Commercial and corporate events are meant to be enjoyable, raise awareness, drive business, etc. However, they also introduce additional security risks and targets. To protect the safety of your guests and your property, you need special event security detail.
Increased Security Risks and Threats
Commercial and corporate events introduce a number of security risks that may not be present during normal business operations, such as:
- Increased inventory and/ or value of displays
- Presence of corporate executives and/or dignitaries
- Large crowds
- Alcohol service
Merchandise stock, displays, prizes, etc. draw burglars and thieves, and prominent attendees or big crowds can attract those wanting to make headlines—i.e., rioters, picketers and active shooters. Alcohol often incites impulsivity and volatility, increasing the threat in any situation. Alcohol also adds the potential for liability should minors succeed in acquiring it.
Standard security patrols and/or standing guards are likely to prove inadequate should a security issue arise within these circumstances.
