OR WHAT WE DO BETTER THAN OUR COMPETITORS
One word - innovation, which we have defined as the ability to continuously deliver new value to clients. We are able to do this through the application of intelligence-led decision-making, effective leaders, teamwork and tacit knowledge.
Managing security risks successfully demands a security mindset that is well grounded in security best practices, and experience in providing security solutions. Core began as a "guard" company providing security guards and mobile patrols across Metro Vancouver in the retail, construction, event, and hospitality sectors. Core is also in the IP video surveillance market and remote access control management through a venture with Group Security. Recently, Core took a step in securing a very competitive position in the hospitality and security marketplace by registering with the BC Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch to provide security and surveillance services for the gaming industry. The registration process, which took almost a year, involved a thorough background investigation of the company and its senior officials. This included but not limited to criminal records checks and financial integrity checks. Aside from in-house security at gaming facilities, Core is the only security company in BC with this capability.
Intelligence-led risk management also does not work without an intelligence and investigations mindset. This mindset requires a keen analytical mind that can discern patterns of complex behavior, and provide an accurate understanding of present and future threats. An intelligence organization also needs a capability to identify a client's needs, to develop an effective and efficient collection plan, to exploit those sources, and then to process the resulting information into a product tailored to a client's needs.Core has a security and intelligence mindset. It is embedded in the Company's experience, management team and in its' processes, organizational culture, and its strategic partnerships. With respect to its management team, Core can leverage experience in intelligence and law enforcement operations, particularly stability, counter-terrorism and counter-drug operations. In just one instance, this experience includes establishing a national intelligence system that successfully directed security and policing operations at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels.
