Volatile situations require a focussed and targeted response to threats and a measured plan of action going forward.
The private security industry in South Africa is among the largest in the world, tripling the numbers of the national South African Police Force. Recently, the South African security response was further strengthened by President Cyril Ramaphosa’s decision to deploy 70 000 additional troops to enforce lockdown regulations and the country’s crime response.
At this critical time, most South African businesses will experience an impact on their bottom line; employees and stakeholders will remain unsure of the future, while health and safety become the nation’s most pressing issue.
The integrity of the private security industry remains your best opportunity for domestic protection and especially for business risk managers and chief operating officers to align with the best strategy in responding to the risk, securing business premises and assets, applying loss prevention tactics and implementing the best security action plan for the immediate future under Covid-19.

Be especially cautious of regions affected by additional crises factors such as power outages due to cable theft and non-operational food and water supplies in the region.
Learning & Adapting to Security Threats
As local economies are restricted and communities feel the burden of loss of income together with resource constraints, fears of impending food shortages and contracting the disease itself, the burden of enforcing the Covid-19 lockdown laws falls on the police and the private security industry.
