As Independent Security Consultants we do Security Risk Assessments throughout South Africa. We have a very strong footprint in: Gauteng (Pretoria & Johannesburg), Durban and Cape Town.
Look around, you will see the best security hardware on the market at some places, some have the best alarm systems and response units on their side, and yet, look at all the crime. This just proves that security hardware is only part of the solution.
Only after the incident had occurred, did some of the victims approach me to look at their risk. WHY
If you think security is expensive, try estimating the cost of ignorance.
