Haines Security Solutions
At Haines Security Solutions we specialize in providing consulting services in a variety of security disciplines. At our core are physical security engineering and risk analysis.
Our consultants are life-long career specialist. Their backgrounds vary from antiterrorism, drills and exercise planning, emergency service, law enforcement, physical security and training. They enjoy sharing their collective knowledge and are sought after to speak at conferences, seminars and forums and contribute to a variety of periodicals globally.
Besides, English and Italian, we speak the languages of government; with a primary, focus on Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Veterans Administration (VA).
PHYSICAL SECURITY ENGINEERING TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION
We conduct 1-, 2- and 3-day workshops around-the-world. Our courses focus on the integration of security technologies as they relate to antiterrorism and crime prevention principles in the built environment. By bringing various disciplines involved in the building design process into a common training environment, we foster respect for and understanding of different viewpoints and establish a common language among stakeholders. This, in turn, keeps short term costs and project modifications to a minimum and reduces long term costs in material and manpower. Attendees bring projects they are working on to class which serve as case studies, allowing for peer review "lessons learned" and instructor expertise input. This collaborative effort allows students to return to work with solutions that have already been analyzed and validated.
Our UFC-Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for DOD Buildings meets DOD training certification requirements for those involved in developing mitigation strategies and building design review.
We provide security engineering certification/designation based on academic studies, speaking engagements and published materials.
Our PSET&C was selected as the 2017 Platinum ASTOR Award winner for Best Homeland Security Education Program by American Security Today magazine.
VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT AND RISK ANALYSIS
Our Asset Based Risk Analysis (ABRA) methodology establishes a baseline of security vulnerabilities and then optimizes security solutions, so that a clear picture of where a facility is today, "a snapshot in time" and where the facility can be in the future after mitigation strategies are implemented. What sets the ABRA apart from other assessment methodologies is its ability to allow for the calculation of risk reduction before a client spends limited resources on security measures that will prove ineffective.
ABRA was the recipient of a 2017 Platinum GOVIES Award for Risk Analysis by Security Today magazine.
While ABRA focuses on the facilities, our Critical Asset and Infrastructure Risk Analysis (CAIRA) methodology assesses risks to supporting energy systems (electricity, natural gas, non-drinking water and steam). CAIRA analyzes six subsets of criteria from the energy source to the asset envelope. Identifies natural and man-made hazard likelihood, determines worst case scenarios and resiliency limitations, and provides policy and procedure, physical securty and redundancy protection options.
