Operations Centers’ Value for Physical Security
Security is not a “set it and forget it” industry; by nature, it requires constant monitoring and incident management. While physical security often places emphasis on putting boots on the ground, there is significant value in a monitoring center for security operations.
Proof of accountability
Whether your organization provides security services or your company is looking to prove to customers that you take your own facilities’ security seriously, an established security operations center shows customers the extent of your dedication. A monitoring center proves that you take security seriously. Whether it’s property or people that need protection, round-the-clock operations instill confidence in your organization.
Security is more vital than ever, especially considering the numerous upheavals society has experienced this year, and that won’t be changing anytime soon. Establishing an operations center allows your security to be proactive rather than simply reactive.
More efficient workflow
With a large video wall, your security operations center can display a multitude of sources for operators to monitor. These can include CCTV feeds, real time alerts, and other critical information that may require an immediate response. Alongside these vital security features, you can also display dashboards that assist in an efficient workflow. These can include visibility into current reports and priorities or scheduling assistance if you oversee a team of guards. Whatever the data, a video wall allows multiple sources of information to be simultaneously displayed and shared within your operations center space.
Improved safety for your team
A security operations center means that you can monitor not only the safety of your building, but also of your workers who are out in the field. The exchange of real-time information allows guards to quickly send out incident reports or alerts for help and have a timely response from operators within the SOC. Ultimately, the greater visibility of an operations center means that you can mobilize a response to any incident as quickly as possible.
When not dealing with presently unfolding critical events, a security operations center can also perform ongoing risk assessments and adjust incident response plans to ensure that critical events are averted as much as possible.
