The economic downturn in recent years is but one factor contributing to increasing crime rates, particularly business crimes. Increases in systematic and violent organised crime have led to an unprecedented demand on police and protective security resources and highlighted a requirement for a SMART (Simple, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Bound) approach to the collection, collation and analysis of Business Security Intelligence to develop a security posture that is predictive, with a view to being preventative.
Crest Advisory Africa and Hi-Tech Security Solutions are providing a new training course in 2016 specifically to address Business Security Intelligence. The purpose of this course is to develop an understanding of the holistic Business Security Intelligence landscape, including the collection, collation and interpretation of all applicable and relevant business intelligence, through to its analysis to deliver actionable information to reduce or eliminate the incidence of crime or unacceptable incidents. This approach will ensure that the provision of protective security supports key business objectives by being intelligence-led and effective, economic, responsive and resilient.
The programme will include the following elements:
• What is Business Intelligence?
• How does Business Intelligence relate to risk management?
• Business Security Intelligence and its contribution to the achievement of strategic business objectives.
• Potential sources of information and intelligence.

• Information sharing protocols, policies and procedures.
• Recording of information and intelligence reports.
