Overall security

Fierce competition, professional criminality, political instability in certain parts of the world... In such challenging conditions, businesses require a constant and comprehensive strategic awareness, taking all necessary measures to prevent incidents and protect their interests.
Protecting and defending a company and its employees requires strategies and resources which are tailored not just to the business environment, but also to the malicious forces, risks and threats identified.


Expert responses to your security and defence questions


In this challenging environment, HAXXOM helps you to identify, understand and define comprehensive security and defence strategies. We work closely with you to plan and coordinate corrective actions and measures, responding to the priorities identified by your company's directors and shareholders.


Contrary to safety concerns, security issues are always the result of voluntary, malicious actions.

  • Audits of headquarters, sensitive sites, facilities open to the public, industrial facilities, ports and airports
  • Assistance with project management and commissioning
  • Security engineering for major projects
  • Support with tendering processes and the drafting of technical specifications 
  • Approved security service providers (security guards, CCTV, equipment etc.)
  • Drafting security guidelines
  • Drafting security rules and procedures
  • Drafting continuity plans
  • Recruitment of security managers or directors
  • Combating fraud and inventory shrinkage
  • Protection of information
  • Testing for vulnerabilities and physical intrusion weak points
  • Selection, recruitment and training of safety and security personnel
  • Detection and protection against electronic intrusion (detecting illegal surveillance and taking appropriate counter-measures)
  • Security of confidential events and actions (negotiations, strategy meetings, new projects etc.)

Two levels of security audit

These two levels of security audit are applicable to all premises and facilities:
headquarters, sensitive sites, facilities open to the public, industrial facilities, ports and airports etc.

Level 1

This approach is well-suited to security audits which must cover a large number of sites in a short period of time, and is also ideal for smaller organisations.

The security audit includes:

Risk analysis
150 key questions

Vulnerabilities and recommendations

General overview

This security audit provides a rapid analytical overview of the current situation and the measures required

Duration: 2 days
(including the site visit and drafting of the report)

Level 2

This approach is recommended for sensitive sites or facilities which have been targeted by malicious activities.

The security audit includes:

3D modelling of the site
Analysis of risks and threats
Analysis of recent malicious activity
Analysis of the site's operating environment
Analysis of key flows
Analysis of mechanical and electronic protection capabilities
Analysis of human resources dedicated to security and protection
Analysis of procedures and protocols
Analysis of crisis and continuity plans
Identification of vulnerabilities and recommendations for all of the points listed above

Duration: 5 days on site (not including the report drafting process)
