Working practices of security consultants at SRS Security
Before, during, and after. A security consultant’s working methods do not only extend to when an unforeseen and security-threatening event occurs. Preparedness before and evaluation afterwards is equally important. Below we elaborate in more detail the security consultant’s responsibilities at SRS.
The goal of a security consultant is to contribute to your success
The focus of all types of security work is to secure the core business, that is, protect the organisation’s most important assets. They so called protection values and can be, for example, personnel, brand, information, and physical objects. Threats to protection values can be long-term, short-term, or sudden. Therefore, protection must consist of situational and flexible security solutions.
The security consultants most crucial task is to give their client the greatest possible freedom of movement, action and thus increased opportunities. Increased opportunities are achieved through resilience and preparedness regarding sudden, undesirable events. A resilient organisation can entirely focus on its core business, knowing that unwanted events or incidents will be taken care of in an effective way. A security consultant must, therefore, have the ability to work in different time perspectives, as well as to understand the interaction between strategic orientation and operational solutions in the client’s specific context. Based on solid methodology using Security Risk Management, our security consultants deliver just that.
Way of working
Identification, prevention and management of risks and security threats, stemming from a holistic approach, considering all security-related risks, from physical to personal and cyber; this is the basis of effective security work. The security consultant’s task is to ensure comprehensive solutions based on components that reinforce each other and provide adequate protection.
The first step in all security missions is information gathering. Based on interviews, observations and other compilation of data, the security consultant ensures in-depth understanding of the client’s organisation in terms of key assets, as well as threat and risk appetite.
The security consultant takes the client needs and best practice, with Security Risk Management in mind, and use this to develop practical measures tailored to the client’s strategy and budget possibilities. The security measures are designed to complement each other at the same time as they act individually, all in order to protect the most important assets.
