From maintaining public safety and secure physical premises to safeguarding clients’ confidential data and more, the security sector plays a crucial role in Singapore. With COVID-19, many security agencies also had to step up and support government-wide efforts in curbing the spread of the disease. While it has reacted nimbly to the demands of the pandemic, staying vigilant and adopting good practices are still key as the security sector continues to prepare for disruption and tackle new challenges. 

To ensure that they can continue to maintain essential business operations and provide quality services for their clients during unprecedented times, it is important for security agencies to have a robust business continuity plan (BCP). This will minimise risk and disruption in their business operations and build clients’ confidence.

Furthermore, as part of the Police Licensing & Regulatory Department’s (PLRD) new assessment framework for Security Agencies Competency Evaluation (SACE), security agencies are required to have a BCP to ensure business continuity in contingencies such as:

1. Major disasters (e.g. island-wide floods, building collapse)

2. IT related incidents (e.g. cyber attacks)

3. Terror-related incidents (e.g. bomb attack, vehicle attack)

4. Diseases outbreak (e.g. pandemic)


This webinar aims to help security agencies to: 

1. Better understand the potential scenarios and impact of the four contingencies mentioned above

2. Learn how to curate and implement their own BCP and prepare for the new Security Agencies Competency Evaluation (SACE)

Effective Business Continuity for Security Agencies - Sharing by Mr Henry Ee (Managing Director, BCP Asia) 

As we gradually recover from   the effects of COVID-19, many of us are thinking about our next steps and reviewing our current plans and systems to ensure that they are resilient enough to weather the next big crisis or incident. To aid in your planning, we have prepared a webinar to share on the effectiveness of business continuity, focusing on Security Agencies operating in Singapore. In this webinar, learn more about the possible adverse events that security agencies can face based on the 4 contingencies identified by PLRD and how an effective business continuity programme aligned to the PLDR Audit checklist can benefit your organisation.
