Benefits Of Using A Security Consultant

26 May 2021

There is always a need to have an unbiased and industry experienced voice when you are looking to either review, improve or completely refresh your security solutions within an organisation. If you are thinking that it may be of use to engage a security consultant, it may be the smartest decision to make for your business if the expertise you need is not available within your own organisation.

We have listed eight benefits of working with a security consultant that no other business professional can bring to the table:

A Security Consultant is your resident expert and confidential adviser

A security consultant will be your organisations personal security expert, someone you can confidentially discuss your business operations and requirements with at a high level.


A Security Consultant will identify where risk exists to your people and property

You know your business better than anyone. A security consultant will take the time to understand your business and any risk to your people and property. They will identify and qualify your risk and the best ways to mitigate it.


A Security Consultant will evaluate your existing systems and processes for suitability

A security consultant will evaluate all your existing operating systems and business processes to see if what you have in place is suitable for your current business environment. A review should evaluate building access, mail and communications, emergency management, access control and alarm systems, CCTV and building management systems, as well as any other case-specific variables.


A Security Consultant will qualify the level of exposure the business may face

Once business risk has been identified it needs to be qualified from a financial perspective, this is what your consultant will do for you. Once this has been completed, it is possible to make qualified decisions about risk mitigation strategies. This is where a security consultant’s experience comes into play, they know the repercussions of ill-informed risk strategies and the result of having none at all.


A Security Consultant will recommend the best solution

Good security comes from a combination of systems and processes working in harmony. A truly independent consultant will not recommend a product or service where they receive kickbacks or commissions on their purchase, they will recommend the products and services that will give the best outcome for their client.


A Security Consultant will protect your budget

With knowledge of your business and your potential business risk, a security consultant will protect your bottom line. Expenditure on security is rarely thought of as an investment that will show returns to your company, however through technological efficiencies, not only will you enjoy improvements in security, you can also see your security upgrades pay for themselves over time.


A Security Consultant will ensure you get what you paid for

If you are spending money on new security technologies, a security consultant will ensure that you get what you paid for. Your security consultant will take ownership for signing off on any capital purchases so you can enjoy peace of mind that you’re not being sold inferior, faulty or inappropriate products. This protects your investment and ensures a level of accountability to those charged with undertaking works for you.


A Security Consultant will look after your best interests

Your best interests are the only ones of concern to a security consultant. Having someone else, an expert, do the thinking about your business’ security.

We needed to roll out the new system throughout Scotland, London and Europe which was very challenging. A Plus and their advice and flexibility made this process much easier for the whole project team. The one to one dialogue and personal service has been excellent. We can speak to a familiar voice at any time, morning and night which has exceeded our expectations. Since the project roll out was completed, we have been able to centrally control the physical security of the Government’s Estates seamlessly. The process Is now simpler which has led to better productivity.
