One of the realities of this strange, viral culture is the resulting necessity of having to start over again, not necessarily from zero, but in many instances close to that. For instance, businesses that just flirted with telecommuting or work-from-home schedules suddenly had to rethink and retool their operations to meet government guidelines for social distancing. Data-comm, Risk and Security solutions suddenly became the precursor to getting any work done at all. In fact, most of our conversations with operations, IT, and technology officers concerned an at home SOP, safety strategies and the liabilities that go along with this. We recently had a zoom call with a school district (40 some odd schools) and the challenges that go along with curriculum and the need for technology to support its teachers, and students. Whoa, how that affected our consult and strategy for a standard operating procedure. OSA wrote the policy and will publish for this district, as well as recommend and potentially implement security services.
Regardless of how big or how small your business is, this hiatus provides everyone the opportunity to look closely at their operational “habits” through risk assessments, threat analysis and security services. Questions should arise in all aspects of your business such as “What did we do right?” and “Where did we get caught by surprise?” Security Solutions are, today, as broad as many other saturated industries. We recently began an access control RFI and RFP for a privately-held food distribution and processor of fine soups. Highly regulated by the USDA, and other standards; OSA must not only put employees, client, and visitor safety at the forefront, but also food safety.
