A Security Risk Assessment is a non-invasive, comprehensive examination of the physical security controls at a particular location.
Many organizations spend thousands of dollars to implement physical security controls, but do not evaluate them to ensure they are functioning as intended. Furthermore, controls are often applied in an inconsistent manner, leaving security gaps. For organizations truly concerned about the effectiveness of their physical security controls, ARK Security can identify gaps and weak points that expose an organization to risk.
Who Needs This?
Physical security controls are essential to a comprehensive security or information security program. From casual trespassers to committed criminals, poor physical security can jeopardize the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive information, not to mention the continuity of business processes and the safety of personnel.
Whether a high rise in an urban environment or a manufacturing plant in a rural area, each site comes with a unique set of physical
security challenges and requirements. Physical security controls are essential to protecting facilities, sensitive information, and personnel from natural and human threats. But ineffective or
inconsistent controls negate the very protection they are intended to provide.
In a Security Risk Assessment, ARK Security performs a walk-through of selected facilities and evaluates whether your organization’s physical security controls are in place, effective, and adequate. Our experts evaluate perimeter defenses, access control systems, video surveillance, lighting and other control groups essential to an effective physical security program. This uncovers any major gaps and vulnerabilities in these controls, helping organizations determine whether controls are meeting their intent and resources are effectively utilized.
