JCG will create policies and procedures that fit the specific needs and design for any type of residence, space or facility. The most efficient policies and procedures will be established to align with the goals set forth for your safety and security. Resources, devices and measures will be put in place to prevent such things such as unwanted visitors, theft, vandalism, active assailant and many other situations. The measures and countermeasures are put in place for threats both external and internal.
Security policies help to create consistent standards across the organization. In this way, risks are avoided, and penalties are outlined for failure to adhere to the regulations within the policy. A policy also identifies the roles and responsibilities of everyone within the company in ensuring security. Hopefully, a policy will be clear enough and inclusive enough to be easily implemented and followed. It is also important that the policy be flexible enough to encompass and accommodate a wide range of situations and events that could occur.
A security policy is also another way of establishing the importance of security within the organization. A security policy is usually published and includes endorsement by upper management. In this manner upper management provides tacit acknowledgement of security as a company priority. This helps to establish the cooperation of an organization’s personnel.
JCG policies and procedure consist of several factors. The most important factor is that it is usable. A security policy is of no use to an organization or the individuals within an organization if it cannot implement the guidelines or regulations within the policy. Concise, clearly written and as detailed as much as possible in order to provide the information necessary to implement the regulation.
JCG policies and procedures also take into account the existing or implicit rules in use. Business processes evolve over time within organizations as personnel learn more efficient ways of processing information. A security policy should in no way impede or interfere with the business. Rather, it should enhance the process, providing confidence in the security of the day – to – day operations.
Local, state and federal laws are also considered when creating or updating security policies. There are many statutes and laws that govern safety and security and procedures involved. Auditing processes are also put in place to verify compliance, and the punitive actions that may be taken in the event of non-compliance of any of the stipulated regulations.
The interests of employees, clients and the business goals of the company are always considered in a security policies and procedures.
When creating a security policy, it is a good approach to have drafts reviewed by representatives from different departments, such as security, IT managers, legal and human resources personnel and executives. This will create a document that is a representation and addresses the concerns of all interests within the organization.
