Q: How can we tell if our present security program is adequate to meet our needs? Can we do a better job of security with the resources that we already have?

A: A formal Security Assessment will help you to answer these questions and more. The assessment can be thought of as being similar to the annual physical “check-up” that many people get from their physician. During the assessment, all aspects of the security program are examined, any weaknesses are identified, and suggestions for improvements are made. In addition, opportunities where costs can be reduced or where security operations can be made more efficient are identified.


Q: Is the process you call a “Security Assessment” known by other names?

A: Yes. Different security practitioners sometimes have different names for this process. These names may include “Security Survey”, “Security Audit”, “Risk Analysis”, “Threat Assessment”, “Threat and Vulnerability Assessment” (TVA), “Risk Assessment” , “Security Gap Analysis”, and many others.


Q: How long does it take to have a Security Assessment performed?

A: It typically takes about thirty days from the time we start the security assessment process until the time that we deliver the first draft of the Security Assessment Report. Larger and more complicated facilities may require more time. We are often able to give the client a preliminary report, either verbally or as a brief written outline, within just a few days after we have completed our field work.


Q: My insurance company provides me with a free safety and security audit every year. Is this the same thing as the Security Assessment that you provide?

A: The security and safety audits provided by most insurance organizations usually consist of conducting a physical inspection using a prepared checklist. The inspector notes compliance or non-compliance in each area on the checklist and prepares a summary report of his findings.

It is our opinion that this type of audit is useful in identifying obvious physical security deficiencies (holes in fencing, burned out lights, etc.). However, this simple type of audit only looks at a small subset of the total security program, and is nowhere near as comprehensive as a formal Security Assessment.


Q: How can De-escalation Training benefit my business or agency?

A: Your safety may depend on your conflict management style. Therefore, it is important to develop strategies for ensuring personal safety in potentially stressful situations.

In any conflict, you have a choice;

                      • Escalate the incident further
                      • De-escalate the situation

De-escalation training can have great benefits for any organization. For example, less workplace violence incidents, less use of force incidents, decreased disciplinary actions, decreased customer complaints, and increased customer satisfaction.
