Providing security that effectively addresses ever-changing requirements demands a constant flow of data from and to the field. Securitas’ adaptive procedures draw heavily on the company’s COVID-19 Global Knowledge Library, which is an accumulation of best practices gleaned from ongoing CDC recommendations and the company’s COVID-19 specific field experiences. This Library now reflects the key learnings across dozens of industries and thousands of clients globally, including numerous Fortune 500 health care, manufacturing, consumer products and technology firms.

“Our Global Knowledge Library is another distinct asset we are leveraging to our clients’ full advantage,” said Anderson. “Feedback from our clients continues to reinforce the high value of our COVID resources and services, and their ability to quickly address new situational requirements.”
