Security Assessment Process
Trident’s rigorous assessment process helps ensure your security program is effective. When it comes to client security concerns, our strategy is always to be proactive. While we customize programs to meet your unique needs, our assessment process often includes:
- Analysis of current loss prevention, security, or risk mitigation practices
- Comparison of findings to industry standards
- Identification of vulnerabilities and areas of potential liability
- Oral or written Assessment Report with specific corrective recommendations and implementation plans
- Documentation to support report findings
- Representation of client interest and coordinating vendor selection and equipment integration
- Reassessing security practices to ensure company, industry, and legal compliance
Security Physical Penetration Testing
A significant component of any security assessment is the physical penetration test. This test assesses physical security controls, including doors, windows, locks, fences, gates, security guards, cameras, intrusion systems, electronic access controls, and other security measures. Auditors attempt to thwart security measures during a physical penetration test to gain physical access to restricted areas and identify sensitive data. Our physical testing process often includes, but is not limited to:
- Surveillance and Covert Observation
- Electronic and Physical Barrier Bypass and Exploitation
- Social Engineering and Pretext
- Mining of Sensitive Information
- Network Intrusion
