Planning for security is the best approach to liability avoidance
and minimizing business disruption caused by a non-business event.
To address this area, Security By Design has created some customized
products, which are described below.
Security Master Plans
SBD works with our clients to create an overall framework for projecting
an organization's security program. This framework is based on a
review of the client's:
· operational philosophy
· their place in a market or industry segment
· future business plans
· overall security program objectives
The framework carefully identifies the security elements currently
in place and those projected to be available in the future. Comparing
those on hand and the predicted security elements with the typical
security threats anticipated 5 to 10 years in the future enables
us to develop a Security Master Plan. This master plan identifies
the key security system elements that are required to effectively
handle the predicted threats and protect the organization's assets,
along with the time phasing of their acquisition and activation.
An effective security master plan must be reviewed on a regular
A review will ensure that interim organization or industry changes
have not compromised any part of the future planning.
Long Range Implementation Plans
This type of plan builds off of the security master plan or an
existing client generated security plan.
A long range implementation plan identifies the order or priority
for implementation of the various pieces of the planned security
The priority may be based on a combination of:
· operational necessity
· interrelationships of other corporate program elements
· new government or industry regulations
· identification of new or emerging threats to an organization's
assets or productivity.
As with the security master plans, projecting 5 or 10 years into
the future is a murky look at best with the enormous rate of change
that is present in technology as well as emerging threats to organizations
brought about by some of the same technology advances.
Therefore, periodic review of these plans is essential once they
are in place. SBD can initiate the plan and assist in periodic reviews
and recommendations for plan updates.
Executive Protection Planning
The Executive Protection Plan identifies the vulnerabilities specific
to each individual executive.
Vulnerabilities evaluated include:
· life style
· existing organization protective programs
An executive protection plan is developed that recommends improved
procedures, additional residential and vehicle security equipment,
and corporate security monitoring capabilities if needed, based
upon the vulnerabilities found.
