A REVOLUTIONARY SECURITY APP FOR A DANGEROUS WORLD

Push for SafetyTM app

Push for SafetyTM app

The world becomes a more dangerous place every day, it seems. Threats to businesses and other organizations can come from within and without. Natural disasters and spree-shooters from the outside, safety hazards and disgruntled personnel from the inside, are just a few examples.

Workers’ compensation claims for workplace accidents average $22,800, according to an insurance industry safety index from 2006. How much might that figure have increased since then? Organizations need to keep on top of internal safety hazards to keep costs down and workers safe.

Taking Advantage of a Networked World

During the past two years, Sunstates Security has been developing the Push for SafetyTM smartphone app. The app is designed to help avert emergency situations, using the power of community.

The program empowers members of the organization to communicate quickly and discreetly with security personnel. It is based on the principle: “If you see something, say something.” No organization should rely solely on a handful of security professionals. Users who install the app on their smartphones can alert security to any sort of problem, from suspicious behavior to safety hazards.

The Push for Safety app is gaining momentum in:
• Houses of worship
• Education
• Gated communities
• Large corporate and industrial campuses

With many people coming and going at all times, organizations like these are among the most vulnerable—and the most likely to benefit from the app.

Security personnel can also send push notifications of emergencies in progress with instructions on what to do. The Push for Safety app puts all members of an organization in direct contact with security personnel.

Wi-Fi Is the Key

The app’s Wi-Fi capability allows it to send messages worldwide via the internet. In major threat situations, authorities can disable the cellular network to prevent things like bomb-detonation triggers sent via cell phone. The Push for Safety app operates even under those conditions. Most large organizations favor email and Public Address for communicating with members; however, emails are too slow for emergency situations, and suspects on the premises can hear PA messages.

Security and Safety

A large portion of development focused on security, protecting not only users’ privacy, but also the organization’s secure messages. The key was to balance encryption with versatility and usability.

Users can send tips and receive messages from anywhere they have a Wi-Fi or internet connection, and all messages are encrypted. Security personnel will receive the sender’s exact location and respond accordingly, communicating seamlessly with the user whenever necessary.

“Any security program’s primary focus should be communication,” says Glenn Burrell, President of Sunstates Security. Proactive prevention is worth more than cure. By getting everyone involved, security services gain many more eyes on the ground.

“Warnings to security can point out safety hazards, prevent bullying or other dangerous situations,” Burrell says, “but it all comes back to communication. We want to empower every member of the organization and give them a proactive role.”

HOW TO BALANCE OPENNESS AND SECURITY IN FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS

without comments

On May 3, 2015, in Garland, Texas, two gunmen opened fire upon attendees of a controversial event displaying caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed.

Security in Faith-Based Organizations

Security in Faith-Based Organizations

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack. Although no direct link to ISIS has been proven, there is no question that terrorists worldwide are bringing 

their brand of fanatic violence to U.S. shores.

The world is becoming ever more dangerous, and few entities elicit greater threats than religious organizations. This puts faith-based organizations in the crosshairs of all sorts with axes to grind. But how can an organization with open doors be secured?

Trends in Security Threats

Terrorist threats; spree-shooters in schools, shopping malls and college campuses; and even random vandalism and theft all contribute to the need for increased security.

Faith-based organizations are turning more and more toward security services to protect their property and members, but often find their purpose and mission at odds with providing real security. Funds for faith-based organizations come primarily from the members, from the congregation, and these funds are expected to support education, outreach and/or worship. Nevertheless, for many large organizations, spending a portion of those funds on security has become necessary.

Real-World Security Solutions

Unfortunately, security breaches typically provide the biggest motivator to engage security services—after something bad has happened. A proactive approach is far more cost-effective than dealing with the aftershocks of a tragedy.

But prevention is harder to justify in budget discussions. People don’t see the benefits when security does its job. The security team can’t quantify how many incidents of vandalism, theft or violence are prevented, which makes it difficult to divert funds from a church’s youth programs or community ministry to security.

Despite these challenges, Sunstates Security offers these best practices for protecting large faith-based organizations, based on decades of experience securing these unique communities.

