A corporate security plan is a document that provides a template for security guidance for your corporate business. It should cover everything from the pre-employment screening of employees and visitor management to CCTV monitoring, access control and exterior security lighting.
No matter the type of industry or building that are you in, it is essential that you have a security “map” to follow. Your corporate security plan can then be shared with all managers and service providers to ensure that security standards are met and maintained at all times.
If you don’t have a plan, or maybe your current security plan needs updating, here are some things to consider:
The first step to developing a comprehensive security plan is to update your security assessment. This way you can define your current standards and determine which threats and vulnerabilities you must address. A well thought out and considered security assessment will essentially lay the foundation of your security plan going forward. When carrying out a security assessment:
- Identify the security risks
- Determine who could be at risk
- Decide what precautions and security measures need to be taken
- Document all of your findings
- Carry out regular assessments
Big Picture Approach
You should adopt a “big picture approach” when developing your security plan. This will ensure that your company and building is safe in all aspects and areas. By looking at the bigger picture when attempting to identify the security risks your business faces, you will likely have considered all vulnerabilities and risks, no matter the probability, and planned how best to tackle them.
