Security Risk Management
An expanding array of threats, new laws, and more stringent regulations is forcing companies and institutions to take a closer look at their security programs. When security and crime incidents occur, senior management, customers, and even the media look for answers to questions about:
  • Standards - Is the security program based on recognized industry standards?
  • Personnel - How many security staff are on duty? Is this adequate?
  • Guidance - Are clear security procedures in place? Are security staff trained?
  • Systems - Is there a CCTV system? Is it optimized? Are there enough cameras?

On a good day these questions are followed up quietly and internally. But now more than ever before, these and other tough questions play out in a much more public forum as even a cursory scan of news and social media sources will confirm.

The David Hyde & Associates team has been involved in the design, review and implementation of security and crime prevention programs at some of Canada's highest profile landmarks.
