Government buildings are dynamic environments that are often considered high threat targets. Ensuring the safety and security of these assets on U.S. soil and abroad has received greater scrutiny given recent high profile events. Government facilities are attractive targets for terrorists and are a key component of the DHS Critical Infrastructure Protection Plan. Implementing CSIM can improve overall interoperability and situational awareness and enhance security, emergency preparedness and response. Ultimately, CSIM enhances risk management.

One US federal client has multiple buildings dispersed throughout the United States. By creating efficiencies through CSIM, this agency estimates it can achieve a reduction in guard force by one guard per building, per shift, while enhancing their situational awareness. With the total annual cost for a guard at approximately $120,000, they estimate $12 million in savings over the course of a year by reducing the guard force by 100.
