Why You Need Security Surveys And Audits

, / 527 0

Do you know what the risks are to your business? The experienced team at Special Response Corporation will work closely with you to identify all potential security risks through a comprehensive survey process.

The benefits of a security survey are numerous. Sometimes companies are too close to their own action to see potential threats to their security. By using an external security survey company they are likely to uncover security threats that the company members would never have seen.

It is essential that you understand the risks to your business right now and do all that you can to protect your valuable assets. If you were to attempt this yourself then this is likely to disrupt your operations and steal away valuable management time.

The better solution is to call in the security survey experts from Special Response Corporation who will perform the survey in a professional manner and provide you with a comprehensive risk assessment report.

What can you expect from a Risk Assessment Survey?

Our experienced security assessment team will look at a number of different areas of your business which will include:

  • The assessment of any vulnerabilities and threats that are applicable to your business
  • Provide you with an analysis of the demographics of crime in the immediate area
  • Create a thorough review of your current security practices and employment safety processes at all of your locations
  • Analyze your travel routines and procedures and safety measures
  • Make an assessment of electronic security systems and how they compare with best practices
  • Provide you with an initial threat report that includes fully documented results from all of the security assessment work

The report that we provide takes into account potential threats, critical assets and recommendations for the implementation of further security measures to limit the threats and ensure that your business can continue to operate in a safe and secure manner.

We do not provide a conventional list of the things that you should do and those that you shouldn’t. Every one of our security surveys is tailored to your specific needs. We take into consideration the scope of your operations (local, national, global) and the number of locations you have.

There will also be an assessment of your assets to record an inventory and assess value. This includes your people, your information and your properties. We will communicate with you regularly and change the scope of the survey if required to meet your requirements.

Security Audits

Most companies have security measures in place but they are useless if there is little or no enforcement. A security audit from Special Response Corporation will assess the effectiveness of the security processes that you have in place.

With our comprehensive security audits we will identify any vulnerabilities and gaps that may exist in your current processes and systems. You may find that some of your employees are bypassing security measures to make their job easier for example. This is a common problem.

We have found that sometimes the bypassing of security measures is a result of people being careless or just forgetting that the measures exist. The larger your business, the more of a challenge it is to enforce your security measures across the board.

Once we have completed our security audit of your business we will provide you with recommendations based on our vast experience. It will always be our aim to provide you practical recommendations that you will feel comfortable implementing.

Another reason you may wish to call us in to perform a security audit is if you suspect that there is some wrongdoing and you need an internal investigation. We will provide you with a full report of our findings which you can use for legal proceedings as well as to improve your current security practices.

Special Response Corporation has more than 25 years of experience in the security business and we would be delighted to discuss your security survey and security audit requirements with you. Please contact us today.
