To develop the Security Standards/Guidelines, Lobo first develops a strong understanding of the operational requirements of the facility.

This helps direct the security concepts incorporated in the Standards/Guidelines.

The Security Standards can include descriptions of every system and the specific requirements related to each system. Performance requirements of every security device can also be provided, including the technology to ensure comparable products are purchased at each related site.
