Managing technology risks for effective estate security
Hi-Tech Security Solutions and Rob Anderson recently collaborated on hosting the first Residential Estate Security Conference of 2018 in Durban. Held at the Durban Country Club, the conference saw 100 estate security and risk managers from the surrounding area gathering for a day of insights into how to best manage their estates' technology risks.
The conference also had an exhibition area where the sponsors of the day had table-top stands displaying their products and services aimed at the residential estate market.
The sponsors for this conference were:
The day started with Rob Anderson setting the scene for the rest of the conference. Anderson explained to the audience what a risk assessment is and why it is important to manage and mitigate your estate's technology risks. Today's security operations rely on technology to function effectively, but even the best technology brings its own risks, whether as a result of poor planning or installation, or because of unforeseen events. The estate manager (or estate security or risk manager) is responsible for mitigating these risks to obtain the optimal performance from technology to ensure the estate's residents are secure.
Managing these risks starts from the quotation stage and persists through installation, maintenance and ongoing operations. This risk management not only provides residents with the safety they believe they are paying for in an estate, but also adds value to their property investment by making the estate a desirable location. Anderson briefly highlighted the various areas of risk the rest of the day's speakers would deal with.
