Unmatched Approach

The cornerstone of an effective security program is a comprehensive security plan. We can help you build your security plan by providing an objective, top-down security assessment.
With the rigor and discipline of our patented Advanced Logic Protection Heuristic Analysis (ALPHA) method, only RETA Security can objectively and comprehensively evaluate your security program. This
analysis methodology examines your specific security needs to develop a customized roadmap for improvement. Through staff interviews, the distribution of questionnaires, and visual inspection we assess:

Policies, Practices, and Procedures
Physical Security Systems
Staff Training & Preparedness
Violence Prevention & Intervention Programs
Emergency Response & Crisis Management
