Update Your Building's Security Assessment

Security professionals find that the threats and vulnerabilities facing a commercial building can change dramatically during a single year. New tenants, terrorism targets, and layoffs could increase the potential of risks. Even improvements in security technologies and guard techniques can change your security profile.

Security taken seriously can provide two good results. First, it can help lower the risk that something will happen in your building. Second, if an incident occurs, security can provide an expert, appropriate response that mitigates the effects. Without an up-to-date security assessment, the only force that can bring about either of those good results is luck.
