Take The SMSI Commercial Facility Diagnosic Test and Rate Your Facility’s Security Program
The online SMSI Commercial Facility Security Diagnosic Test is primarily for facilities that are accessible to the general public. The purpose of this security diagnostic test is to ferret out areas of risk and vulnerability. The higher the score, the higher is the risk. Facilities with high scores are more likely to have crimes committed against persons and property. This test will measure security vulnerability for any business, whether or not it serves the public. The primary difference between those businesses that afford public access, and those that do not, is that the former are exposed to the potential for lawsuits when an invitee, tenant, or outside contractor, becomes the victim of a crime and suffers injury.

This test has equal relevance regardless of the size of your facility. Remember good security programs $ave money. These questions do not highlight every security contingency that may come up in a commercial facility. They are meant to call attention to the scope breadth of security vulnerabilities that every facility must pay attention to. SMSI believes it is prudent to consider these kinds of questions now rather than waiting for a security incident to happen.
On this test a…HIGH SCORE = HIGH RISK!
Interpretation of Test Scores
47 – 56 SEVERE RISK
37 – 46 HIGH RISK
21 – 36 MODERATE RISK
11 – 20 LOW MODERATE RISK
0 – 10 LOW RISK
Thank-you for taking The Commercial Facility Diagnostic Security Test. This test is intended to identify and quantify the level of security risk for your facility as well as provide some quantification of vulnerability. The scoring format can be interpreted as High Score = High Risk. The test results by category, from high to low are: Severe Risk, High Risk, Moderate Risk, Low Moderate Risk, and Low Risk.
Those facilities that serve the public are very susceptible to lawsuits whenever someone is victimized by crime while on the property or on the property you control. The cost benefit of reducing this exposure alone is considerable.
Those facilities that have scores indicative of Severe Risk to Moderate Risk, should, at the very least, undergo a complete Security Audit conducted by a qualified security professional. These facilities, depending on the severity of risk and the nature of vulnerability, may require remedies that include both electro-mechanical security measures as well as security personnel (see The Security Solution Hierarchy™). These facilities will require careful integration of the security design deployed. Some of these facilities will also require either full or part-time security management.
Those facilities that score in the Low Moderate to Low Risk range may be able to effectively improve security through policy changes, training, and employee involvement (see the Behavior Modification Level of the Security Solution Hierarchy™). It is important to remember that security programs do not and should not, lend themselves to universal standards. Security programs are very individualized and situational by design.
SMSI would be happy to provide your hospital with a proposal to enable you to have a more effective and cost beneficial security program. SMSI will perform detailed on-site analysis of your entire security program. We can also help manage your security operations on a full or part-time basis.
