Our assessment process is among the most scientific, practical, usable, and comprehensive in the industry. Assessments conducted by Minieri Associates are performed by highly experienced and qulaified consultants CERTIFIED in Sandia Laboratories Risk Assessment Methodology (RAM). We have reviewed dozens of popular methodologies and have incorporated the BEST ELEMENTS of each into our unique, custom protocols. Our very popular reporting format includes FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS and RECOMMENDATIONS for each issue we identify. Our reports also include a summary of fundamental security concepts that provide even non-securiity executives a baseline for effective security against which they may compare the findings of the Assessment.
Minieri Associates produces comprehensive, WORLD CLASS professional security documentation for application to all sizes and types of organizations from a single building to a global enterprise. Let us show you how we have successfully developed innovative and effective solutions to the most difficult challenges. We know how to accommodate organizations comprised of many facilities of various sizes, environments, parameters and characteristics each having their own unique threats and risks, located all around the globe. Our language is truly "actionable" with "measurable and/or obserable" terminology that can be OBJECTIVELY audited for performance and compliance. Getting complaints that your documents are too "Americanized"? We can write "Global-centric"!
Minieri Associates is one of relatively few security consulting firms with both "soft skills" and full scope design & engineering capabilities "in-house". We can start from a "clean sheet" and take your project beyond 100% testing, final commissioning and owner acceptance. Our speciality is FULLY INTEGRATED systems and centralized systems through a global network. Most importantly, we treat technology as an integral element of your overall security program. Components are incorporated on a "threat/risk" basis with a clear security objective as the foundation. We address all physical security elements including access control, CCTV, detection, lighting, signage, barriers, communications, vehicular & pedestrian traffic flow, building placement, orientation and proximities, vehicle, pedestrian, cargo, package and mail search screening and much, much more!
The most common mistake in security planning is to start by "FINDING" places to post guards and then "make work" for them to do at that location (also common with CCTV cameras!). Minieri Associates recommends security personnel staffing based on pre-determined client security objectives. We treat guard programs (part of Operational Security) as the third key element along with Architectural Security and Technological Security. Our work addresses ALL security personnel at all levels of the organization be they "proprietary" (aka "in-house") or contracted. Minieri Associates develops comprehensive and detailed programs covering every aspect of deployment and considers "normal" daily operations as well as staffing needs under emergency conditions..
"TRAINING" has long been one of the most common complaints and a most significant shortcomming of the global security industry. We develop custom security training programs - with off-the-shelf modules where beneficial - for security personnel as well as non-security personnel. We deliver training and train-the-trainer programs using CERTIFIED SECURITY TRAINERS (CST) and can make your organization "self sufficient" through the transfer of knowledge. Courses are available at basic, intermediate and advanced levels as well as in highly specialized areas such as "marine/boat security teams." You can mandate that the custom security training we develop for you be delivered by your guard contractor.,
Minieri Associates also covers highly specialized security issues and has developed many innovative solutions to some very unique challenges. The list below shows some examples to illustrate what Minieri Associates can do for you ....if you don't see it, just ask us!

We don't claim to be "all things to all clients"...just extremely good at those services we DO offer! With the agreement of our clients, Minieri Associates will either sub-contract - or provide referrals - for speciality services outside of our core competencies. In some cases, we do not have the necessary specialized equipment or software as these can be cost-prohibitive for the relatively small demand for such tasks. Suffice it to say that Minieri Associates would prefer not to diminish our stellar reputation by taking on tasks that we can not perform to our usual high standards. We DON'T:
