To build an effective security program, it is necessary to understand the nature and source of potential threats and one’s vulnerability to those threats. Our approach to conducting such risk assessments is based on our many years of experience in both the public safety and private security arenas. In addition, we have received specialized risk assessment training and certification by the U.S. Government in a methodology approved by the Department of Homeland Security in the wake of the events of September 11th.
Our comprehensive risk assessment process works equally well for assessment of individuals, buildings, campuses of buildings, or corporations. Our first step is to meet with the client to determine the client’s needs and expectations, and then build a risk assessment team that will work with the client or client’s team to conduct the assessment. Once the risk assessment has been completed, depending on the client’s needs, we can prepare a detailed implementation plan that contains specific actions required to mitigate the risk determined by the risk assessment.
For our corporate clients in the current Sarbanes Oxley environment, risk assessments can be extremely helpful to minimize the risk of shareholder litigation, to ensure compliance with applicable regulatory requirements, and to meet requirements of insurance carriers. For individuals, including corporate executives, a CSC risk assessment can help ensure their peace of mind to know that they – and their families – are adequately protected.
