Telecom and Media

Operating Environment

For Telecom and Media businesses, maintaining a secure environment is extremely important.  Both Telecom and Media companies tend to be quite large enterprises and have disparate physical security systems and processes that may be attributed to expansions or acquisitions. These companies can be either Landlords or Tenants – particularly on the Retail side of their operations. They may also employ third party contractors to augment workforce, for specialty skills, and have many vendors and suppliers to consider.

Both Telecom and Media businesses have Data Center security requirements and have on and offshore operations.
