Threat & Risk Assessment

  • We use our in depth knowledge of the complex dynamics of the security environment in the country and appreciate that each client has distinctive risk profiles and therefore has varied physical security requirements. We work with various stakeholders to understand the client’s unique security needs and implement appropriate frameworks to protect their people, assets, information and reputation. The process starts with a strategic security threat assessment before developing into an executive security directive. It includes assessing security management, outsourced providers, security operational planning and implementation.
  • VS4 can advise security managers in all areas like guard force or security systems procurement, development of operational processes or testing and assurance.
  • We test existing security measures using a blend of intrusion testing, social engineering and competency reviews to ensure your organisation is as well protected as it should be.
  • All to be in good graphic -VS4 zeros in on potential security threats and reduces surprises by conducting the following assessments: 
    • A detailed review of employee safety and security policy and processes.
    • An evaluation of the use of electronic security and surveillance systems and their applicability, removing any unnecessary duplication.
    • A review of physical security policy and procedural documents in relation to best practices and industry standards.
    • Review and analyse the use of personnel for security, determining best practice options for a balanced approach to staff hours and electronic security.
    • Review the use of fencing, shrubbery, clear zones, security lighting and other barriers. Using and advising on the principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED).
    • Compliance audit against security provisions required by your industry.
    • Analyse your executive travel related protocols, procedures and practices.
