Asset protection at National Energy is conceptualised under the philosophy that risk is always present. Therefore, the security strategy and design are products of a Threat Vulnerability Assessment (TVA) that informs the level of risk and determines the response.
Our asset protection strategy is multi-faceted, mirroring the similarly multi-natured asset base. The primary security objective is aimed at continuously increasing the resilience level of all Company assets. The physical execution of our efforts, namely, access control and compliance, is primarily dependent upon external service providers. Technological inputs serve to supplement the human guard design.
Critical to our asset protection operations is our responsibility to and relationships with state agencies such as the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard, Port Health Authority, Customs and Excise Division, Immigration and the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service. To ensure compliance, we are bound by the mandates of the International Shipping and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code and other Acts and regulations for our Maritime and land-based activities. Our relationships with industry partners add value in an unofficial mutual assistance arrangement via our different security council meetings.
The success of any asset protection effort is heavily dependent upon the competence and commitment of the implementers.