  • Partnerships. Close working relationships with both the security team and local law enforcement is key to security. Everyone working together is the best way to protect the organization and its members.
  • Emergency action plans. Organizations should develop an emergency action plan before the unthinkable happens. Members should know what to do in the event of a crisis, where to go, who to call, how to get to safety. Ideally, the plan should be developed with a security partner and law enforcement.
  • Testing and assessment. An emergency action plan is most valuable if it’s tested, assessed and refined. This means planning, table-top exercises and drills to ensure that a plan that looks good on paper actually works in the real world. Preparedness saves lives during emergency situations.
  • Education. The more that organizations can educate members about security, the more everyone will be on board. Posters, notifications, letters, notes in the weekly bulletin, etc., can all help raise awareness. An attitude of, “If you see something, say something,” empowers members to contribute to the safety and security of the community.
  • Mass notification. The technological age has created many ways to communicate quickly with large numbers of people. Email and social media are acceptable—if often slow, maybe too slow in emergency situations—ways to accomplish this. Sunstates’ new Push for SafetyTM app puts members in direct contact with security personnel. Users can report suspicious activity, emergencies, or even potential safety hazards, and security services can quickly and efficiently notify everyone in the organization in an emergency.

These best practices apply not only to faith-based organizations, but also to any organization that is, by its very nature, an open environment, including schools, college campuses, shopping malls, etc.

PANDEMIC PREPAREDNESS: IS YOUR ORGANIZATION READY?

without comments

Pandemic Preparedness

Pandemic Preparedness

The arrival of the Ebola virus to U.S. shores has revealed a number of chinks in the armor of disease control preparedness. While the epidemic was raging in West Africa, Americans generally gave it little thought, nursing only vague fears that the virus would hop the Atlantic Ocean and find new hosts here. But when it did, we found ourselves unprepared at almost every level.

A phenomenon like Ebola (or the Spanish flu of a century ago, or the bird flu, or the regular flu season) is not just a public health issue; it is also a security issue and a business continuity issue.

What happens to an organization in the short term when half of its employees stay home sick? What happens if employees bring their contagion to work and infect more employees? Who is going to guard your assets if your entire security staff is ill? How do you mitigate the long-term damage of having your business effectively put out of commission until the illness passes?

Do you have a plan in place to mitigate the damage of a pandemic to your organization?

A Unique Security Challenge

Sunstates works with a number of large, faith-based organizations in Dallas, where the first U.S. cases of Ebola occurred. Such organizations have unique security risks, in that their open-door policies and large gatherings could put thousands at risk if an infected individual sought solace there.

Sunstates recognized the potential catastrophe and, having done extensive research already, offered swift guidance for pandemic response to Dallas clients. Sharing this information provided tremendous peace of mind and allowed for adaptation to their own business continuity plans.

Glenn Burrell, President of Sunstates Security, says, “Business continuity comes from having the ability to backfill personnel if they are taken out of action.” For instance, one of the ways Sunstates handles this is with the Sunstates Mutual Aid Rapid Response Team (SMARRT). These specially trained and equipped team members are ready for rapid deployment at a moment’s notice to fill such personnel gaps and provide security.

The keys to maintaining continuity in your business in the event of a pandemic or other emergency include the following:

·       Cross-training personnel

·       Resource depth to bring in additional personnel, as needed

·       Top-down commitment to the business continuity process

·       Regular re-evaluation of procedures, modifying as necessary in the face of changing circumstances

·       Live and tabletop drills simulating emergency situations

Sunstates Security has been helping clients create customized emergency and business continuity plans since 1998, including pandemic contingencies. Contact us today to find out how we can help you.

LOADING DOCK SECURITY—ARE YOU LEAVING THE BACK DOOR OPEN?

without comments

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-warehouse-loading-dock-blue-truck-image35206193In September 2008, thieves broke into an Alltel Communications warehouse in Fort Smith, Ark., via four of its loading docks. The intruders disabled the alarm and surveillance systems before helping themselves to four tractor-trailers loaded with an estimated $10 million worth of cell phones.

Furthermore, threats can go beyond theft.

In August 1982, Leonard Avery entered an IBM plant in North Carolina carrying a Thompson submachine gun, where he went on a shooting spree that left one employee dead. He came in through the unsecured loading dock.

