In each case we take individual approach to the issue of security of property, taking into account the need to maintain law and order, possible terrorist threats and raider attacks. Therefore, we carefully study the business-strategy of the proprietor, we identify potential risks, we conduct audit of security and solely after that we determine the only correct scheme for security of property. We provide armed and unarmed guards, depending on specifics of use and location of property.
