Premier Risk Solutions (PRS) offers an extensive end-to-end strategy to address your security design and engineering projects. Whether a green field building program or a retrofit of an existing facility, PRS security consulting can supplement any in-house team or allow you to outsource this important role.
Our scope of work offerings in this arena can be accessed by you selecting a menu of these services to suit your specific needs:
As site selection will determine to a great degree, the success of your corporate security program right out of the starting gate, it is imperative that your security department be a powerful stakeholder in the evaluation process. PRS will utilize our proprietary industry-modified FEMA 426 All Hazards methodology, combined with Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), any regulatory requirements and other criteria to engage with your site selection team.
Transitional Risk Assessment
Your existing operation may be expanding into a new space or an entire purpose-built campus. Corporate security should consider a Transitional Risk Assessment that looks at the existing operations, as well as space utilization in the new environment. Unlike a standard risk assessment methodology, PRS will incorporate the Three-D approach to this risk assessment task, examining designation, definition and design and incorporating these important elements into our final report and recommendations.
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
(CPTED) Review and Design
Having performed over 500 large-scale CPTED reviews and designs, PRS staff are very capable of assisting you with new, retrofit or existing building campus reviews or a CPTED design process. With new construction it is best to engage PRS with a project that is in a 0%-10% architectural process. Beyond the 10% mark, most architects will not consider CPTED changes without additional costs to you. Securing our participation early on in the planning process will result in an enhanced design and reduced costs attributed to our recommendations that replace some costly building materials. We see this cost reductions in 95% of our projects. These savings more than offset our fees while enhancing security efforts naturally and winning the corporate security department that very valuable stakeholder seat at the planning table.
Security Design and Engineering
Based on any existing corporate standards, results from a transitional risk assessment and CPTED review, PRS is well-positioned to carry out a security design and engineering process in conjunction with your in-house team, or as outsourced support. Because PRS is not a security systems integrator, nor has any pre-established purchasing program in-place with any equipment vendor, we deliver a clear client advocate centered program to your company.
This service has many options from which to choose, but the program might look like this:
• Preliminary Design based in a review of your design guidelines and any supporting documentation from other phases.
• Establishment of a Functional Specifications document
• Provision of security CAD drawings
• Preparation of a Bid Document Package
• Bid Review and Vendor Selection services
• Project Management and surveillance
• Commissioning & Testing program
• Systems Training and Project Close-out

Move-In Planning and Security
Our experience has proved that in moving from an old operating location to a new one involves considerable risk and requires special planning to mitigate. Computers, files and other confidential data is often improperly identified or left in the hands of a moving company. All of the security paid for throughout the years may all have been wasted if sensitive corporate data goes missing during the move.
PRS can provide comprehensive pre-move planning, special move logistics security and post-move security services to protect your very valuable trade secrets, sensitive data or valuable client information.
Physical Penetration Testing
PRS has investigative specialists who, through social engineering and creativity, attempt to access your organization’s properties through illicit means to test business policies, procedures and practices. Otherwise known as the military term “Red Team Testing” it is intended as an educational, learning piece for the company. Tactics of such personnel include: Pre-Surveillance of a Property, Creation of a Cover Story, Execution of the Pen Test and, ultimately, the Debriefing Report on all activities undertaken in order to attempt to have gained illicit access or gained illicit access. This process will have put to test your organization’s personnel, technologies employed and practices of personnel empowered to enforce your policies. You will learn vulnerabilities to your organization along with recommendations for improvement.