Would you leave the back door to your house open while locking the front one? Probably not. Nevertheless, loading docks represent exactly that—a back door that is often left open in the hustle and bustle of normal business operation.

The Dangers Go Beyond Physical Security

Far less dangerous but far more prevalent is theft via the loading dock. The nature of the shipping industry often results in shipments and pickup drivers coming and going at all hours. Cybercriminals know that it’s much easier to have their victims hand something over than it is to sneak in and steal something. Today’s practice of brokering shipments makes this method of theft increasingly easy.

Many suppliers post loads on the Internet for pickup, and carriers bid on or schedule loads through these listings. Carriers receive the information they need to pick up the loads and then come to the facility. Sometimes, thieves will steal the identity of a legitimate carrier and use that to accept the brokered load via the Internet. They then arrive at the warehouse with the necessary information to pick up the load and drive away.

Loading docks are also the perfect place for employees to walk out with company property, or to facilitate theft by propping open doors or otherwise giving accomplices warehouse access.

Balancing Daily Business with Real Security

Insecurity at any loading dock results from several competing needs. Trash must go out. Supplies must come in. Shipments must go out. Employees and vendors come and go. It can be a hectic, volatile environment, one that requires a diligent balancing act.

Richard Tesauro, Vice-President of Security at NFI, a transportation and logistics company based in New Jersey, says that lax procedures or enforcement creates opportunities for bad things to happen. Based on his experience at NFI and 28 years with the New Jersey State Police, he offers a variety of measures that organizations can take to secure their loading dock areas.

  • Record truck and driver identification—driver’s license, identification, license plates, phone numbers. Make sure they are who they say they are, and verify their contact information.
  • If possible, use your own carrier or one third-party carrier. Having a consistent system in place reduces the chance of theft. Familiarity with carriers can help alert you when anything is amiss.
  • Use a Dock Lock System, where a hook locks onto the ICC bumper at the back of the trailer. Designed as a safety mechanism, it can also serve as a security feature. Until released from the inside (by someone at the facility), the trailer can’t be pulled from the dock door.
  • All personnel or man doors should be closed, locked and alarmed, 24 hours a day, with a limited number of doors designation for entry and exit. Limit the ease of people walking in and out.
  • When not in use, all dock doors should remain closed, latched and have a padlock attached through the latch.
  • The driver’s entrance at the Shipping and Receiving office should be separated from the warehouse floor by a fence to limit drivers’ access to the warehouse. Drivers should only be allowed access to dock area under escort.
  • Install interior and exterior cameras for surveillance of all doors, drivers and workers.
  • Maintain strict supervision and oversight. All the security measures in the world are useless if not supported and followed by every level of the organization, from top to bottom.
  • Perform security audits of loading dock procedures to identify and correct weaknesses.
  • If loaded trailers are left in an unsecured yard, apply kingpin locks to prevent anyone from hooking up to the trailer and driving away.

BUCKING THE TRENDS—GROWTH AND EMPLOYEE RETENTION IN A VOLATILE INDUSTRY

without comments

Sunstates places great value on employee recognition and client partnerships.

The security industry has long been one of mergers and acquisitions, with larger firms swallowing up their smaller competitors. Industry consolidation has been the norm for decades. Comparatively small companies are finding competition more and more difficult.

In spite of this trend, Sunstates Security has achieved phenomenal organic growth throughout the 15 years of its existence. With average annual growth of more than 20%, the company has almost doubled in size in the past four years.

The Right Person for the Right Job

One of the ways that Sunstates has been able to achieve such phenomenal growth is by retaining talent, not only management, but also top-quality security officers.

The key to finding and retaining quality officers and support staff is screening applicants thoroughly. Sunstates has launched a state-of-the-art vetting program that allows applicants to apply online. Application questions establish personality traits, which are then used to assign applicants to the positions for which they are best suited.

A high proportion of Sunstates employees have been with the company longer than five years, many of them more than 10 years.

Sunstates President Glenn Burrell says, “We treat employees like we treat customers—with respect and a positive, professional attitude. We’re planning for the future,” Burrell says. “I want people to stay with us for 10 years or more, not just to get through next week.”

