BP Associates’ security consultants help clients implement effective risk management and mitigation structures, policies and strategies. We can help right throughout the process, from identifying the threat, to designing and implementing procedural and physical security measures, through to auditing their effectiveness in mitigating the risks.
Audit and Review
The risks and threats to your organisation are constantly evolving. Our consultants will undertake a comprehensive and independent review of your security policies, structures and processes to ensure they are effective in dealing with the threat. We also conduct physical security surveys of offices, plants and facilities (including oil platforms, mine sites etc.).
The Data Protection Act 1998 places a heavy burden on businesses to manage personal data in accordance with current legislation. BP Associates can provide an independent data protection audit and help you develop a robust data protection policy.
Images captured by CCTV systems are now governed by the Data Protection Act and Data Subjects have a right to such images. Non-compliance with statute can have serious implications to a business.
BP Associates will survey your systems, provide you with appropriate advice and help you formulate a data protection policy to ensure your company is compliant with the legal requirements of the Data Protection Act. Additionally we can deliver training to your staff, design protocol tools and provide an independent audit of the arrangements.
Services may include:
- Initial site audits and compliance tools analysis.
- Drafting of company policy and operational procedures.
- Design and implementation of documentation for subject to access, CCTV tape management, incident logs, visitor access, maintenance reports and control room operator logs.
- Data Protection Act awareness training.
- Continuous audit and policy review programmes.
The security of business IT systems has never been so important. Businesses rely more and more on IT to underpin their activities, and this makes them increasingly vulnerable to threats from hackers, viruses and even their own staff.
Having the correct information at the right time can make the difference between success and failure for your business. Effective security can help you control and secure information from malicious changes and deletions, or from unauthorised disclosure.
Information security is achieved by implementing suitable controls on:
- organisational structures
- software functions
Policy & Procedures
Information security is achieved by implementing a suitable set of controls, including policies, processes, procedures, organisational structures and software and hardware functions.
These controls need to be established, implemented, monitored, reviewed and improved, where necessary, to ensure that the specific security and business objectives of the organisation are met.
