Physical Security

Security Preparedness

physical securityBusinesses, universities, healthcare providers, aviation companies and many other types of service providers have an obligation to safeguard the physical security of their employees, students, and customers from those intent on doing harm. Individual acts of violence, terrorist attacks, property damage, and sexual abuse are all examples of unfortunate realities in today’s society that security departments must plan for and address. In the case of universities, they have a legal requirement to disclose all violent crime that occurs on or around their campuses and to have a working emergency notification solution in case of physical security threats.
MissionMode partners with security managers across industries by providing the security preparedness tools they need to quickly and easily communicate critical information, share timely data and photos from impacted locations, and implement incident management procedures for speedy issue resolution of physical security-related incidents.

Primary Applications

When it comes to physical security, you can’t be too prepared. MissionMode Situation Center Suite can help your team manage a wide variety of potential security threats. Whether you simply need to reach out to employees to ensure their safety or to exchange timely information and photos with security personnel on location, MissionMode tools can help.

Some of the primary security applications include:
Employee Safety – Every organization has an obligation to ensure the safety and security of their staff. In the event of localized physical security threats, the goal is to quickly locate all employees, receive confirmation of their safety and supply information as the situation unfolds.
Interactive Field Communications – As a security situation unfolds, sharing field information with geographically dispersed decision-makers can help speed reaction time and incident resolution. MissionMode has a unique solution to support this application.
Facilities – Physical damage due to a security breach at an individual location needs to be communicated and can impact scheduling and operations. MissionMode can help your security and facilities management teams communicate with employees about facilities safety and implement recovery plans.
Evacuation/Relocation – At times, physical security concerns can be so extreme that evacuation or temporary relocation of facilities is required. This requires significant coordination, planning and accurate communications.
