Security Must Handle an Active Biological Threat by using Security Protocols

ISIO (image)By ISIO | International Security Industry Organization

Security success will depend on the level of situational awareness of the people on the ground (decision-makers) and their reaction speed. Considering the nature of the beast, situational awareness for this pandemic dictates that there are issues of concern that must be addressed and arrested to limit the level of collateral damage.

Security Managers that are using ONLY the standard health related protocols are naive to believe that they are secure. This is an active biological threat whereas the International Security Industry Organization [ISIO] suggests that security protocols must also be considered.

closed circuit television (image)The collateral damage of cv-19 will furthermore produce other threats whereas the SM will be dealing with multiple threats such as new crime related to economic meltdown that will erode the company profits.

Consequently, this is not a one size fits all kind-of-thing. Security Protocols must be stringently followed when purchasing or using technology, equipment, and the layering of manpower by their skillsets. The reasons for such consider the mood and character traits of the population which will be, abnormal to the extreme of an increase in mentally unwell people besides, erratic behaviour of the masses. This is not purely related to customers that would visit a site but also internally amongst the staff. Desperate people will do desperate things.

The major issue is that the Security Managers could be undermined by the Human Resource manager that could use the full budget solely on health-related protocols. The Financial managers must know that the security managers must secure profit protection besides loss prevention. When the doors of the business shut – there are no profits.

Subsequently, the Security Manager must be confident in their presentation to the Human Resource Manager and Financial officer to earn the trust and respect to seriously allocate to the security department the necessary tools to limit collateral damage. The Security Manager would not feel intimidated to present their position because of lack of knowledge, whereas, there are bodies that can provide the easiest and most effective method to comprehend their own loopholes and suggest cost effective methods. Not knowing the protocols in the purchasing and utilization of the technology, equipment or manpower will cost the company dearly.
