Weaponizing the Security Manager
The vulnerability-landscape in security, criminology, risk, protection and investigation management is changing at lightening speed because of technological development and social issues related to displacement, movement and relocation of people. This shift dictates that the job functions of the practitioners on the ground must change direction and emphasize their attention on skills that are relevant to mitigate or limit the level of collateral damage.
It is not the weapon that causes despair or mayhem – it is the person. Subsequently, the practitioner is a physical security focused professional practitioner. For sure, the practitioner must know what types of technological tools are available and what they are capable of, such as; CCTV, RfiD, GPS, AI and Drones. However, they must rely on the experts to select the right equipment for the project, Furthermore, they may need to rely on covert and overt surveillance technology to obtain reliable information or hard evidence. This may call for a professional that is proficient and an expert in the distinct field.
Conceptional thought is required to comprehend the narrative (big-picture), dissect the situation to plan, recruit the right people, manage, execute and monitor their team of practitioners. The professional manger seeks and compiles the team related to the skill-sets required for the project . The success of a project depends on the people involved which in-turn means the success of a project relies on the skill-sets required, applied and delivered with the right mentality by the practitioners and experts.
Subsequently, the team must report back to the over-sight manager with reliable and all-the-information from the decision-makers on the ground. Security success depends on the level of situational awareness of the decision-makers on the ground and their reaction speed.
To consider the information related to awareness – we require knowledge. When one does not know what to look for – they have no situational awareness and therefore, unable to make decisions. The biggest nightmare is not knowing what is truly going happening on the ground. Consequently, the professional practitioner meets and attends workshops with other like-mined professionals to stock-up on knowledge related to issues happening on the ground
