Force protection and Physical Security measures aren’t just buzzwords invented to make people feel better about an increasingly dangerous world. They are in fact an integral part of any risk management plan. They also happen to be proven life-savers and they might even save you money on insurance.
As a Veteran-owned company, we at Paradigm are intimately familiar with the advantages of implementing anti-terrorism and counter crime measures. We can honestly say that almost everyone who needed these measures never actually thought they needed them, but they were sure glad they had them when the time came.
