Security Guards Require Less Training than Manicurists

Lobbying by the security industry has been so effective that armed guards with tacit approval to use lethal force are offering armed personnel services state by state with inconsistent training and/or testing requirements. Big businesses have derailed attempts to require rigorous training standards for armed guards across the country, most of whom face fewer state training requirements than a manicurist in a California nail salon. In California, an armed guard must have received 14 hours of gun training, six of Read More

Why Physical Security is Just as Important as Cyber Security

Many businesses spend a lot of time and money focused on firewalls and encryption software to protect their IT systems and data – and rightly so. However, physical security is often overlooked when compared to cyber security when it can be just as crucial, especially for small businesses that do not have the same resources as larger firms to devote to security personnel and tools.
