How Safe and Secure is Your Property?

The Decision to Harden The Physical Security of Your Property Can Bring Up Many Questions:

1. What are our biggest risks? 

2. Where are we most vulnerable? 

3. What should we fix first? 

Security risk assessments can answer these questions and put building owners, homeowners and operations managers on a path toward greater safety and peace-of-mind.

What is A Security Site Assessment?

A security site assessment or security risk assessment is an evaluation conducted by an accredited security professional that includes an inventory of the assets to be protected, as well as recommendations on how best to protect them. 

They are appropriate for nearly any organization –from schools to corporate headquarters, to sporting arenas, houses of worship, manufacturing plants, municipalities, residential properties, restaurants, and hotels.

Why Have A Security Assessment?

A security assessment identifies your problems and their respective solutions. An Independent Security Consultant can conduct a security assessment at your home or business to determine:

  • Greatest threats to people and property
  • Gaps or areas you’ve overlooked
  • Priority items to tackle right away

Knowing these things will help you prioritize, budget, and implement the right security solutions.


Owners are exposed to civil liability if something happens, like a hold up in their parking lot during which an employee is hurt or killed. Obviously, that’s a tragic situation. And if litigation ensues, that property owner will have to provide proof that they had the appropriate physical security plans, protocols and equipment in place and that they did due diligence to protect that employee, customer or invited guest.

Foreseeability is now part of the conversation when it comes to business, corporate or school security and liability. 

In essence, foreseeability breaks down into two basic questions:

1. Would a reasonable person be able to foresee that this event was to occur?

2. What did the organization do to mitigate or prevent it?

You’ll need to be prepared to answer those questions if there’s an incident at your business.

If there’s a lawsuit, counsel might even call in your security consultant and ask him or her to provide proof of a security assessment and your response to their recommendations. They will even dig into the background of your consultant to see if they’re a qualified expert in their field.

Who Needs Security Risk Assessments?

This is a simple answer. Any building, school, house of worship, public space, residential or commercial property of any size, which is open to the public and houses employees or students.

No matter what you provide as an organization, you must protect your people. People naturally come with domestic issues. Those issues spill over into the workplace and can cause violence.

In fact, targeted violence is on the rise and any organization can be at risk. Recent reports of workplace violence coupled with an increase in certain violent crimes, generally means it’s time for employers to update their workplace violence prevention and mitigation plans. Have you?

If You Haven’t Assessed Your Security Risks in the Past Three Years,

  • Are you confident your security program is prioritizing the risks that pose the greatest threat?
  • Can you state with certainty that your organization is using best security practices to control and manage your vulnerabilities?
  • Will you be able to withstand the scrutiny of an OSHA investigation or properly defend against a premise liability allegation?

Security Risk Assessments are an excellent way to evaluate your existing security program and a great first step to take prior to making security improvements at your business, apartment buildings, condominiums, and private residences or when trying to solve a specific security problem.

Our professionals will conduct an independent evaluation of readiness. We help property managers, homeowners’ associations, individual residents, shopping malls, retailers, corporations, grocery stores, arenas, hotels, bars, and restaurants to accurately assess their security risks and to develop cost effective strategies for the protection of their property, employees, customers and invited guests.

Think of it this way, the assessment is your chance to get out ahead it, cover yourself, protect your employees, customers, invited guests and your business before something happens. It’s hard to put a price on that. 

When people feel safe, they perform better -whether they’re students at school or employees at a small business or large corporation. Risk Mitigation Technologies, LLC has the knowledge and experience to guide you through the steps critical to assessing your security risk. 

Let us help you create a safer and more productive environment by helping you manage your risk and preventing safety and security incidents from occurring.

Here is what one Client said about their satisfaction

"I asked Paul Manley of Risk Mitigation Technologies, LLC to come in and train my officers, staff and other University employees in De-escalation Strategies. I found Paul to be a genuine instructor who presented a great program. Paul presents well and he talked about the importance of de-escalation, communication, both verbal and non-verbal, as well as positive community engagement. Paul imparted valuable information for all who attended. The class really enjoyed participating in the role plays. I would recommend Paul and his team to present to your Department , school or business on this topic.”
