Why They Don’t Sell Security Equipment or Services
Security risk assessors play a crucial role in identifying Security Risks and recommending solutions to mitigate risks. However, there are certain services they typically don’t offer.

Focus on Assessment:

Security risk assessors specialize in assessing existing security measures and identifying potential weaknesses. Their primary focus lies in conducting thorough assessments rather than selling or providing specific security products or services.

Independence and Objectivity:

By refraining from selling security equipment or services, risk assessors maintain their independence and objectivity. This ensures that their assessments are unbiased and solely based on identifying the most effective security solutions for their clients, rather than being influenced by sales incentives.

Specialized Expertise:

While security risk assessors possess in-depth knowledge of security principles and risk management, they may lack the specialized expertise required for tasks such as installing security equipment, providing security guard services, or offering computer/network consulting. They recognize the importance of relying on professionals with specific skill sets to deliver these services effectively.

Avoiding Conflicts of Interest:

Engaging in the sale or provision of security-related services could create conflicts of interest for risk assessors. It may compromise the integrity of their assessments if clients perceive them as attempting to sell additional services or products. By maintaining a clear separation between assessment and implementation, risk assessors uphold their credibility and integrity within the industry.

Legal and Ethical Considerations:

There are legal and ethical considerations associated with offering certain security-related services. For example, providing security guard services may require licensing and adherence to specific regulations. By avoiding involvement in such services, risk assessors mitigate potential legal and ethical risks while focusing on their core competency of conducting comprehensive security assessments.

In summary

Security risk assessors play a vital role in Assessing security risks and recommending mitigation strategies. While they excel in assessing vulnerabilities and identifying solutions, they typically refrain from directly selling or providing security equipment or services. By maintaining independence, objectivity, and a focus on assessment, risk assessors uphold professional standards and ensure the integrity of their work within the security industry.
