Florida Physical Security Consulting
Invictus Physical Security Consulting ultimate objective is to develop a security program that is reasonable to the property’s security needs and mitigates risks. Furthermore, our security consulting services aim to recommend cost-effective countermeasures that will produce a return on investment. Additionally, the security program should integrate people, procedures, and technology, which provide protection in depth for the property. The first step is a Risk Assessment and Physical Security Survey. Invictus provides Physical Security Consulting for Business organizations, Houses of Worship, Condominiums, Gated Communities and Country Clubs.

Security Program Design, Project Management, and Implementation
Physical Security Consulting Services develops a security program to include security policies, procedures, and post orders. A security program is intended to integrate people, procedures, and technology with the capability to Deter, Detect, Delay and Deny intrusions. Our consultants will design a customized security program that meets the security needs of the property based on the outcome of the security survey. The security program will incorporate the protection of people, property, and information. The following step after the security program is designed, is implementation. Implementation of the security program includes the training of staff and management on the program, ensuring security is working as one element for the security and safety of the community.
Additionally, we can assist the Board of Directors in the following:
- Requests for proposals (RFP) for contract security services
- Review of vendor submittals
- Evaluation of vendor ability to conduct the work (criminal & civil record, financial status, schedule conflicts and references)
- Recommendations on vendor selection
- Providing onsite security training for security staff, contractors, and management
