Target hardening is a term that can apply to any building. The idea is to transform the structure to make it look more difficult or unattractive to target. When it comes down to it, there are no buildings that are entirely secure from attack, but there are ways to increase security once you understand how the process works. While each building will provide its own set of challenges, target hardening considers everything from the natural landscape to the number of employees before developing ways to counteract terrorism. Whether your building has received direct threats or you're just looking into how to improve your security, this could very well be the answer you're looking for. We'll look more at how target hardening serves as a way to both prevent attacks and mitigate the damage if they do occur.
With so many things happening around the globe, it’s important to have a good threat and vulnerability management policy in place for your business. That begins with a threat and vulnerability assessment. This entails a team of experts coming to your organization to inspect, review and make a determination on how safe things are. It includes a detailed report on the current layout, how well it functions, any existing processes, countermeasures and vulnerabilities. The threat assessment concludes with cost effective recommendations and solutions that can strengthen current procedures and infrastructure.
