Policies and procedures, where we can help to identify existing issues and risks in clients’ policies and procedures and develop strategic solutions to manage these effectively.
Training and empowerment, by equipping our colleagues with the very best training and resources, and ensuring they have an understanding of the role they play in securing a location is crucial to maintaining Protect Duty compliance.
Review and assurance, to maintain compliance with Protect Duty for our clients, the security strategy, training and processes we implement are regularly reviewed and analysed, with contingency planning for potential situations assessed against CPNI advice, to deliver incremental improvements and recommendations on measures to minimise or mitigate potential risks.
