BioFacilities Managers’ Association (BFA) 2nd Quarter Meeting: Facility Security

Facility Security

Life science companies operate within a complex and challenging regulatory environment with critical concerns that extend beyond perimeter security for staff and leasehold. Secure areas within the facility such as labs, controlled substances and radioactive material storage, IP, or other highly sensitive materials and confidential data need to be protected- internally and externally. Traditional methods include elevator access controls, smart card readers and heightened access control, restricting personnel who may approach the area, video surveillance systems, video analytics and more.

During our group discussion we’ll examine how company security needs evolve as companies grow and operations change. We will also share our own experiences and consider these questions:

  • What security risks are we working to mitigate?
  • What are the most effective and best practice solutions?  Cost / benefit?  Biggest “bang for your buck”?
  • How do you source and implement solutions? Have you received negative employee feedback regarding security measures? If so, how did you address?
  • How valuable is a security guard and/or receptionist at the main entrance? Do ‘unmanned’ reception areas with just a phone work?
