Physical Security Risk Assessment

Linked Security NY has years of experience designing and installing complete security solutions for all businesses, large and small, throughout New York City and the surrounding boroughs. We make sure to stay up to date with the latest trends in new technologies, compliance, regulations, and security best practices. 

We also know that not every New York City corporation or building facility will have the same security requirements and challenges. NYC organizations can no longer treat security as a separate part of the business. Companies must blend their business and security goals to align synergies and streamline processes. 

Revealing Security Systems Vulnerabilities

Linked Security NY offers local businesses free onsite security assessments, which include an audit and analysis of your current security system operations. In this assessment, we can also learn about your facility’s needs and recommend a plan to address security vulnerability gaps and operational inefficiencies. 

A comprehensive building security system may include a variety of security controls, such as intercoms, access control systems, a CCTV video system, door locks, security guards, fences, adequate lighting, alarms, and much more.    

Our professional security advisors can prepare a comprehensive security risk assessment based on your current security policies and systems. A building’s physical security is the system of technology, hardware components, and practices that protects the physical assets within your space, including doors, entry points, resources, equipment, people, proprietary data, files, and other hardware. 

What Kind Of Resources/Assets Exist On Your Site?

  • Buildings 
  • Building Infrastructure (HVAC/Building Systems) 
  • Digital Infrastructure (Networks/Data Centers) 
  • Operational Equipment (Manufacturing Equipment/Fleet Vehicles) 
  • Inventory/Warehouse/Supply Chain 
  • Intellectual Property 
  • Strategic Knowledge (R&D/Marketing /Operational) 
  • Reputation and Brand 
  • Executive Leadership     

This risk assessment consultation can prioritize what can be improved (based on levels of potential risk) and how security operations and procedures will be managed. Linked Security NY understands the different daily risks your business can face and can be a trusted security partner to develop best-in-class comprehensive security solutions.

Physical Security Risks Assessment Process

Before a business can determine what the right security solutions are, some fundamental questions must be asked: 

  • What am I looking to protect? 
  • What do I want to protect it from? 
  • Do you have a security system in place?
  • How many non-badged visitors do you receive each day at your site?
  • How do I prevent an incident or risk from happening? 
  • If something does happen, how can it be contained? 
  • How do I recover from it? 

Linked Security NY designs security solutions that will align with and add value to your company’s approach to managing security. Our security risk assessment process involves various services designed to tackle security challenges, such as internal/ external theft, asset protection, employee protection and safety, vandalism, and other vulnerabilities. 

Physical Security Operations Automation

Some of our security services include intercoms, access control, video camera surveillance, visitor management, employee personal safety, system monitoring, and more. When deciding to upgrade your building’s security systems, consulting with highly skilled professionals before your project begins can make a big difference.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is physical security risk assessment so important?

Security risk assessment is an action that helps reveal gaps in your security system. A weak control system is an easy target for burglary, theft, and vandalism. Once you know the weak points, you can fix them to achieve the highest asset and people protection level.

Linked Security will assess your security system in four stages: Identification, Evaluation, Mitigation, and Prevention.

The physical security assessment cost depends on a few factors. These are whether you need an internal or external security assessment, the number of security systems that need to be examined, the complexity of the projects, and others. That’s why we create custom quotes specific to each situation. 

How Long Does It Take to Conduct a Physical Security System Assessment?
