Physical Security Consultancy: About Us


About Independent Security Risk Assessments

When it comes to assessing security risks, an independent perspective is crucial. Similar to an unbiased audit conducted by an external party, independent security risk assessments provide accurate insights into potential vulnerabilities. At our company, we prioritize impartiality, ensuring that our focus remains solely on conducting comprehensive security risk assessments. Unlike others, we do not engage in selling security hardware, software, installation services, or security guarding. Our dedication lies in identifying risks and delivering well-researched recommendations for mitigating them.

Why Independence consultancies Matters.

There are consultancies and companies that offer assessment, sale, and installation of security hardware while also being part of the management network. This dual role as the referee and the player creates divided attention, with their primary focus on profit-driven activities like selling and installing hardware. In contrast, our complete independence allows us to concentrate solely on identifying security risks. Our objective is to provide you with accurate information and effective risk mitigation strategies, free from any personal motivations.

Comprehensive and Tailored Approach

Physical Security Consultancy: Each property has its own unique security requirements, and a generic approach won’t effectively eliminate specific risks. That’s why we diligently search for security vulnerabilities through extensive research and experience. We uncover even the unpleasant truths by asking the necessary questions that in-house assessors may shy away from. Unlike internal assessors, we have no hesitation in confronting these issues. Additionally, an in-house assessor cannot objectively evaluate themselves or their managers. By addressing these challenges head-on, we ensure a thorough assessment.

Assessment of Service Providers:

Our commitment extends beyond identifying risks within your organization. We also evaluate service providers, not to vilify them but to assist in rectifying any shortcomings. Service providers, due to their affiliations, cannot objectively assess their own employers or themselves. Comparatively, our independence enables us to provide valuable insights and recommendations for improvement. It’s like asking a 4-year-old who has the best mom; their answer will always favor their own mother, regardless of her shortcomings. Similarly, service providers may overlook their own deficiencies without an independent assessment.

The Role of Independent Consultants:

Engaging an independent security risk assessment consultant who is unaffiliated with your installation company or any security-related entity is the ideal solution. This ensures a genuinely impartial evaluation, devoid of any conflicts of interest. Our goal is to safeguard your business by providing objective and trustworthy security recommendations.pexels-sora-shimazaki-5668765 by .

Evolution of Security Risk Assessments:

In the past five years, security has undergone significant changes. While advancements in hardware and technology continue to shape the landscape, other critical factors have also evolved. Factors like the “court readiness” process, the importance of maintaining a “master copy,” and various related aspects have gained prominence. It is no longer sufficient to focus solely on identifying crime-contributing risks; management, court processes, documents, procedures, and data capture are now integral to a comprehensive assessment. The Thabo Bester parliamentary inquiry serves as a stark reminder of the consequences faced by individuals due to inadequate information and documentation during legal proceedings.
