Is a Security Survey worthwhile?

At DPH Security Consultancy we would certainly advocate having a thorough Security Survey carried out on an annual basis. Well, of course we would say that…! However, increasingly it has been shown to be the case that after security incidents or breaches have occurred, if a thorough security survey had been carried out prior to an incident taking place, it would have greatly assisted in identifying and minimising any existing potential security vulnerabilities and at the very least reduced damage and disruption while ensuring organisations were properly prepared for any such unwanted security attacks or breaches.

Through ensuring a physical examination of a facility and its operations with respect to personnel and company assets is properly conducted, DPH Security Consultancy is able to examine potential risks to assets that may be exposed to any security threats, and review the measures that are in place to protect them and to mitigate liability. DPH Security Consultancy can identify vulnerabilities and make recommendations on how these can be improved. This can be relevant for new locations or existing facilities, particularly after a loss or incident has occurred.

DPH Security Consultancy is exceptionally qualified to conduct Physical Security Site Surveys and carry out Threat, Risk & Vulnerability Analysis on company and residential assets .

During a standard survey, areas such as perimeter and building access control, employee identification systems, fencing, lighting, CCTV systems and general security related procedures involving loss prevention are reviewed. Recommendations and suggestions are then provided to ensure clients are kept abreast of the latest security issues, products and countermeasures available.

DPH Security Consultancy constantly keeps up to date with the ever evolving trends affecting the security industry, whilst maintaining professional competency to ensure clients receive the highest level of security expertise available.

Clients receive written recommendations regarding the use of security and technology such as CCTV, IP cameras and remote monitoring, access control systems, facility management systems, visitor management systems, electronic guard tour systems, and other physical security “tools” to help them achieve their strategic objectives and improve the effectiveness of their overall security programme.
