CONSULTING SERVICES

Protective Options offers more than just a consultancy based on pre-established “best practices” for certain industries. We also incorporate practical, real world, and on-the-ground experiences sourced from our network of resources to provide reliable security threat management.

INDEPENDENT AND PRUDENT DECISION MAKING

  • Independent security advice and recommendations that are not influenced by compensation or remuneration from security system manufacturers or system integrator’s
  • Security recommendations that take into account and evaluate whether security systems or personnel are more cost-effective in meeting client security objectives
  • Practical solutions based on foresight and extensive experience providing security assessments and recommendations to diverse clientele

SECURITY PROGRAM POLICY & PROCEDURE DEVELOPMENT

For an organization’s security program to be effective, it must clearly define the duties and expectations for everyone in the organization. Protective Options assists clients of all sizes in developing and documenting policies and procedures that will align operations and security
efforts for optimal results.
Given the complexity of most organizations today, developing effective security programs can be an overwhelming endeavor. These programs must include not only the security department, but also management, other related units, and employees. As a leader in matters of physical and
operational security, Protective Options is able to help clients create policies and procedures that work in concert to close gaps that might otherwise create exposure for the organization.

SECURITY MASTER PLANNING

All good security planning begins with a master plan-a vision of the security department, its roles and responsibilities, and how they fit into the overall organization. Protective Options looks at security holistically in that we address all aspects of security planning simultaneously to provide our clients with a security master plan that serves as a cohesive security solution.

FACILITY THREAT ASSESSMENTS & SECURITY REVIEWS

Effective facility security starts with a clear understanding of the facility’s vulnerability to a wide range of threats from terrorism and workplace violence to internal/external theft. Protective Options’ approach ensures a 360-degree assessment of facility threats from multiple perspectives: internally and externally, current and emerging.
Because facility security must be addressed on several levels, the most productive approach requires the kind of multidisciplinary expertise you find with Protective Options’ seasoned professionals.
This enables our team to determine the likelihood of any particular threat, prioritize action plans, recommend appropriate security measures to reduce the risks from these threats, and implement solutions when necessary.

VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENTS

A comprehensive security review and vulnerability assessment is an essential step in securing your organization.
Protective Options’ vulnerability assessment methodology begins with an in-depth security review. This is a detailed exercise where we:

  • Look at current areas of exposure and any past security incidents in order to identify potential vulnerabilities.
  • Conduct onsite interviews of employees and other key individuals for critical insights and information about situations, policies and procedures.
  • Provide a gap analysis to isolate areas where your security program does not meet the best solution for addressing the unique problem.

At the conclusion of our analysis, Protective Options will make recommendations and guide you in implementing measures to mitigate any areas of vulnerability to reduce your risk.
