A vulnerability assessment is the process of identifying, quantifying, and prioritizing the vulnerabilities in a system. These assessments may be conducted on behalf of small business facilities or large regional infrastructures.
The assessment should be followed with a vulnerability analysis, where the focus will be on the expected consequences for the object itself and on the primary and secondary consequences for the surrounding environment. It also concerns itself with the possibilities of reducing such consequences and of improving the capacity to manage future incidents.
Our specialists have been involved with vulnerability assessments well before they were formalized within the federal government after the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995. They were involved with the development of these vulnerability assessments for federal buildings and court facilities and also in the vulnerability assessments that followed. These assessments led to significant changes in physical security, security staffing, and security policies.
Armed with this knowledge, along with the resources specifically used in judicial and court security by the United States Marshals Service, the Administrative Office of the US Courts, and best practices and the guidelines from the American Society for Industrial Security, our specialists can assess your facility’s vulnerabilities and devise a plan to improve them within your budget.
