The best risk management plans begin with a complete overview of security processes, systems, and procedures and how they’re integrated into daily operations and the organization as a whole. A security master plan should be more than a static review of the organization and best-case-scenario programs; it needs to be proactive and adaptable enough to lead through the challenges companies face now, as well as in the future.
When Guidepost Solutions creates master security plans, we’re focused on delivering a comprehensive planning tool that clearly outlines a company’s unique challenges and vulnerabilities and identifies the best solutions for overcoming them. We evaluate the four core elements of the security plan including physical, technical, operational, and organizational posture.
Physical: We review all aspects of how the built environment interacts with people, from how many entry points and windows each building has, to the layout of external features and how visitors move through the property and facilities.
Technical: We assess all the security-related technology and equipment used from identity management, access controls, and communication, to cyber security and audiovisual systems.
Operational: We conduct a full policy and procedure review to ensure adequate processes are in place to support the security plan and get the best ROI on programs and equipment.
Organizational: We assess and help streamline organizational systems to make certain security personnel and operations are the most effective and efficient they can be.
OUR SECURITY MASTER PLANS WILL:
- Identify potential threats and assess the probability of an occurrence.
- Evaluate weaknesses and vulnerabilities within existing security programs including shortcomings in the design or structure of facilities, operations, technology, or procedures.
- Evaluate potential security solutions to identify the most effective and suitable options.
- Include expert guidance and insight to help prioritize competing needs and opportunities.
- Clearly define the “next steps” for implementing master plans and adapting to potential changes as they occur.
Guidepost Solutions develops master plans based on an in-depth review of the client’s existing security program, including night and day observations, associated systems, staffing, and current policies and procedures. Our intent is to provide independent, objective consulting services to assist the client with a better understanding of the physical, systems, and operational deficiencies. We will also provide strategies and cost-benefit analyses for the actions necessary to comply with best practice recommendations typically found in similar buildings. Our goal is to address all facets of security planning concurrently to provide a security master plan that serves as a coordinated and unified security solution.
