When it comes to physical security, balance is everything. While there is such a thing as too little security, there is also such a thing as too much security; what may work well for a manufacturing environment may not necessarily work as well for a pharmaceutical research & development or corporate office environment.
Striking the right balance that provides for a safe and secure workplace that aligns with business goals, operational objectives and corporate culture is a delicate balancing act that, if not done properly, can result in unacceptable risk or decreased productivity. At Oppaset Security Consulting we work with our clients to develop an understanding of their business model, risk environment and corporate culture to develop not only industry leading security programs, but a corporate security culture where the workforce actively supports and engages in corporate security initiatives
To deliver comprehensive and cost effective security solutions that provide for the protection of our clients' personnel, property and assets; while at the same time not being so restrictive as to impede the business process. In this effort, we partner with our clients to identify the risks associated with their business environment and develop optimal security protocols and programs to meet their unique business needs.
