The steps to a successful security perimeter

Planning, planning, planning

Poor planning equals poor performance. The key to any effective perimeter security project is to set aside enough time and expertise for planning.

Assess the threat

The obvious starting point is to assess the threats you want to protect against. How skilled are those aiming to gain entry likely to be? How can they damage your business?

Business as usual

It is vital to consider the general day-to-day purpose of the site. Perimeter security must enable and not be detrimental to the running of the business. Find out who the key stakeholders are and help them buy into the proposed measures.

Get as much advice as possible

Helpful advice and guidance can be obtained from various government bodies and respected third parties, such as the CPNI, Secured by Design, and the LPCB.

Integrate with other security measures

Make sure that your perimeter security system can be integrated with other security measures, such as access control and CCTV. Well-integrated systems should work together and ‘talk’ to each other to provide extensive cover.

Maintain your security

A formal maintenance and repair schedule helps achieve optimum product performance and functionality to the designed specification, throughout its service life.
