We are in an age of vulnerability, where corporate security and having security protocols in place is not optional. Threats range from a physical attack to an information leak.
But according to Stream Data Centers, many businesses don’t understand the full range of environmental and organizational policies to mitigate risk. A new report contends that while security technology companies and guard force providers are certainly important elements in prevention threats, they might not have the perspective to provide broad security solutions.
Companies like Stream Data Centers can provide analysis of security programs, and offer solutions that align with your business goals and take your budget into account, as well.
In the new white paper, Stream Data Centers walks readers through ways to assess your own security, before bringing in a security consultant, including answering questions like the following:
- Are your security and safety policies based on an unbiased assessment of risk?
- Are the policies accompanied by specific procedures to address threats?
- Are you certain that your employees adhere to those procedures?
The full report, available here, continues this line of questioning.
Stream Data Centers explains that a thorough security evaluation must include specific protocols for enterprise protection. This includes a physical security risk assessment, policy and procedure evaluation and development and security awareness training.
“The right security protocols start with analyzing physical and intellectual property safeguards, along with customized plans to help organizations maximize protection and minimize risk.” — Stream Data Centers
The report also explores the different elements of security system design.
A security consultant can help address and implement the following elements of security system design:
- Video management system
- Access control system
- Integrated systems to monitor triggered events
Consultants can also assist with security vendor management. According to Stream Data Centers, “Evaluating business security includes an objective evaluation of your current security and/or guard force company,” including due diligence on security firms, oversight of policies and performance, and guard force provider oversight.
The new white paper asserts that ultimately, focusing on security can be a key element of business continuity planning, and consultants will help explore key stakeholder insights, pinpointing mission-critical functions, and establishing clear protocols for staff and systems.
