School Security & Security Risk Assessments for Schools
As experienced education security consultants, we understand that security risk assessments are an integral aspect of a school’s security risk management practices. With over two decades of industry experience, our security audits take a holistic approach to the security and safety of your institution, students, staff, property, school and college assets.
We analyse over 215 elements when evaluating your campus from a security risk perspective. Our process is very comprehensive.
Most security risk assessments in schools and universities are generally conducted every two years.
With Risk Dynamyx, our assessments are continuous.
This means that after your onsite review is conducted and your report is completed, your risk rating and data is continuously updated in your personalised dashboard.
As soon as something changes in your environment, you are immediately alerted.
You don’t have to wait another two years before your next risk assessment.
Every day we are monitoring your local environment for change. This includes crime rates, neighbourhood movements and the national terrorism threat levels.
This process has completely changed the way security risk assessments are conducted in Australian schools and education institutions and it allows Principals, school and university leaders complete visibility over the safety and security of their property and people, continuously.
