What are security consultancy services?

Security consultancy services involve a third party assessing risks towards businesses people, facilities, and assets, using various methods such as site visits and threat assessments. Following assessments, the consultancy company or security service provider will give advice on increasing your safety. Security consultancy is not limited to just physical audits, but can also include policy writing, compliance checks, on-demand support and much more.

Why would you use a security consultancy?

Though security is an essential consideration in any business, small or large, many lack an individual or team with security expertise. Without sufficient knowledge, there are many areas of threats that can be left undetected, along with several compliance issues. Having a consultancy provider by your side combats this and also increases your resilience in the event of unexpected incidents.

Using a third-party security consultancy is also likely to be more cost-effective than employing a full-time consultant in-house, especially if your need for security is minimal. Using a consultancy company ensures that you only pay for what you need, whilst gaining the most holistic view of your infrastructure.

Things to look for in a security consultancy

When putting your trust in a business to advise on your security infrastructure, you must conduct due diligence to find a credible and competent company. A business’s accreditations can be a good indication of their capabilities. As a minimum, all security providers should be SIA ACS audited with proof available on request.

We have all the relevant accreditations based on our services and many more. The details of our accreditations can be found HERE.
