Security Operations - protect people, property, and processes
You are entrusted with the security and protection of the people, physical assets, privacy of information at your organization
The responsibilities of a security manager include evaluating risks, putting mitigations in place to lower potential risks, and responding to and documenting incidents. Evaluating the information gained from incidents, and then implementing countermeasures to reduce the threat of another incident from happening again, is also part of the role of a security manager. Thefts, burglaries, assaults, violent incidents, workplace violence, accidents and other urgent or traumatic events are just some of the challenges for which a Security Operations Manager must prepare. It goes far beyond cameras, guns, gates, and guards. They must provide leadership and support to their team and the leaders of the organization. Their job includes physical threat risk assessments, incident reporting and metric analysis, security resource management, and they oversee security staff while ensuring necessary compliance to industry standards.
Modern technology now offers the security operations manager tools and resources to provide timely, relevant and necessary information to help decision makers respond during an incident. It offers mass notification so they can alert people of in danger and how to proceed. It helps manage officer schedules to improve productivity and profitability. It will collect and organize data to help managers ensure compliance and mitigate risks. It is customizable and scalable to grow and provide you with the needs of your organization. It offers virtual reality training for an enhanced experience during an exercise to better prepare for an incident. During a real event, it offers interoperability across various agencies for improved communication.
