Operating Environment

For Financial Institutions, maintaining a secure environment has both regulatory and operational considerations.  Many Financial Institutions have both Commercial as well as Retail facilities and operations.  Security encompasses a broad range of operations from commercial building security to Bank/Vault to ATM to transport.  Financial Institutions typically have Data Center security requirements and have on and offshore operations.  The protection and safety of personnel is also an important factor – particularly in Retail Banking.  Financial Institutions tend to have many personnel (employees, contractors), high turn-over rates, and are geographically diverse.

Another consideration for the Financial Industry has to do with the physical real estate / property management.  Financial Institutions both own a lot of real estate where they either wholly occupy space, serve as a Landlord, or a hybrid of occupancy.  At the same time, it is common for Financial Institutions to be Tenants of other spaces.  This is extremely prevalent in retail banking – but also happens on the commercial side.  This presents challenges in the areas of managing Tenant Companies and their employees, as well as on the base building access side.
