Australian Government Security Construction and Equipment Committee (SCEC) Consulting
Industry Risk has the skills and experience to advise Australian Government agencies and officially sponsored suppliers to government on achieving compliance with security zone obligations, including for the most sensitive facilities.
Our SCEC security zone advisory services extend to identifying zone requirements based on site functions and assets, defining and designing the security countermeasures, producing security briefs and specifications, tender assessment, conducting progress inspections, and acting throughout the project in the best interests of the asset owner to provide a compliant cost effective solution.
