There are a number of standard security requirements recognised in New Zealand, ISO31000 being the recognised model.
The New Zealand government have over the last two years introduced a required security standard called the ‘Protective Security Requirements’ (PSR). The PSR Framework outlines the Government’s expectations for managing personnel, physical and information security. It is a framework designed to help manage business risks and assure continuity of service delivery. The PSR clearly sets out what agencies must and should consider to ensure they are managing security effectively and provides pathways for effectively protecting people, information and assets.
The PSR provides a policy framework based on four pillars:
Following the New Zealand Protective Security Requirements (PSR) framework will assist organisations to:
- identify their individual levels of security risk tolerance
- achieve the requirements for protective security
- develop an appropriate security culture to securely and effectively meet their business goals
Whilst the PSR standard is a mandatory requirement for government agencies, any private sector organisation that seeks to protect its people, information and assets is encouraged to adhere to the same requirements.
SECURITY AND RISK – OMEGA
Omega Investigations can provide security services to help better protect buildings, assets and persons whenever the need arises. This does not mean, however, that the company’s role is limited to immediate protection. Security investigation entails the assessment of threats and risks to the client, along with reviewing all the current security measures to test how they will fare during an attack.
Every system needs a stern challenge to instill confidence in it. Security needs to keep up with whatever potential attackers will be doing to defend against anything that can be thrown at them. Omega Investigations can find those weaknesses and advice on the best measures that companies can employ to fix them.
Security investigations that delve into threat assessment have prevention as their main goal. The trained professionals at Omega Investigations provide a step-by step methodology to help businesses identify potential threats, and how to respond to them appropriately. The threat assessment isn’t an arbitrary procedure; it focuses on fact evaluation and the behaviour of people in a given situation.
The agency’s consultants use the facts of every case to determine whether there is a reason to think there is a threat and how to act in a situation wherein the threat becomes action. The company readily collaborates with partners in order to better minimise and manage an impending threat.
Omega’s threat assessment process is focused on evaluation of facts and evidence of behavior in a definite situation. In situations, which become the focal point of a threat assessment investigation, Omega gathers information, assesses facts and makes a determination as to whether you or your businesses is really under threat. If the inquiry indicates that there is a risk of violence, Omega collaborates with others for developing and implementing a plan in order to reduce or manage the threat.
If someone’s words, actions, or writing makes you feel threatened or if you are concerned about your employee’s wellbeing, you should never hesitate to give us a call. We offer threat assessment investigations.
Though not as urgent as threat assessments, risk assessments still have a significant role in ensuring that businesses and employees operate under safe working parameters. Omega Investigations can probe the risk assessment of a company, which includes taking note of situations and incidents that may lead to injury, asset loss, or death.
Most accidents are simple results of risks that came to their logical conclusion without the people responsible taking effective measure to control and prevent the worst case scenario. All people are protected under the right to work in the safest conditions possible; failing to ensure that may cost businesses more than what they initially lost in an accident.
Nothing is without risk, but that does not mean companies need to live with them. Our security consultants look into the security of any given company or business to find what and from where risks may come. The importance of security applies to every kind of business, regardless of its industry, location, or plane of reality.
Omega Investigations will provide expert advice on security investigation for safeguarding assets, along with protecting property and ensuring the safety of staff. This advice comes from seasoned professionals who have gathered experienced from the fields of New Zealand and the United Kingdom; they are the best at what they do, and speak with authority.