Professional Respect and Attitude

After an auditor recently visited the Sunstates offices, her firm offered a tremendous compliment: “Great job to all of you for treating her according to Sunstates’ company morals: professional respect and attitude.” She departed feeling how Sunstates Security wants everyone to feel – from the UPS driver, to security officers, to the client – that they feel better about Sunstates than when they arrived.

Burrell credits this philosophy with Sunstates’ outstanding client retention rate, which exceeds 95%. This philosophy also allowed them to beat employee retention goals last year. In fact, the company has reduced employee turnover in each of the last five years, coming in at roughly 25% of conservative industry estimates.

Why Is This Better for Clients?

Burrell says, “Our number one goal is to treat our employees better than any other security company. In the world of conglomerates and board meetings, the folks at the bottom of the totem pole tend to be snowed under by numbers on the bottom line. The simple truth is that happy employees stay longer and perform better, and in the case of the security industry, it means that they do a better job for our clients.”

But in the world of impersonal spreadsheets and all-powerful profit margins, do employee incentive programs siphon away profit margins?

According to Burrell, the bottom line is not the only measure of success. “I base decisions on what is going to be good for my grandchildren—even though they’re not even born yet—not what our would-be shareholders want for the next three months.”

MASS NOTIFICATION SYSTEMS (MNS): NEWEST LINE OF DEFENSE AGAINST AN ERA OF VIOLENCE AND DISASTER

without comments

If the Sandy Hook gunman had gone into the school and pulled the fire alarm, the number of victims could have been far higher. He would have had ample confused targets as studeSunstates Security Appnts and teachers evacuated the building. A simple fire alarm is not sufficient anymore and may, by itself, be a safety hazard.
 
Organizations of all sizes must be able to communicate quickly and effectively with all personnel in more types of crises than a simple fire alarm. Mass shootings, bomb threats, terrorist attacks, amber alerts, and on-site disasters are facts of life in today’s world.

Lessons from Community Policing
 
Sunstates president Glenn Burrell says that the key to effective security is to make all personnel invested and participatory in their own security. From his experiences as a police officer on the beat, he says, “I was good at getting people in the community to trust me and give me information. I was only as effective as the people I was policing would allow me to be. If windows were drawn and doors locked when I passed, then my job was impossible. Being fed information from numerous sources allowed me to see the big picture. The same thing goes for an organization—it’s a community.”
 
Organizations must trust their employees or partners to watch over everyone’s safety. Don’t assume that someone else will report something amiss. This kind of cooperation does not happen overnight, but only through training and education, from top to bottom.

Mass Notification Systems: The Fire Alarm of the Future

According to Burrell, the future in workplace crisis management lie in Mass Notification Systems (MNS) that incorporate the community-minded approach and take advantage of all existing communication channels.

“Many schools already use mass text messaging to notify parents of any issues,” Burrell says. “Parents want to know if there is a crisis event. However, those systems rely on cell phones. This is fine unless excessive traffic—as in the case of crisis or natural disaster—crashes the network.”

Mass Notifications Systems, therefore, cannot be tied to one channel of communication—e.g., cell phones, text messaging, email—because of a wide variety of contingencies, such as power or cell network outage. During the Boston marathon bombing, for example, the cell phone network was shut down to prevent any further detonations that might have been triggered by cell phones.
 
The key is to include Wi-Fi as an additional communication channel, and in situations where seconds count, this is a huge advantage.

Good Communication Equals Business Continuity
 
Many incidents can be mitigated or negated by an early tip. Organizations must have the ability to stand everyone down from evacuating a building if an alarm is false or a ruse to clear a building. Having the ability to tell everyone in mid-flight to “stand down” and “take cover” is critical to saving lives. Furthermore, Sunstates’ own research shows that employees or associates feel more valued by organizations that allow them to communicate freely and openly with the security team. It’s a powerful way for a company to tell its employees, “We take your safety so seriously, we’re investing in it.”
 
The average workers’ compensation claim costs an organization $43k in lost time and compensation. Everyone in the organization should share tips on safety information—a picture of a malfunctioning door, a tripping hazard, a dangerous equipment problem—so that the problem can be fixed proactively. Organizations can save themselves significant time and effort by empowering their employees.
 
