Securing property against invasion is vital for several reasons;
Firstly, for peace of mind; very few will invest heavily into a residence or commercial space that cannot protect their privacy and their lives. Secondly, for the protection of valuable goods. Encompassing everything from goods with sentimental value such as personal belongings, to valuable stock including luxurious handbags right the way through to data (including private financial data and other data of critical importance). Lastly, the threat of irreparable damage to property is cause for great concern for properties of cultural or historic value.
Only by acknowledging these three distinctions (not to mention the repercussions) can one begin their approach to securing property. Most applications will essentially be focused on protecting either the people within, the goods stored on site or non-physical assets including data, and it is only in rare cases that securing property will be concerned with all three distinctions. Applications within every sectors will face a wide spectrum of risks. On a day-to-day security basis, the majority of these will be criminal, such as Bodily Force and Power Tools, rather than terror attack such as Ballistics.
Theft within the UK has ebbed and flowed in parallel with the well-being of the economy. As tools used in attacks become more sophisticated and dangerous, criminal activity has increased as the risk to the criminal has shifted.

Whilst this may be a challenging task for any Security Professional or consultant, Charter Global offer a comprehensive range of services dedicated to the differentiating risk profiles – providing solutions to applications facing risks of all levels of severity.
