The U.S. Security Care, Inc. Security Survey entails an analysis of your company’s facility, work force and critical assets, and evaluates its vulnerability to potential threats and risks. The survey results in a matrix that reveals the direct impact of these potential threats and risks on your most valuable assets and operations. The survey provides the information necessary to achieve the appropriate levels of safety and security your organization needs to cost-effectively limit risk and liability and prepare for continued operations during a potential crisis.
The Survey Process
The Security Survey begins by listening to your key stakeholders and setting objectives. The scope is based on the established objectives, corporate and industry history, and preliminary assessments and analysis. This process typically involves:
- A thorough assessment of existing security policies and procedures
- Interviews with senior management and others familiar with the critical assets of the organization and those responsible for establishing and operating the security and safety measures, such as access controls, pre-employment screening, perimeter and interior security, and loss prevention
- Identification of critical assets, vulnerabilities and threats ranked according to probability and impact
- Changes in security and safety policies and procedures aimed at mitigating the risks to your organization’s most critical and vulnerable operations
USSC, Inc. creates a preliminary report that meets the survey’s objectives and scope. The report assesses critical assets, potential risks and suggested measures to limit exposure and provide stability and business continuity during a potential crisis. The preliminary report is reviewed and discussed with senior management before the final report is prepared to ensure that it meets the organization’s objectives and receives management buy-in.
Security surveys do not follow a laundry list of do’s and don’ts. Each survey is as individual as the industry, company and facility being surveyed. Typical factors include:
- Scope of operations (local, regional, national, multi-national), location of these operations and number of facilities
- Amount and value of assets, including people, property and information
- Visibility of corporation and its executives
The scope and contents of the Security Survey report are determined by continuous communication with the client. We work with you to provide a value-added approach to improved security and safety for your people, property and data.
