Security Master Planning

The true value of a physical security program can often be difficult to assess.  Typically viewed as either a tool for regulatory compliance or as a vehicle for the mitigation of risk, it is perceived by many executive decision makers as an unavoidable expense.

Viewed in the proper light, an organization’s physical security program is understood to be much more than a cost center.  A successful security program must support the mission of the institution that it serves with relevant metrics that are aligned to the company’s goals and objectives.  Today’s leading organizations, particularly in the Healthcare and Education sectors, cannot afford to undervalue or overlook the role of security when considering their customer base and services.

Exante360 industry certified experts have a long history of working with clients that have recognized the critical importance of their physical security program as a contributing factor to achieving their strategic goals.  Our Security Master Planning projects incorporate efficient and innovative recommendations that further the development of system-wide security guidelines with a focus on maximizing the effective use of an organization’s existing resources and creating a logical roadmap for future design, new construction, and renovations.

Policy Review & Development
Technology Evaluation & Implementation

Physical Security
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)

Effective security design is the product of a well thought-out holistic approach.  Solutions based on only one design concept, such as technology systems, rarely offer the best value or provide the most effective results.

Exante360’s security consultants and designers have been trained and are encouraged to think outside the traditional guards, gates, and systems archetype.  Today’s most successful security designs include the concepts of Defensible Space, Territoriality, Natural Surveillance, Lighting, and Landscaping.

Security Technology and Construction Management

The successful design of your construction project is dependent on every design team element staying in harmony with all related disciplines.  From employing the latest in project management and file sharing technologies to the use of industry standard AutoCAD and BIM tools, Exante360 will seamlessly integrate into your design team and contribute to the elegant success of your project.

Our experience in the construction industry brings to your project an in-depth and thorough understanding of all the phases of design.  We will be in sync with the rest of the design team from Schematics through Construction Documents.  We offer expert Bid Assistance and Construction Administration services to ensure a trouble free implementation of your design.

Technology Implementation

Today’s security technology is ever-changing.  Advancements in connectivity methods, communications protocols, software development standards, and distributed processing capabilities are all being leveraged for security technology purposes.  Tempering market pressures to adopt every shiny new thing with a measure of “just because we can do something doesn’t mean it’s a good idea” requires the experience to stay focused on the client’s security objectives.  Exante360 brings the right combination of technical acumen and dedication to sound security practices to every project we design.

Security systems do not operate in a vacuum.  Effective implementation of security technology requires an in-depth understanding of how all the sub-systems and components are to work together to provide the user with immediate situational awareness and reliable command and control of all countermeasures.  Monitoring alarms, viewing and controlling cameras, and controlling door hardware all simultaneously during an emergency situation requires a system that was designed with intuitive simplicity in mind.

From the strategic planning and design of a Security Operations Center (SOC) to the development of a migration path for analog to IP based cameras, Exante360 has the expertise and experience required to do it right the first time.  We are driven to implement the right technological solution to achieve your project’s stated goals.

Risk Management
Threat and Vulnerability Assessments

Many security industry experts agree that the extent of formal regulatory requirements affecting healthcare organizations will continue to grow.  This notion is evident in the revised CA Health & Safety Code Sections 1257.7 and 1257.8 which are revisions to the Code, passed in July 2009 as AB1083, that became enforceable as of July 1, 2010.

Exante360 professionals provide 3rd party audits for organizations to measure compliance with the requirements of CA H&S 1257.7 & 1257.8.  These audits include robust evaluation and reporting on the staff training and organizational practices that healthcare facilities employ to detect, deter, mitigate, control, and report incidents of aggressive and violent behavior.

A professional Threat and Vulnerability Assessment (TVA) is one of the first, and most critical, steps an organization must accomplish before designing and deploying security mitigation strategies.  The goal of a TVA is to identify potential threats against your organization, the assets that could be compromised by those threats, and the vulnerabilities that affect the protection of those assets.

Exante360’s expert staff is experienced in determining where threats against your organization might come from.  Sources of threats that must be examined include Social, Technological, Environmental, and Political.  Vulnerabilities might include the socioeconomic condition of your facility’s neighborhood, ineffective security policies and procedures, dishonest employees, lack of clearly defined defensible space, or poor visibility of your assets.

Rapid change is happening, not only in security techniques and technologies, but in business and life itself.  Globalization, information technology, instant communications, business partners, and mergers and acquisitions all bring with them assets, threats, and vulnerabilities that may have been previously unknown to your organization. A thorough TVA will ensure you understand your security posture and have designed a clear path toward mitigation of your risks.

Protecting an organization’s assets is a daunting task, but beginning the process with a professional Threat and Vulnerability Assessment from Exante360 will make the task manageable and provide clear direction for the deployment of systems and other countermeasures.
