ZBeta's mission is to transform the professional security function into a model of organizational excellence. We judge the success of the solutions we deliver for each engagement by these criteria:

Are they reasonable?

  • Are your security measures right-sized for your organization? Are they compatible with basic business mission and organizational culture? Are costs sensible relative to measurable benefit?

Are they functional?

  • Are the fundamental business and risk drivers for physical security defined?  Does each security technology element fulfill a basic functional or operational objective? Do components, equipment and software meet expectations for reliability and function?

Are they scalable & flexible?

  • Are security technology platforms and operations capable of scaling to current and future scope requirements? Are they sufficiently flexible to adapt to potential future business needs and changing risk conditions?

A successful security program manages risk effectively within the context of an organization's culture, business objectives, and resource constraints. ZBeta can lead the development and implementation of a new security program from scratch, or provide fresh perspective and thinking for a topical security program element.

We use a practical, incremental, and road-mapped process to help our clients define a vision for the future of their security program while recognizing and supporting the need to deliver ongoing, day-to-day operational and project services.

  • VULNERABILITY AND RISK ASSESSMENT
  • PROGRAM EVALUATION AND GAP ANALYSIS
  • BUSINESS REQUIREMENTS DEFINITION
  • PLANNING AND STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT
  • TECHNOLOGY EVALUATION AND OPTIMIZATION

Technology and design standards are vehicles for consistency and efficiency, improving delivery of the fundamental tools that a physical security program requires.

BENEFIT OF STANDARDS:

  • Consistency of system deployment & system architecture
  • Optimized functionality of security technology investments
  • More consistent user experience
  • Focused & efficient maintenance and troubleshooting programs
  • Identification of costly or under-performing legacy technology platforms

ZBeta's approach to design standards make them modular and flexible, so that standards data can be utilized in a targeted and pro-active manner, ensuring that each project team member and stakeholder receives the standards information most useful to their function.

  • SITE EVALUATION AND SELECTION STANDARDS
  • ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN STANDARDS FOR SECURITY
  • SYSTEM DESIGN AND ENGINEERING STANDARDS
  • TECHNOLOGY AND EQUIPMENT STANDARDS
  • PROCESS AND PROCEDURE STANDARDS

ZBeta has a track record of success producing and maintaining bid and construction documents at the rigorous pace of today's projects.
