Security Management

What security areas do you cover in your Security Management consultancy services?

As professional Security Management consultants, and one of a few in Africa who are Board certified in both Security Management and Competitive Intelligence, we provide a range of unique, yet proven, solutions for the protection of your four corporate assets: property, people, information and reputation.


Can you develop security policies and procedures for start-ups and new businesses?

Yes, we have extensive experience of developing the necessary security policies and procedures to ensure that the right people take responsibility for security within the organisation.


Can you conduct vetting and background checks on executives working in various African countries?

Based on the individual’s identifying particulars we source background intelligence to confirm the bona fides or identify moral hazard about executives whom you might consider recruiting for senior management positions. Similarly, should you require background intelligence on managers before their promotion, or applicants before their recruitments, we will conduct the necessary checks to enable you to proceed with confidence.


Can you save me money by conducting a security review at my business premises?

We have saved our Clients a substantial amount of cash based on a review of their actual manpower guarding requirements. Too often, procurement and contract managers are not security trained and lack an understanding of the risks within their working environment. Guarding companies exploit this lack of knowledge and sell guards as a security solution rather than integrating manpower within a technical solutions package.


Can you turn a security department from a cost centre into a profit centre?

The answer to this question depends on two factors: the level of Senior Management buy-in; and an understanding of the internal market for the security services you can offer. Sometimes, Senior Management wants security to be included in operating overheads. In other instances, independent business units will negotiate their own prices with external security service providers.
Therefore, the solution is to pursued Senior Management that a corporate security department can generate income and contribute to the company’s bottom line like any other business unit.


Before conducting a Security Management consulting service, how do you charge?

Like all the business we conduct, we provide a fixed budget and timescale based on the Client’s brief of Scope of Works. By comprehensively understanding your brief and requirements, we develop an intervention plan to provide you with a cost-effective Security Management solution. Once our budget is agreed upfront, we will charge a pro-rata amount during the course of the project. In this way, you will know exactly how much you will need to spend and what the end product will be.
