In order to continue offering solutions that add value to our clients' businesses, we have developed a new service line that complements our lines of business in auditing, consulting, training with general physical security solutions for tourist destinations around the world.
When it comes to physical security situations, many tend to think exclusively of acts of terrorism, theft, kidnapping and other security threats in tourist destinations that have caused not only a loss of reputation and revenue from tourism, but also threaten the long-term sustainability of tourism as an industry.
However, physical security is much more than the prevention of terrorist acts. Data and statistics indicate that less intense but very damaging incidents are more likely to occur in tourist destinations.
Preverisk Group is present in global destinations to help provide physical security solutions to the tourism sector in general and to tourists in particular.
What solutions does Preverisk offer in Physical Security?
The security of the tourism sector depends on its managers and how well prepared its staff is. In addition, it is important to have careful planning aimed at reducing latent threats to people who enjoy holidays and leisure time in a tourist destination. Hotel, excursion and transfer companies will be particularly benefited by the services of auditing, analysis, evaluation and improvement of the security of their facilities, equipment or vehicles, with one of the keys to success being the training of their staff in person or through Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQ's).
What safety areas are covered?
Access controls, secure communication procedures, confidential information controls, information security and use of video surveillance, mail and baggage handling, selection and registration of supplier personnel, cleaning procedures, identification and response to threats, assessment planning, threat analysis and specific threat training, VIP security protocols.
