Port Security Management System
Community Security Best Practice & Protective Management System
The Security Practices Standards are designed to provide standards and practices supporting services that drive education, awareness, and effective implementation by stakeholders. All mass environments and critical infrastructure require security protection. Organizations need to ensure they have the processes and procedures in place to deliver an effective, efficient and compliant security provision. To help organizations be better prepared to meet these challenges, the 9/11 Center working with the INTERPORTPOLICE, to produce a suite of guidance products known as Protective Security Management Systems (PSeMS) which support a methodical and proactive approach for assessing and managing holistic security risks for senior leadership teams and security managers.
The Port Security Management System (PSeMS) provides a structured and proactive framework for assuring an organization’s security. PSeMS incorporates an approach to security that addresses the components of information, physical, cyber and personnel, and incorporates the requirement of accountability at a senior level within the organization. This document will address how government authorities and associated stakeholders using the PSeMS framework can provide a more secure and safe environment. This framework helps coordinate processes and procedures covering governance, legal requirements, operating procedures, delivery, monitoring, review, and audit for security.
In addition, the Project Griffin International (PGI) is a wide-ranging strategy to improve and support security in environments where people gather, participate or work by helping to reduce their vulnerability to terrorism and other threats. The strategy is based on the proven proactive operational imperatives of; Protect, Prevent, and Prepare.
This integrated approach provides for a Community Security Best Practice (CSBP) methodology and approach to education, tactics, collaborative communication and effective technology integration.
