Security Procedures

International Trade Council approved suppliers are able to provide your business with security policy and procedure development, threat assessment, protective strategies and personalized security solutions.

Certified security professionals will support you in protecting your assets, securing your locations, and developing your security policies and programs so that you can prevent the unwelcome intrusion of criminal acts. Security expert witnesses are also available to provide impartial analysis for case qualification, strategy development, and qualified testimony, assisting you to be victorious in your security-related litigation.

Security Administration and Management

The International Trade Council can provide assistance in identifying, organizing, staffing, and training security forces, guiding you through planning, direction, control, implementation, and budgeting for a successful security operation.

Security Assessments

What are your dangers and weaknesses? You may think you have identified them all…until you receive the results from a complete assessment of your security program.

Some services on offer include:

  • Crime Risk Analysis
  • Foreseeability Studies
  • Security Surveys
  • Threat Identifications
  • Vulnerability Assessments

Security Awareness and Education

One of the most critical components for a strong security program is to ensure that your staff, workforce, tenants, even customers are educated and aware of potential risks and protection measures. The Council can provide training programs customized to your organization’s physical and intangible risks.

Crime Prevention

Learn how you exactly how you can decrease the risk of crime in and around your organization through technology, analyses, training, and more. The price of prevention is far less than those of litigation, loss of property, or even loss of life.

Emergency Response and Crisis Management

Developing these critical plans (prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery) before you need to put them into action is one of the best investments you can make for your business and your people. Advisors from the International Trade Council are available to help you identify potential risks, and then help you outline your response procedures, and implement your emergency recovery plans, getting your team positioned for fast action should a situation arise.

Expert Witness Testimony

Each security litigation case is noticeably different and involves complex issues that may be difficult to interpret. In order to adequately support your case, extensive research of information and documents must be conducted. Technical issues such as access control, CCTV, and security systems may also be reviewed. These are time-consuming activities that can be performed best by a security expert like the ones at the International Trade Council.

The International Trade Council offers security professionals that have many years’ experience in the law enforcement and security field.

Expert testimony services include:

  • The progress of deposition questions for security experts, management, as well as security employees.
  • A review and analysis of reports, statements, and depositions.
  • The research into discovery documents.
  • Court testimony and documentation needed for depositions, mediations, arbitrations, and trials.
  • The formation of charts, graphs, photographs, and models to be used as trial demonstrations.
  • Comprehensive and thorough written reports with thoughts and conclusions.

Security Lighting Surveys

Lighting is the most efficient and cost effective security feature available to deter crime and reduce the fear of crime. Many inadequate security lawsuits involving parking lots cite insufficient lighting as a major factor.

Consultants are available to conduct a security survey to support you in complying with these updated requirements.

These services are available at a discount to members of the International Trade Council.
