Trouble shooting

As it implies – no problem is too big for us to analyse and provide advice on or to develop solutions. From your laptop failing to your policy writing… we can have it covered.


  1. Protective measures must be so designed that, when a breach of security occurs, this fact is known as quickly as possible.
  2. The first breach of security occurs when it becomes known that a target exists.
  3. Security measures should be commensurate to and with the threat.
  4. Concentration of protection should be where risk is greatest.
  5. If sabotage is a threat, bottlenecks must be eliminated.
  6. “The need to know” – The criterion of access is need.
  7. Security must have a good image.
  8. It is not one measure that will give security, but the sum of all practical and possible measures.
  9. That which protects must itself be protected.
  10. Security documentation must remain confidential.
  11. Protection of the work people and of property is responsibility of the proprietor or his/her manager.
  12. All security systems should contain an element of surprise for the criminal.
  13. Co-operation is required from employees, all site users and other agencies.
  14. ‘Responsibility’ is allocated but ‘Accountability’ must be acknowledged.
  15. While the strongest barrier must be closest to the target, the most effective alarm is that which gives earliest warning.
  16. Security measures of whatever kind must ultimately defer to the concept of human freedom.
