As an Independent Security Risk Assessment company, Alwinco’s approach to security is holistic; we look at the risks and solutions from every angle. There are 5 different viewpoints when it comes to security and (4) categories of crime (exclude cybercrime) All these viewpoints and crime categories are thoroughly discussed in the risk assessment.
An independent assessor is never part of the solution. They do not sell or install security products, nor do they get a commission from the security advice or solutions provided.
Alwinco takes security very seriously as we know that people’s lives are at stake. As mentioned, we are the only Independent Security Consultants in South Africa as well as in Africa that focus on Security risk assessment.
As Independent Security Consultants, we are not in the same league as a Product Assessment, Cosmetic Assessment, and the like.
Reasoning with crime is like reasoning with death. It is inevitable and has no value.
We at Alwinco know that crime cannot be undone… Read your Security Risk Assessment.
Note that I did not ask if you have security… I asked if you have a Security Risk Assessment. The general perception is that a Security Risk Assessment and Security is the same thing, however, in reality, these two concepts are two very different things, related, but different.
As Security Risk Assessors, our aim is to continuously educate and convince those in leadership positions regarding the importance and value of ensuring that regular Independent Security Risk Assessments are conducted. We strive to educate and familiarise as many people and entities within all the different sectors about the Security Risk Assessment and the numerous benefits thereof.
Through empowering individuals and organisations with the necessary and relevant knowledge and training, Alwinco will provide everyone with the means and methods in which to effectively guard and secure their fixed properties against crime.
