Security Assessments & Requests For Proposals

LPT Security Consulting is an independent security expert and consulting firm that is not affiliated with any service provider or vendor that may provide physical security hardware or services.

A security assessment can cover a lot of ground depending on the size and complexity of the company. However there is not a specific outline or standard for the areas to be reviewed. Said another way, a request for proposal is collaborative with the client and should not simply state: Provide a price to conduct a security assessment.
