Access control policy that is internationally consistent

Security: centralised or decentralised?

By their nature, multinationals tend to be active on several continents. When it comes to access control, this presents a variety of challenges.

A question that arises is whether security management should be centralised or decentralised – the latter presenting more challenges in communicating effectively and efficiently across the world.

Continuity and image are important factors for multinationals. Often, we hear risk managers are concerned that they don’t know whether access control meets the standards and wishes of their organisation at all locations. Not to mention whether it meets the relevant laws and regulations. As well as continuity and image, costs play an important role too. Making adjustments to grant access permissions, for example, can be very difficult and expensive.

Key questions

  • How can I handle changes in my access control system?
  • How do I ensure my access control policy is consistent internationally?
  • What challenges do I encounter daily regarding access control?
  • How quickly can we respond to changes that influence our access control policy?

Governance, control and compliance are important aspects of access control. We also see a need for international travellers visiting buildings on various continents to access all of them with one single card.

Streamlining physical access control for multinationals

Unifying your security across the world is no easy task, so we designed our Global Client Programme to help you get it right.
