Welcome to Security Management Services International

Security Management Services International (SMSI) is a security consulting firm that provides security management support services to our clients on a need basis. These services include, but are not limited to comprehensive security assessments, security litigation support, security vendor interface. Our clients include healthcare facilities, shopping malls, manufacturing operations, educational institutions, and residential communities, to name just a few.

Every security program is unique, driven by a set of ambient needs. Because security is a situational discipline, with the mission of reasonable mitigation, one size does not fit all. Security is also a proactive discipline, defined by both the internal and external ambient criminal threat milieu. Most security programs are industry specific, as well as location specific. Security programs are usually designed to meet a reasonable standard of care.

As professional security consultants, SMSI brings objectivity, expertise, and contemporary methodologies to the table. We do not provide guard services, nor do we provide security systems, access control systems, video surveillance systems, which helps to a assure no conflicts of interest. Our security expertise includes a wide range of industries.

Our mission is to objectively evaluate your security program, in of terms of strengths, as well as weaknesses, proportionate to the internal and external threat milieu, in a cost-effective manner. We also evaluate security programs in terms of return on investment, and cost effectiveness.

When developing a security program, the objective should ensure that the end-product is greater than the sum of the parts. If your organization has not had an objective security review within the last three years, your organization will benefit from the services we offer.

The costs, both direct and indirect, of reaction will always exceed the cost of being proactive. As you peruse our website, you will find specific areas of interest, pursuant to the range of services we offer.

Our years of expertise, as security consultants, and as court certified expert witnesses, are second to none. If you desire further information, we welcome your call at 805-241-3800. Just ask for Bill Nesbitt, CPP. You may also email me: bill@smsiinc.com

Security Assessments

Security is a dynamic discipline that is subject to modification with the passage of time. How does one determine how much security is sufficient? One of the best ways to make this determination, is to conduct periodic, objective security reviews. SMSI Inc. provides comprehensive security assessments that have been applied to hospitals, shopping malls, HOAs, distribution centers, trucking terminals, educational institutions, and manufacturing facilities.

Security Management

The concept of Security Management Support is predicated on the notion that every enterprise may not require a Board-Certified Security Manager on a full-time basis. However, most enterprises will benefit from the availability of a well-qualified security professional during the course on any year. These services include, in addition to the initial assessment, oversight of guard services, security design, vendor selection support, the establishment of internal crime prevention programs, as well as the cost-effective application of CPTED principals.

Security Management Services International Inc. (SMSI) is drawing attention to Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) because we believe it is an often ignored component of many security programs. We also believe that CPTED affords and opportunity for real cost-efficiency and improved synergy for any security program. CPTED principals may effectively be applied to Hospitals, Schools, Shopping Malls, Manufacturing Operations and the Bio-Tech Industry. Obviously, the best time to apply CPTED is during the design phase. However, CPTED can effectively be applied to any enterprise at any point in time. The goal is to produce a security program where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The SMSI team is comprised of Certified CPTED Practitioners.
