Security Engineering Risk Assessment of IBM India Facilities

Security Engineering Risk Assessment of IBM India Facilities

Challenge

The threat environment in India has changed dramatically in recent years with the introduction of frequent terrorism attacks across the country, the most notable of which is the attacks on 26 November 2008 in Mumbai. IBM’s high profile presence as a major western information technology company, which Indian intelligence analysts have identified as a likely industry to be targeted in future attacks, has led the organization to evaluate the risks to its facilities from terrorist threats.

Solution

A security engineering risk assessment of IBM facilities in Bangalore, India was performed by ARA to evaluate and, if warranted, offer options to improve the security posture of the facility. The assessment analyzed the existing structures and security countermeasures, both physical and operational, to determine their effectiveness against potential terrorist tactics.

Impact

Based on the analysis, ARA provided recommendations to improve the structural response to explosives and mitigate against armed assaults on the campus.
