Efficient and cost-effective risk management for estates

1 January 2020 Conferences & Events

Hi-Tech Security Solutions will be hosting a full-day Residential Estate Security Conference in Durban on 12 March 2020, focusing on ‘Meeting Estate Security Challenges in 2020 and Beyond’. The event will focus on identifying, understanding and dealing with a variety of challenges modern estates face, highlighting the best technical and process-oriented approaches to streamline estate security and operations.

No matter how advanced technology is or how many experienced guards are on site, security operations still need to be planned, integrated, managed and maintained effectively. But as we apply new technologies to assist in the security function, Kevin Monk, managing director of Stallion Electronic Security, asks why we can’t also use the same technology to assist in the planning and maintenance of the estate’s security and operations.

Kevin will talk about how the capabilities of modern technology and human resources can be integrated to deliver a better security solution, while streamlining the costs. He will discuss a new way of approaching estate security, including the importance of a long-term maintenance contract and key elements that ensure your maintenance contract delivers value throughout its duration.

Understand your risks to manage them effectively

And while we are talking about mitigating risks more efficiently, Kevin van Zyl, managing director of Horizon Risk Management, will be on hand to speak about where one starts. Risk management is a broad field that can involve ensuring your generator has enough diesel to combat Eskom's blackouts, through to ensuring your perimeter is secured and monitored, and also making sure your operational processes adhere to legal standards — and much more.

Vulnerabilities or weaknesses are gaps in a security programme that can be exploited by adversaries to gain unauthorised access to an asset. Vulnerabilities include structural, procedural, electronic, human, and other elements that provide opportunities to attack assets. Kevin will highlight how residential estates can implement multiple controls that empower them to identify the vulnerabilities they face, and mitigate these efficiently and cost effectively.

This commences with a vulnerability assessment and results in a security management plan designed for each estate’s environment, needs and budget. At the end of the presentation, Kevin will ask if your estate has confidence in its security management plan.
