In What the Defendant Can Do Wrong, security management and risk management expert witness Ira Somerson, BCFE, CPP, CSC, writes on discovery and investigation of a Security Program:
Discovery and investigation of a premises security matters should seek to identify:
■ Did Defendant routinely conduct qualitative and quantitative risk assessments?
■ Was the assessment performed using a qualified methodology?
■ Has Defendant determined the operational aspects of a facility and its “inherent” risks?
■ Were qualified persons used in conducting the risk assessment?
■ Can Defendant illustrate changes in their security strategies in response to a continuing risk assessment program.
■ Has Defendant sought in-house or outsourced expert support?
■ Has Defendant ignored the advice of existing security vendors or inside requests for support?
