Infographic: Revisiting Readiness
Do visitor management practices affect readiness levels? A recent research report from Security Management and iLobby, Security Practices in Visitor and Emergency Management, dug into this concept by surveying security professionals about visitor management’s role in their layered defenses and deterrence.
Formalizing Visitor Sign-Ins
Just under two-thirds of survey participants reported using security tools—including visitor management—to manage the flow of people and prevent access to all company facilities without a formal sign-in process. Only 5.5 percent had no formal sign-in at any facilities, and 33 percent had formal sign-ins at some facilities.
How Long Does It Take to Process a Visitor?
Organizations with larger footprints—such as those with more than 50 facilities—were more likely to have tools that allowed them to manage visitor access remotely, without the need for on-site personnel such as a secretary or security officer to manage sign-ins.
