We agreed a set process with the client that combined a benchmarking and auditing process which aligned with the contractual requirements of the security vendor and best practices standards (at the strategic and tactical level).
We assigned a project security manager to oversee engagement with the security vendor and ensure that appropriate access was negotiated so that the programme could move forward.
A seasoned security professional conducted a series of high-level interviews with the security vendor’s senior leaders to explore their existing strategy and assess its suitability to the client’s needs. A series of industry experts were also assigned to review and assess the suitability of all areas of tactical and operational security put into place by this security vendor.
With this information, a report was constructed which detailed and compared the strategic and tactical needs of the client versus the provisions which had been put into place by this security vendor. This report also compared the current security implementation versus their contractual KPIs.
