When it comes to the security initiatives impacting corporate security teams in the new normal, identifying potential risks to risk mitigation plans has included helping to fill gaps where visibility is increasingly limited. This is where real-time data and analytics shine.
Real-time data and analytics are crucial indicators to the health of one’s risk mitigation plan for overall business continuity. Real-time data and analytics have not only provided immediate insights onto guard activity and incident status, but have aided in centralizing security initiatives.
Let’s examine how real-time technology provides stronger accountability for end-users with fully configurable dashboards and actionable insights to mitigate risk.
Centralizing Security Initiatives with Real-Time Data
When it comes to the protection of security teams, insights on the security team’s activities, including incidents encountered, are essential for situational awareness. Real-time data and analytics have allowed organizations to move beyond basic preparation for future threats toward more proactive and reliable security protocols.
When it comes to the protection of people, property, and assets, insights on the security team’s activities, including incidents encountered, are essential for situational awareness. Real-time data and analytics have allowed organizations to move beyond basic preparation for future threats toward more proactive and reliable security protocols.
This has meant stronger access control for third-party and visitor management, insights and visibility on remote security teams, and stronger training for security guards interacting in critical situations.
Technology Proves to Enhance Risk Mitigation Strategies
The insights drawn from the security team on the ground have provided much needed visibility; from collecting data for stronger shift guidance to providing insights on security guard activity, real-time data collection has helped security teams establish best-practices to mitigate at-risk areas. Without this data collection, organizations would have missed-the-mark in obtaining key information regarding essential business factors pertinent to stakeholders.
Ultimately, efficient data gathering has led to solid insights, which are currently being used to create effective operational strategies for future proofing risk mitigation response plans against new and unknown threats.
What a Real-Time Dashboard Can Provide Corporate Security End-Users
Security professionals managing the implementation of their security programs are heavily dependent – and reliant – on consistent and clear communications with visibility into their daily security operations.
Real-Time reporting has provided stronger visibility on current patterns and trends occurring on sites and has aided in anomaly identification with increased situational awareness.
Fully customizable real-time dashboards have provided security teams with a unified view of all security activities throughout multiple sites supported with true, actionable insights. Plus, with the ownership of data, there are no risks to data leaks, enabling better benchmarks on all sites.
Stronger Accountability with Technology
With stronger business intelligence, corporate security executives have leverage centralized data gathered by security teams on the ground and have utilized effective communication tactics critical to normal operating environments.
By quickening time-consuming practices, security professionals have learned to minimize delays in data collection and improve visibility for remote and newly-hired contract security guards.
