Developing and Managing Physical Security Programs: A Guide For Facilities and Human Resource Managers

 
9781495804311: Developing and Managing Physical Security Programs: A Guide For Facilities and Human Resource Managers

The term security in an organizational setting refers to protecting the organization s assets from loss, damage, or misuse. Security is a broad topic, covering everything from protecting people to information technology assets to intellectual property to financial assets to physical plant to organizational reputation. In corporations, the protection of assets is a governance issue. The chief executive officer has a duty to protect the shareholders investment, which means protecting the corporation s assets from loss, damage, or misuse. This book focuses on physical security, because physical security is the basis for all organizational security and the starting point for any security program. It is an essential element in most of the disciplines that fall under the general heading of security. As an example, the physical protection of data centers and networks is essential to the protection of information technology assets and the information stored, processed, and transmitted by those assets. It is also an essential element in the protection of people, as well as in the protection of intellectual property as trade secrets. The first effort businesses make to develop a security program is generally in the area of basic physical security, and, unfortunately, the results are not always as effective as they had envisioned. It is not uncommon that the wrong risks are addressed or the risks are addressed in a manner that does not provide the necessary controls. Resources can be squandered by addressing the wrong risks or by addressing them the wrong way. Sometimes businesses recognize these failures early. Sometimes they fail to recognize them at all. How and why these efforts fail, and in some cases why they may never succeed, is normally related to insufficient effort and/or inadequate knowledge being applied to the project. When an organization does not have a security program, at some point a security incident of sufficient import occurs that it comes to the attention of the senior executive (e.g., CEO, president, owner, etc.) of the business. That individual is sufficiently concerned to say something along the lines of, We need to get some security around here. What happens next is that he or she points to someone in the business (frequently the head of Facilities or Human Resources or Finance or Administration) and assigns to them the task of getting some security. Getting some security is vague to the point that the recipients of the assignment do not actually know what it means, but it seems like a reasonable thing to do, and it is related to the incident that led to the assignment. They are, however, faced with a couple of challenges: With their normal responsibilities, they already have a full plate and they want to get the assignment accomplished as quickly and painlessly as possible. They know essentially nothing about physical security, but view it as a relatively simple matter because they see security officers, cameras, alarm systems, and electronic access control systems in their daily lives. Given those challenges, the approach will likely be to contact a supplier of security services or products to identify the appropriate course of action, as that will appear to be the quickest and most painless way of accomplishing the task. What do the contract security company (i.e., guard company) and security technology company think the business needs in order to get some security? In the case of the contract security company, it is security officers. In the case of the security technology company, it is cameras, alarm systems, etc. This should come as no surprise. They were asked for a solution, and the only solution they can provide involves the services and products they offer. The likely result is that security officers and cameras are put
