SGC Security Services
Strategic security consulting identifies and examines threats and risks – the foreseeable and unexpected – to clients and ensures they are appropriately mitigated against the hazards across their entire infrastructure in a focused manner. We work with senior managers, security directors, CEOs, and others to ensure that security resources are aligned to meet the ethos of our client’s business and policies. This often starts with a strategic security risk assessment before developing the executive security directive and establishing the culture. SGC Security Services can assist with the production of corporate policies and standards or security schemes and delivery plans for the enterprise.
Driven by our Security team SGC Security Services can provide expert advice on every aspect of security, including projects and events, address a specific security need, expansion, mobilisation of contracts and sites, risk assessments and the implementation of effective measures to combat the threat from business crippling activities including fire, natural disasters, security by design, creating a defensive space, terrorism, cybercrime and criminal behaviours. Working to industry best practices, British and International Standards (BS and ISO) and local and international laws is how SGC Security Services will look to establish the defence arm of your business.
Security management consultancy is focused on people and implementation. It includes assessing security management, outsourced providers, and operational planning and implementation. Highly qualified in their respective specialist fields, our staff are committed to offering objective and impartial advice, independent of any manufacturer or service provider – whether it is us providing the service or not. SGC Security Services can advise security managers in many areas: manned guarding or security systems procurement, development of operational processes,banking, defensive space design or testing and assurance. Using a consultant, SGC Security Services can provide clients with that extra credibility for a specific need or implementation of change. As well as programmed consultancy, our security risk consultants provide specialist advice to senior managers faced with highly complex and sensitive issues.
Operational security consultancy concentrates on the frontline of security delivery at the site, project or event – primarily at security team level. It will often involve personnel, operational and technical security elements. It balances different security measures – human, process, physical, and technical – to ensure that security meets business needs, risks and threats accordingly. SGC Security Services will conduct a full gap analysis of required vs. actual to ensure there are no gaps in the security delivery on the final product. Our consultants also test existing security measures using a blend of penetration testing, social engineering, competency reviews and technical security sweeps to ensure that the security policies and procedures in place are effective and applied appropriately.
Using our tried and tested risk methodology, our consultancy approach is delivered by an experienced and diverse consulting team who are supported by our investigators, instructors and sector specialists as needed. For more long-term projects and contracts, SGC Security Services embeds consultants in a client’s business to occupy management, analysis or internal consultancy posts as required. We share our expertise and knowledge of best practice in a wide range of security disciplines which they have acquired through real-life experience at the ‘sharp end’.
SGC will look to make the security consultancy as cost effective as possible for each client through looking at product procurement cost savings, as well as preventing costly system design and planning mistakes ensuring security projects not only meets your expectations but exceeds them.
