Surprisingly, one of the threats to your security can be your security request for proposal distribution process. The time and cost of creating and distributing a request for proposal often prevents organizations from finding the best possible security consultant.
"Historically, it has been too difficult to issue a security-focused request for proposal," said Harold Gillens, PSP, CFC, CHS-III, President of the International Association of Professional Security Consultants (IAPSC). "This can keep an organization from finding the most qualified security expert, which, ironically, can lead to a lower standard of security."
In response, IAPSC, the leading association for professional security consultants, has streamlined the security RFP process. This distribution tool for security project RFPs can be found at www.iapsc.org/rfp and is available for use at no charge.
"The best security RFP is the one that makes it into the hands of the most qualified candidate," said Frank Pisciotta, CSC, Past President of IAPSC. "Put simply, a security RFP is only as good as its audience."
In an era of fake news stories, credibility is at a premium. The International Association of Professional Security Consultants represents a unique group of respected, ethical and competent security consultants. This provides peace of mind to those seeking security services.
"Even established security consultants can have a conflict of interest if they also represent a product or service that they recommend. IAPSC was founded to mitigate this problem by making it easy to identify an independent security consultant," said Kerry Parker, CAE, IAPSC Executive Director. "The new RFP system can be used to find a wide variety of truly independent security consultants, including those associated with security management, physical security, security operations, information security, security training, and much more."
