Physical protection system improvement intervention for
top end estate

Physical Risk was engaged by a top-end lifestyle Estate to assess and advise on the health of their physical protection system to ensure the Estate is suitably protected against prevailing security threats.


Physical Risk's engagement response, after performing a comprehensive Security Risk Assessment, was structured to address all the sub-components of a physical protection system (PPS), namely:

  • Deterrence-, detection-, and response considerations


Over and above the PPS sub-component assessment, we thought it comprehensive to advise the Estate on the following considerations to ensure the ingredients, which make up an effective security portfolio, had been raised for their consideration:

  1. Integration of PPS sub-components to optimise the advantage of multiple security safeguards against common physical security threats.
  2. The value of a comprehensive security design specification to serve the best interest of the Estate in terms of technical specifications, quality of craftsmanship, quality of products installed, warranties and guarantees, commissioning and testing, amongst other.
  3. Performance based supplier service level agreements (installer & guarding vendors) to protect the Estate's best interest and effectively transfer risk, i.e. realising a return on security program investment/expense, the majority of which is a recurring cost of business.
  4. Comprehensive maintenance agreements to cover post-installation life span of security technology and other infra-structure improvements.
