Security staff training is a critical part of any firm’s security and risk management programs. Properly trained staff will reduce and quite possibly eliminate the liability risks for security, safety and protect the reputation of a person or company. A poorly trained staff will actually in most cases increase your liability and diminish your or the firm’s reputation.
If you have an existing security program, or are starting a new one, you will need training for the security staff.

• Do you have a qualified instructor to assist you?
If you do not know the answers to some or all of the above questions, you really need to consider bringing in someone to help you through this process.
