Physical security design encompasses many different elements and processes that affect the entire campus. It is important to obtain support from those who will benefit and/or be affected by the introduction of new processes, change or modification to existing procedures, and the modification of exterior and/or interior structures.
The most effective way to build momentum in the development of a physical security program is to create a physical security committee. The team will consist of members in strategic positions of influence, such as administration, IT, operations, safety, security, risk and planning. Setting limits on the number of committee members is equally important. No more than eight members should be assembled for this program.
