The Security Concept- No Other Alternative
Security is not an objective but rather a concept that needs to be implemented for protecting human lives and limiting physical damage to a facility. This conceptual reality must be based on a thorough understanding of who is our enemy, what are his methods of action, and what security measures are present for preventing or neutralizing these threats.
The development of a security plan must be based on a security concept that prioritizes:
Impeding the collection of information
Surgical responses to specific threats
Security should not disturb the routine activities of the facility and work of its employees
The development of a security culture and awareness among all staff
Trained security guards with operational procedures
The development of real intelligence
Security rings which are interdependent and can act outside the critical areas
Strategic surprise of the enemy
Without a clear security concept, a security plan will be impotent when an emergency occurs and put at unnecessary risk its employees and increase the vulnerability level. The security concept will dictate the operational, strategic and procedural components of all the activities we carry in a proactive manner and give us the required human and technical resources to deal with the enemy.
