Development of technical and organizational concepts for appropriate
protection of industrial sites, administrative-buildings, airports, shopping
malls etc.. Starting with an analysis of the existing our propositions for
necessary measures consider only the clients requirements. As neutral
consultants we often act as broker or translator between investor and provider.
Besides all technical solutions rules and procedures concerning security have
to be defined. Company guidelines, rules for security staff as well as for the
average employee concerning all facets of security must be set up and
communicated to obtain awareness for security. Parties responsible for security
and executive board find justification in case of disaster or personal damage.
Company's know-how and personal data have to be protected in an easy to
handle way to make sure security measurements are used. Automated tools, simple
rules and procedures for employees and comfortable restrictions describe the
framework of necessary action. Recommendations follow German Data Protection Act,
Common Criteria for Information Technologie and British Standards.
Our analyses, concepts, planning and recommendations always
comply with the principles of our
10 commandments of security planning
- 1. Determination of security object-tives by risk
The prerequisite for a security concept is the determination of the risk
situation and, on that basis, the definition of security objectives.
- 2. Principle of prevention
The primary objective is to prevent damage before it arises. The necessary
reaction time therefore determines the scope of security measures.
- 3. Early security planning in all phases
Security specifications as early as at the architectural competition
stage enable the seamless integration of security measures into the overall
- 4. Principle of totality and equal validity
The measures must produce an integrated, seamless chain. Control of this
helps prevent contradictions in the classification of measures from the
- 5. Principle of economic viability
In looking at the financial aspects, follow-up costs for staff, maintenance
and possible upgrading must be included in any evaluation.
- 6. Depth as well as breadth in the mix of measures
The utilisation of many security zones next to and within one another
creates a high level of security at a justifiable cost.
- 7. Reduction of physical external contact
Security-relevant areas should be designed with the greatest possible
separability so that they can be isolated from areas of the business which
have general access.
- 8. Principle of consistency
Technical, organisational and staff measures should be coordinated such
that contradictions in the security concept are avoided.
- 9. Principle of acceptance
The measures must be seen as reasonable and necessary by insiders and
outsiders, i.e. they must be accepted.
- 10. Anticipation of developments
Security, too, is a dynamic issue. Future developments both with regard to
the user situation and with regard to risk can be taken into account in
planning by means of option.
