Physical Security Design Consulting

An ideal building or facility protective system:

Defends against
Defeats Aggressors

The primary design objectives are defense (delay and shielding) and detection (sense, assess, and communicate aggression)

The main focus in site design is improving detection, adding delay, and providing defense from some threats through standoff

Minimum Measures for Site Design are:

  • Clear zone - eliminate potential hiding places to improve site visibility
  • Maximize standoff from the outer perimeter and parking areas
  • Eliminate roadways or drives that approach perpendicular to a building
  • Minimize the number of access points to the facility
  • Avoid parking under a facility
  • Provide adequate security lighting
  • Reduce or avoid vantage points

Defense-in-Depth is the preferred method of Security Design.

  • For many threats and tactics the best defense if standoff.
  • In addition, you can minimize risk and increase your chances of success by layering your defense.
  • Each layer presents an opportunity to add detection or delay elements to foil an adversary.
