Security Risk Assessments

Physical Security Risk Assessments

An Independent Security Risk Assessment on your property is the most important element in terms of identifying the strengths, weaknesses vulnerabilities in your personal, physical and asset protection security. A risk assessed security review is necessary to ensure that your security is based on a strong, sound and solid foundation – both presently and into the future.

You don't have security if you don't have an Independent Security Risk Assessment report on the table.

Our property risk assessments include:

  • Site visits to sites, building & environments
  • Analysis of current security measures (CCTV, gates, lighting, perimeter defences, control access, alarms, guarding etc)
  • Review current security protocols and policies (incl maintanance, management, review, response, monitoring etc)
  • Meet with relevant persons, stakeholders, current security personnel
  • Video and images of site and environment & drone footage if applicable
  • Local crime pattern analysis and national crime issues
  • Client profiling and risk analysis 
  • Submission of detailed risk assesssment report
  • Submission of treatment plan for identified weaknesseses and vulnerabilities
  • Recommendations of hardware, technology and engineers
  • Overarching security strategy encompassing all elements requiring protection and safeguarding

What is a Property Security Risk Assessment?

security risk planning for buildings

Our comprehensive commercial property & residential security assessments identify, assesses, and implement key physical security controls in particular environments for property's across London and the Home Counties. It also focuses on preventing security breaches and strengthens vulnerabilities. Carrying out a risk assessment allows a client to view their current security measures holistically—from an attacker’s perspective. It supports the client in making informed resource allocation, technology, and security control implementation decisions. Thus, conducting an assessment is an integral part of a clients personal security risk management process.

The 4 steps of a successful physical security risk assessment model

  1. Identification. Determine all critical assets of the individual, environement and infrastructure. Create a risk profile for each element.
  2. Assessment. Administer an approach to assess the identified physical security risks for all critical assets. After careful evaluation and assessment, we determine how to effectively and efficiently allocate solutions towards risk mitigation. The assessment approach or methodology must analyse the correlation between assets, threats, vulnerabilities, and mitigating controls.
  3. Mitigation. Define a mitigation approach and enforce security controls for each risk.
  4. Prevention. Implement measure and processes to minimise threats and vulnerabilities from occurring.

Physical Security Risk Assessment, Why The Need?

A physical security risk assessment is a systematic evaluation of potential risks and vulnerabilities within a client's security infrastructure, processes, and assets.

It involves identifying potential threats, assessing the likelihood and impact of those threats, and developing strategies to mitigate or manage the risks effectively.

Here are the key steps involved in conducting a physical security risk assessment:

  1. Identify Assets: Begin by identifying the critical assets within the environment that needs protection. These may include physical assets (e.g., buildings, equipment), information assets (e.g., data, intellectual property), personnel, and reputation.
  2. Threat Identification: Identify potential threats that could impact the client's assets. This can include natural disasters, theft, vandalism, cyberattacks, insider threats, or any other relevant risks. It is wise to consider both external and internal threats.
  3. Vulnerability Assessment: Assess the vulnerabilities or weaknesses within the environment's security infrastructure, processes, and controls that could be exploited by the identified threats. This involves reviewing physical security measures, IT systems, access controls, policies and procedures, and any other relevant areas.
  4. Likelihood Assessment: Evaluating the likelihood or probability of the identified threats occurring. Considering factors such as historical data, industry trends, geographic location, and threat intelligence to determine the likelihood of each threat materialising.
  5. Impact Assessment: Assess the potential impact or consequences of each identified threat on the environment's assets. This could include financial losses, operational disruptions, reputational damage, regulatory non-compliance, or any other relevant impacts.
  6. Risk Analysis: Analysing the combination of likelihood and impact for each identified threat to prioritise risks. This can be done by assigning a risk rating or score to each threat based on predefined criteria. This helps in identifying high-risk areas that require immediate attention.
  7. Risk Treatment: Developing strategies and controls to mitigate or manage the identified risks. This may involve implementing security measures, updating policies and procedures, enhancing physical security, implementing cybersecurity controls, training staff, or any other appropriate actions. We consider both preventive and responsive measures.
  8. Risk Monitoring and Review: Regularly monitor and review the effectiveness of the implemented risk mitigation measures. Updating the risk assessment periodically or whenever significant changes occur within the client's environment or threat landscape.

It is recognised that risk assessments should be carried out by experienced professionals. The process should be tailored to the specific needs and context of the client or organisation, considering its size, industry, regulatory requirements, and risk tolerance.
