This would be spear-headed with the establishment of lock-and-key procedures coupled with the design, supervision and installation of anti-intrusion and detection systems. Now that the entry, exit, and perimeters are covered, I would move to cover the people inside it; by establishing control over the movement and identification of the said employees, customers, and visitors on property. I would then, on the behalf of the now protected employees, work on establishing an anti-work-place violence program and establish a means to assist corporate personal with internal and external threats.
