How can Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) strategies maximize the security of critical infrastructure?

Security experts, including AE Works’ Security Risk Manager Herb Brychta, share best practices in this Security Magazine article.

An excerpt from the article:

Brychta emphasizes the importance for security managers to get involved at the inception of a project and make recommendations while the project is still being developed. “Earlier in development, changes are less costly,” he says. “Suggestions to the design can be incorporated to better support natural access control and shape natural surveillance. During early design, I recommend that security managers [and other] professionals analyze how people will flow throughout a space and where people are working.  This is a critical opportunity to embed enclaving into a space in a way that makes sense and keeps secure utility areas and back of house functions away from normal building traffic.”
