The embedded security management service provides a senior consultant (or in some cases multiple consultants) who act as security management for the client; the security manager is located at the clients discretion and actively manages the security operations in accordance with pre-identified deliverables.
This service is often provided in extreme environments where it may not be feasible to use internal staff as it removes the issues associated with salary, line management reporting, travel logistics and surge capabilities to support incident management.
The embedded security manager identifies the policies and manages the procedures to protect the organisation and its assets from the range of identified security risks. The Security Consultant/s sets out clear procedures and policies using the recommendations of the Site Survey/Risk Assessment and manages in-country response to crises.
The duration of the position is dependent on the life cycle of the project and can be extended as required.
