“Training, Certification and Execution Standards” have evolved from positive differentiators for Physical Electronic Security Systems Integrators (SI’s) to end user required.

Achieving true enterprise security encapsulates secure identity, entry, communications, data storage and must now address a broader threat matrix.

This can only be accomplished with the collaborative efforts of stakeholders that recognize the essential value of training and certifications in their respective fields.

Key Takeaways:

  • Training, Certification and Execution to the highest standards is the foundation for world class enterprise security projects
  • End user customers value and need a commitment to training certification and execution standards from their security partner, technology manufacturer, 3rd party consultants, and construction partners
  • Common denominator in a successful deployment of enterprise security solutions is a collaborative working relationship between end users and key stakeholders
  • SOC 2 Compliance recognizes the process discipline needed at the corporate level for enterprise security solutions providers
