Dear Friends,

After serving in the Indian Army and the industry for 36 years, I am on the verge of superannuation! During this period I have seen the industries growing, economy becoming stronger, the people having more purchasing powers and also saw wealth creation on rejuvenating upward swing! I have seen in these 36 years India taking tentative steps, hesitating in decisions and having reserved interactions with global community. In contrast, today’s India is poised to be a superpower, taking bold decisions and interacting with big or small countries on equal terms.

Today’s India is confident, hardworking and highly skilled! New business avenues are explored; new entrepreneurs are joining by the dozens everyday – all with fair chances of being successful. This means that the profession of security managers is in ‘all time high’ demand! In any case, ‘bloom time or gloom time’ security profession is going to go up, though for different reasons. More wealth creation means need for better and higher security. In lawlessness and poor governance, need for security goes up many notches!

So, whichever way we look at the security profession, we will have to remain relevant and ready to deliver! This is possible only when we “Professionalize the Profession”. This slogan I have been using for almost more than two decades highlighting the need to be more organised, better educated and more sufficiently trained. I have been emphasising that in India we have broken three stereotypes so far and need to break the last reaming one. The broken stereotypes/biases are –

· The Chaukidars with lathi and whistle means ‘security’.

· Only ex-police and servicemen are good for security duties.

· Security guards are not very intelligent and can’t perform complex jobs.

The industries have learnt, albeit, painfully that those need security most who can hardly afford it. It has learnt again with pains that two-third of start-ups fail due to bad security. Now security is not only about checking, frisking and patrolling, it is very integral part of ‘Total Loss Prevention Program, which writes success stories for the business and industries.

The Businessmen now readily understand that ‘money saved is money made’! They also understand that when every penny counts, it is foolish to let the losses and pilferages continue. They have slowly yet surely understood that security is now part of productivity and profitability. Thus the last yet very significant paradigm change which I am witnessing is that the industry is breaking away from the approach that Security is ‘cost centre’ and not a management function”.

The security management has become an integral part of total management functions. The Security Chiefs are now being invited in Board meetings. Their views are obtained and expertise sought before important decisions. The security imperatives are dove-tailed in blue print stage itself for any project. Security budgets are reasonable now-a-days. The expenditures on security measures are not linked any more with return-on-investment. The management is most likely to appreciate the cost of not having security or cost of having bad security first before considering cost of having effective security.

The paradigms in security management have definitely changed. Yet at the fag-end of my professional career I feel that there is lot yet to be done. We Security Professionals read less and write even lesser! Our success stories are not known ‘cause these are not written! We have a lot to do compare to western world. There are books to be written for the students aspiring to make security as their chosen profession. There are standards to be written for security gadgets, systems and applications. There are ethics to be framed and adopted for security professionals, consultants and service providers. And there are compliance issues to be flagged for remedial measures.

I feel under professional compulsion and as part of my personal obligation to ‘give back’ to the profession which has given me name, fame and satisfaction in the form of actively supporting all industry efforts and initiatives to make security profession a glorious profession – by writing, participating in seminars, workshops and training initiatives and framing and drafting standards and procedures.

If I am successful in contributing for improving the professionalism in our profession in anyways, it will be my life-time achievement!

Finally, it ’aint over till it is over! I have eleven more months of professional life! So cheers!!

Last but not the least!

Dear Capt Tyagi,

Nice to read your mail at the commencement of retirement year. Wish you all the best for future.

My experience of the Security field in India (2003-14) gave me the following points.

  • The domain is clearly divided into buyers and sellers. Buyers are the owners of installations, hospitals, schools or any other establishment seeking security cover, while the sellers are the security companies selling one form of service or other.
  • The only meeting point between the buyer and the seller is PRICE _ not quality! At some places, it is quality specified in great detail with lowest price. An example from personal experience _ an IT company gave out 6 pages of their expectations from a guard with penalties specified, but were not willing to pay the minimum wages specified for the state!
  • The buyers either demand a bribe for the contract demand a "payment period" of 3-4 months, or both. Noone cares about how the security company will pay the bribe and also foot the wage bills and Service Tax load for a few months without malpractice. So the field forces corruption on the service provier – the bigger the contract, higher the volume of corruption.
  • The real ‘earner’ of security service is the Guard, who does not have any pride of profession. As a result, he turns into a vagabond, quitting the job at a whim and joining another company. The loss is borne by the security company, which has to ‘create’ funds to meet the impact of desertion.
  • Most users/potential users have no time for Risk Analysis based security plan. I have personally offered ‘free’ Risk Analysis to some hospitals and it has been refused. No school, hotel or industry wants to utilise the services of security professionals for risk analisys.
  • Whether it is Fire safety, Electrical safety, School/Hospital/Airport/Harbour/Hotel/Office/ any other security, noone is interested in taking lessons from events and improving. People depend more on luck than preparation.
  • The Government is silent – indifferent to this field offering employment to nearly 1% of the population.
  • So called ‘Seminars’ are only meant to socialize / pamper the users in one way or another, for continuing with the status quo. We all willingly join, make condescending noice and move on, since there is nothing esle we can do.
  • I do not know of any Seminar attended by HR managers (who are our buyers) or focussed on improving the aforesaid issues.

As a result of the above cited experience, I have donned the role of a ‘Bhismacharya’ as that is easier than putting on a face mask to continue. I can only hope that going forward, your experience is going to be better.

Regards,
Brigadier Sreeramulu

"Difficult will be done right NOW, impossible may take a little longer."

International Council of Security and Safety Management (ICISSM) is purely non-commercial forum without any support from any business groups or projected by any business house in the background. All its members have no stake in any solution providing or consultancy firms. Their association with ICISS is totally based on mutual benefit of knowledge sharing and networking. We welcome all the security and safety professional world over from diverse background and encourage them to interact freely by asking the questions, replying them or by sharing their knowledge and experience. The council also strives to have strategic alliances with similar forums world over for furtherance of its objectives. Formed in 2010, the Council is totally aprtisan, apolitical and does not represent any pressure group or interest group. We strive not to provide surrogate platform for anyone to enhance their respective business interest. It is thus totally professionals’ body aimed at, ‘professionalizing the professionals’!
