Security Staff

The organization should appoint a security manager. The preference is for the security manager to be an employee of the company. Sufficient backup resources should be available to ensure that the security managers’ function is available around the clock with either physical presence and/or on a standby basis for out of office hours.

Other security staff and how they execute their tasks are of vital importance to maintain proper levels of security.

The organization should have a clear description of the requirements for the security staff including prerequisites. Where possible, and allowed by the local regulations, a background check on security staff should be performed.

Where outsourcing takes place, the SLA should include requirements for screening and background checks of security officers and job responsibilities for each.
