Why physical security assessments are so often overlooked

As we all know, the first step to good security is a comprehensive assessment. Like a doctor evaluating a patient, we, as security experts, must assess and diagnose the facility looking for different ailments to mitigate. Our task is to identify the facility's unique vulnerabilities and coach the client as how to reduce each potential attack surface.

One of the most challenging and time-consuming aspects of this mission is effectively communicating our findings to our clients in a written report. It is something we all inherently know how to do, but more often then not, we think like an expert, not like the client.

If your doctor gave you a 60-page report after your visit, you'd probably never read it. Your client thinks the same.

When writing your assessment, it is wise to live by this quote, "If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter."

Actionable, brief, and comprehensive are the qualities we look for in good report writing. This is easier said than done. But like many challenging missions, there are great tools to assist you in your efforts.

Introducing EasySet, a comprehensive report writing software that generates thorough risk and vulnerability assessments that your client will actually read.

EasySet automatically generates charts, graphs, and tables, all of which visually convey your findings to the client.
