Infrastructure Sector - National Security Alliance

 

Critical Infrastructure is as diverse as it is expansive, with common threads being the fundamental necessity of business continuity, and the requirement of a level of protection to ensure this continuity.

The National Security Alliance adopts a proactive and responsive approach to managing the security requirements of critical infrastructure.  Consideration is always given to the regulatory environment that our staff operate in, ensuring seamless assimilation and compliance to existing company policies and procedures.

 

Initial and ongoing staff clearance and training is paramount in critical infrastructure environments. National Security Alliance will take the time to thoroughly process all personnel planned for deployment to site to ensure all checks are performed as per company requirements. Company and site inductions will have particular emphasis on compliance. Training matrixes will be formulated in consultation with company representatives; and regular ongoing training sessions scheduled to meet regulatory preconditions.

 

Due to the diversity in the sector, National Security Alliance can provide a variety of security functions dependent on the specific needs of the stakeholders. Examples of security provisions to this sector include: dedicated vehicular patrols to energy and water facilities, static guards to hospitals, escort services on public transport, and access control to communication and network security hubs.
