The importance of guarding within an effective security management plan
February 1, 2013
Hi-Tech Security Solutions posed the question of the importance of guarding within an effective security management plan. Are guards being replaced by technology?
Jenny Reid, director of iFacts, agreed that security officers are essential to a good risk management plan. “Manpower forms one of the key elements within the five components of a security risk assessment and management plan. The other four are technology, systems and processes, physical security and how the system is managed. Effective and thorough screening and assessment of the manpower is a vital element to ensure that an honest security officer is able to do the job correctly.”
