What is an outsourced security contract?
The outsourced security model transitions an entire security provision to an external provider, with them handling each aspect of the security contract. This includes training, payroll, project management, recruitment, service delivery, compliance, and much more. The business would hire the service provider to fulfil all their security requirements from their own portfolio of services and pool of security officers.
There are several advantages to outsourced security, including the peace of mind given by a provider’s accreditations and the delivery of established infrastructure. Though there are cons such as a lack of control over the team and a lack of consistency when changing service providers.
How do we mobilise outsourced security contracts?
We created our tried and tested 90-day onboarding and mobilisation model by optimising our technology, clear processes, and contingency plans. This covers everything from confirming service provisions to monitoring statistics and management information, in just 4 carefully planned stages.
- Pre-mobilisation stage (Days 0-30)
- Mobilisation stage (Days 30-60)
- Going live (Days 60-90)
- Aftercare (Days 90+)
What kind of business is outsourced security best for?
Long term, outsourced security is best for businesses with little to no security expertise, as all security is managed by the service provider. Outsourced security will also offer greater flexibility in the services available for a client to use. Many businesses may not have enough members in their workforce to efficiently manage their own security, which is where outsourcing is beneficial.
Outsourcing can be associated with a lack of control; however, with the right service provider, suitable businesses can benefit from the services and will see more success than if they were to manage their own security provisions.
