In a step towards identifying and managing holistic security threats for educational and corporate entities, municipalities, and healthcare organizations, Michael Niola has added a Physical Security Professional (PSP) credential to his resume. As an Associate Principal of the firm, Mike leads Vantage’s Security Consulting practice, which focuses on strategic security design and engineering, and information and operational security consulting, across the US.
“Security is not a system or technology but a philosophy and approach. Your security program should be holistic in that it considers the built environment, policies, procedures, and then layers technology into it to aid with your overall security mission. All parts of the puzzle are important.” – Michael Niola
Offered by ASIS, one of the leading organizations of standards and guidelines for the profession, the PSP certification bolsters knowledge and understanding of trends in physical security via threat assessments and risk analyses; integrated physical security systems; and the appropriate identification, implementation, an ongoing evaluation of security measures. This additional level of accreditation certification furthers Mike’s efforts in physical security surveys, cost analyses, systems procurement, acceptance testing, and implementation procedures, but also is an effort towards offering clients an expanded service offering across operational security consulting that includes:
