WHY A RISK ASSESSMENT?
With increasing certainty, corporate and government auditors are implementing requirements or expecting organizations, including banks, other financial institutions, universities and hospitals to conduct security risk assessments on a regular basis. However, many organizations that do perform what they perceive as 'risk assessments' currently utilize an outdated list of physical security threats stored within an Excel spreadsheet that is managed and analyzed manually.
This traditional, time consuming approach is only a vulnerability assessment, and not a true risk assessment, which includes the specific controls and safeguards needed to eliminate security threats, while providing a cost benefit analysis of the associated financial data and a projected Return on Investment (ROI) based on implementation of the selected security controls.
If your department or staff is responsible for satisfying regulators, providing value added physical security data internally and ultimately protecting EVERYONE at a physical location from harm and security threats, then automated risk assessment is the tool of choice.

WHAT A RISK ASSESSMENT CAN DO FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION
Gordon Security Solutions (GSS) offers a comprehensive risk assessment, through affordable and easy- to-use software tools, that automate the surveying, data collection, analysis and reporting for physical security threat assessments and the management of these security risks.
A risk assessment is a process used to identify what controls are needed to protect your critical or sensitive assets adequately as well as cost effectively. Our risk assessment software determines and quantifies risk by analyzing the relationships between: assets value, potential threats to these assets, the vulnerabilities that would allow the threats to occur, the types of losses that the threats could cause, and then most critically, safeguards that would reduce loss or eliminate threats.
The true value of an automated risk assessment is that our automated tool cuts down your organization's risk analysis time commitment by 70% when compared with a manual, spreadsheet-driven analysis. Additionally, users of our risk assessment products have the flexibility to conduct risk analysis within an organization in a variety of ways: vulnerability assessment only, risk assessment only, vulnerability and risk assessment combined, with or without financial data, and with or without ROI data.
