Have security policies have been changed? Is the security equipment functioning or being maintained? Operational managers are not experienced security professionals and there are many things to consider. This knowledge will prevent surprises and provide a healthy awareness.
Everyone wants to remain healthy, so, it is customary to receive an annual physical. This checkup will tell the status of a person’s physical condition. For the same reason, companies need to consider the physical security condition of their business.
Management has many responsibilities to consider in maintaining a productive and successful operation. Many businesses, after the fact, have reported being targeted with violence, theft, trespassing, vandalism, bomb threats, etc. Being prepared for these criminal acts involves understanding and managing security operations. With this in mind it is a wise investment of time to schedule annual security reviews. Many have neglected to do so and it has become a costly burden.
An annual checkup of security conditions will clarify if they are current with today’s trends, have any operational gaps, or simply need to be updated due to company or regulatory changes. The annual review should consider these security areas.
1. Policy and Procedures
2. Emergency Planning
3. Security Responsibilities
1. Access Control
3. Property Control
Business vulnerabilities can expose serious liabilities. Management may not be aware of these problems until after they occur. Taking the first step is developing a familiarity with business security programs.
