Since the end of the 20st Century, we experience a growing tendency by official authorities to involve and transfer more responsibilities for public security missions to the Civilian Security Industry (security companies / organizations), responsibilities traditionally held in the past by law enforcement sectors or various emergency service’s providers.
The Corona Virus pandemic and the resultant dramatic economic crisis have created a new extreme difficult reality such as: various NEW enforcement duties: isolation, various public limitations, more violent crimes, robberies in public or in private environments and mass violent looting .
These responsibilities already involve the Civilian Security Industry also in incredibly challenging operations such as: Violent crime prevention and confrontations with armed robberies encounters and its possible effects later.
Security, therefore, has taken the forefront
In International, Governmental and Corporate strategies.
Due to the expected high demand and need to privatize certain functions of government, it may initiate a major transformation in the civilian Security Industry.
This trend follows various regulatory requirements and upgrades by the government’s desire for a more efficient security apparatus and safer public environment.
Many countries worldwide are entering a process of upgrading their professional security requirements and will no doubt review their regulations, implement and enforce the security studies for CHIEF SECURITY OFFICER as mandatory for the most important security posts in various organizations and companies.
Each state “regulator” should be expected to exert and exact greater demand from the person in that position, and it may not be good enough merely being an ex-military (SAS, Navy Seal) or a police officer. These personnel will need major security and professional upgrades to mitigate and overcome the potential threat in each one of the newborn homeland’s security issues or encounters.