Nowadays, MNS is crucial to any business continuity plan. These systems give organizations the ability to notify all employees of a threat, fire, etc., with instructions about where to go and what to do—instantly. Glenn Burrell says, “Companies should incorporate MNS as a critical part of their business continuity plan.”

COMBATING CYBER-INSECURITY IN A CONNECTED WORLD

without comments

Image for Cybersecurity Best Practices Post

Cyber-space

According to a February 2013 report released by the U.S. Director of National Intelligence, Chinese hackers are engaged in a massive, ongoing cyber-espionage campaign targeting U.S. companies. The systematic campaign targets nearly every sector of the U.S. economy, from aerospace and automotive to finance, energy, media and technology—even breaking into the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. Estimated losses are tens of billions of dollars in compromised intellectual property.

Other countries’ cyber-espionage programs cited in the report—France, Russia and Israel, among others—are less widespread but just as dangerous, and all for economic gain. American intellectual property and business secrets—perhaps yours—are worth billions of dollars.

Sunstates president Glenn Burrell says, “This is not a plot from an action-thriller film; it is real and happening right now.”

Is your company doing all it can to prevent cyber-attacks and protect valuable assets? Burrell offers the following best practices to enhance your security.

Best Practices for Cyber-Defense 

  • Assess network infrastructure and identify risks. Organizations must assess their network infrastructure and make sure that their IT staff has the support from management to build a successful security program. Then, they need to establish a system for identifying and analyzing security risks.
  • Create and document cyber-security policies. Companies need to identify every segment of their infrastructure and place everything under the governance of their security policy. Look for vulnerable or unprotected devices or access points, and define the process by which these vulnerabilities are to be removed or brought into compliance.
  • Implement and test firewalls. Firewalls are the first line of defense in any network. While they are common practice nowadays and not to be overlooked, they are not always sufficient, however, particularly with laptops, which may have outdated anti-virus software or firewalls.
  • Secure remote access with strong authentication techniques and quarantine technology that identifies vulnerable remote devices.
  • Control access to high-level risk points such as servers, back-ups and administration systems with stringent security policies.
  • Establish password policies that make passwords harder to break. Mandatory password resets, password requirements such as using both upper and lower case characters, special characters, numbers, minimum length, etc., are all techniques that increase password security. The majority of hacked passwords consist of names, birthdays, all the things that most people will have as their passwords. Cyber-security audits still routinely find computers with passwords taped to the underside of keyboards, a practice that should be strictly forbidden by any security-conscious organization.
  • Conduct annual third-party security audits. Audits can identify hidden or overlooked vulnerabilities in an organization’s infrastructure. Companies should not wait to be attacked before performing a security audit. Auditors have the resources to test—and strengthen—an organization’s cyber-defenses.

30% GROWTH RATE PROMPTS PROMOTIONS AT SUNSTATES SECURITY

Denis Kelly and Robert Rogalski Accept Increased Responsibility in Key Leadership Positions

 While many companies have reported increased business activity in recent months, few can compare to Sunstates Security. Since 2010 the Raleigh, N.C.,-based security firm has attained a compounded, organic growth rate of 30%. This achievement stands out in the private security industry, which typically relies upon mergers and acquisitions to fuel growth. 

“I am very proud of what we have been able to accomplish,” says President Glenn Burrell, who joined Sunstates Security after serving 20 years in Scotland Yard. “In our industry, companies all too often lose sight of what’s important: the customer. A consequence of that short-sightedness is the need to grow via mergers and acquisitions, which often has a negative effect on customer service by diluting the corporate culture and philosophy.” 

Further evidence of the company’s success can be seen in Sunstates’ client retention rate of 97% over the past decade—one of the highest in the industry. 

To meet the demands of this growth, Sunstates has made two key structural changes, as of July 1, 2013:

  • Vice President Denis Kelly has been promoted to Executive Vice President. In this new position, Kelly will oversee the firm’s operations, sales and marketing, as well as human resources.

  • Director of Operations Robert Rogalski has been named Vice President of Operations, responsible for all field operations. Rogalski will also manage the corporate training and safety department.

“I am delighted to announce these promotions to key leadership positions,” says Burrell. “Both Denis and Robb have played an instrumental role in establishing Sunstates as one of the fastest-growing security services companies in the United States, and they will continue to provide quality leadership in the years to come.”
