We are dedicated to hardening your organization from intruders or threats that will ensure both resiliency and sustainability during periods of crisis or prosperity. At CIVARA we enter your establishment with one goal in mind—peace of mind with maximum preparedness and response. We provide a detailed analysis and recommendation(s) of the state of your total security portfolio from local to global and then, develop the best security solution(s) for your employees and hard assets.

We are independent and are not affiliated with security products, retailers, re-sellers, installers, or guard-service providers—giving you absolute control in the decision-making phase. What we provide is superior security-solutions consulting services that deliver quality and an independent analysis of the status of your firm’s security. Our comprehensive security solutions evaluation business model permits you to decide which service and or product suits your needs best.

We are committed from the onset of the project; and while other firms end their services at the conclusion of the assessment, our practice is that work begins during the transitioning process at no additional cost to you. We are with you every step of the way through the completion of the project to guarantee successful threat-management solutions, goals, and organizational standards adequately meet your expectations.  Additionally, as an organization, we take into consideration your fiscal outlook, protective and threat mitigations, management measures, corporate culture, and budget regulations to ensure you are provided with the best recommendations meeting those identifiable needs. We offer a range of security solutions based on varying factors and give you the tools to measure those recommendations on an ongoing basis.  Please review the following table of services in  determining  which area we may best be of service to you.

Approach

Threats of criminal activity and in some cases, terrorist attack against a company or agency’s assets and interests are ever present. Crime has generally increased especially burglary, vehicle theft, and related crimes during the past decade and continues to increase in a poor economy. And, since 9/11 terrorist attacks have increased in both number and intensity around the globe. Natural hazards from earthquakes, typhoons, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are also of great concern. While most companies and agencies can be easily geared for response to a general crime, an attack or natural hazard, very few work on preparedness or prevention. CIVARA approaches critical infrastructure and personal and facility protection from an all hazards point of view.

Every apartment complex and other private and public-sector enterprise has a responsibility to do all they can to protect their businesses, operations, employees, customers, and facilities against a criminal act, even against terrorism. Our role at CIVARA is to develop plans and procedures to efficiently assist your entity to protect your assets and resources.

As an example, for critical infrastructure protection (CIP), we utilize a model-based vulnerability analysis (MBVA) approach that is at the cutting edge of CIP, having been developed by the Department of Defense. This approach allows CIVARA to perform a network analysis on an entire system with great accuracy whether it is a small to large apartment complex or mall, the San Francisco Bart, New York Subway, or the Tokyo Metro Co. Ltd., the world’s second largest transportation subway system with over 281 kilometers of rail lines and about 3 billion passengers per year.  Because such systems are too large and resources too scarce to adequately protect every entity, the most critical areas and components are identified and hardened, allowing the client to allocate precious resources to the most vulnerable areas. Few other firms can boast such prowess or skill.

We constantly strive to maintain cutting-edge technology that can be passed to our clients to improve security operations, plans, and policies. Earned profits generally determine how and what security procedures a company or agency plans.  Thus, the most favored approach by the client is risk assessment based on dollars lost or generated, whether in need of simple surveillance and patrol of a facility to more strategic scales.

Deciding on the right course of action to take is less clear, which is why we are here to assist you. Our customers need information. What is the threat? Is my organization a likely target? Are my facilities vulnerable to criminal acts? How secure is my apartment complex? Am I leasing to a potential criminal? How vulnerable is our shopping mall? How exposed is my pipeline? Are SCADA controls sufficient? What is the likely impact of a vehicle theft or similar crime or even an attack using explosives? …using weapons of mass destruction? …using chemical weapons? What can we do to make sure our office building(s) or manufacturing plant remains operational? Is our security force equipped with everything they need? Do security personnel require greater skills and training? What more can we do?

CIVARA answers these questions and more. Our professionals have been involved with protecting critical infrastructure, resources, apartment complexes, other facilities, and VIP’s for years. Our team is made up of former military leaders, police commanders, Navy SEALs, and other security professionals, with experience in analyzing threats, evaluating prevention and response procedures, analyzing blast affects, and using mathematical formulas to quantify the impact of attack in terms of loss of life and economic damage. From the simplest needs to the most complex our team can help you.

The CIVARA Associates team develops solutions to counter crime and other more extreme scenarios. We identify the means to deter criminal acts, an attack, detect threats, mitigate their impact, and develop processes and procedures for effective response to limit damage and potential loss of life. CIVARA then provides the client with cost estimates for countering each threat, reducing the risk of attack, and eliminating/reducing the vulnerability to attack.

With this information our clients leaders have what they need to make informed decisions and allocate resources in the most efficient manner.

Business Development & Execution

CIVARA works with the client through a combination of strategic analysis, analytics, support, partnership building, existing technologies, and other tasks to meet the required, specific security needs of your organization. Whether your concern is critical infrastructure protection, cyber assets, perimeter security, physical security and related technologies, surveillance, tactical operations support and training, or VIP protection, our processes and planning can help you achieve the security solution necessary for you to maintain continuity of operations, whether you are an apartment complex, shopping mall, oil field, or strategic level infrastructure. We will help identify, prioritize, and implement cost effective solutions that satisfy requirements for all of your security needs.
