A Vulnerability and Risk Analysis is a study to determine where
a company is vulnerable and which critical assets or operations
are most at risk.
It takes a combination of techniques, talents, and experience to
provide an effective Vulnerability and Risk Analysis Study. To develop
findings and recommendations, Security By Design's consultants:
· Interview key managers
· Extensively examine the facility and typical operations
· Review the specific area and market threats
· Review any history of security problems
· Apply Security By Design's extensive knowledge and experience
with similar companies
· Identify the most critical company assets or operations
The conscientious accomplishment of these studies is essential
to initiating the security system design development process.
A feasibility evaluation compares available solutions to protecting
critical resources to listed company factors. The feasibility evaluation
is performed after a company's most critical assets or operations
Available techniques and technologies are examined to determine
the most effective strategies. These strategies are then evaluated
against company factors such as:
· Typical operations
· Type of business
· Facility layout
· Corporate culture/image
· Industry threats
The best options along with their associated estimated budget impacts
are presented in a formal report. Along with the formal report,
a review and discussion session is generally convened to permit
the client to examine their options further.
Security Force Evaluations
It is important to review the performance level of your security
force on a regular basis.
An experienced Security By Design consultant can provide this service.
We review your security force operation and provide you with a report
that documents the current performance level of the security force
and provides recommendations to correct any less-than-satisfactory
Some of the areas reviewed are:
· The current security force contract (if a contract guard
force is employed)
· The company security policy directives (if a proprietary
guard force is used)
· Security force manning
· Entry and continuation training
· Post composition
· Post orders
· Report writing
· Emergency procedures training and knowledge
· Current knowledge of applicable security directives
In the event that your security force is armed, the procedures
for initial screening and qualification, and compliance with the
mandated periodic training is examined and is a subject of separate
comment in the report.
Are the controls that you have put in place providing you with
the degree of inventory control that you require and expect?
If not, a review your procedures and process controls is critical.
This review will identify the changes that can enhance your control
and confidence in this vital corporate area.
Security By Design examines and evaluates requirements for changes
in corporate policy as well as to the process itself. Inventory
practices and the product distribution process from material input
through product shipment will be carefully examined.
This examination culminates in a comprehensive report with our
findings and recommendations which include technology upgrades along
with budgetary estimates.
This test evaluates all the attributes of your current security
system and then determines its effectiveness in regards to meeting your security
