Physical Security Techniques

The aim of this course is to give the participants a basic understanding of the elements and components of physical security techniques, conditions and impressions of intruder attacks, instruments and methods of attacks. This underpins the understanding of the possibilities and efficacy of integrated solutions of physical security techniques (necessary to meet the conclusions of the risk assessment) on the one hand and worthwhile, effective cost-efficient retrofitting techniques on the other hand. Knowledge of calls for tenders and planning examples is also addressed. Finally the ranking of mechanical security techniques within the physical security management concept will be evaluated.

Duration : 3 days
