Ensuring That Your Cannabis Business Is Compliant Now And Into The Future
Surveys & Risk Assessments
Identifying threats and vulnerabilities specific to your business is an important first step in developing a comprehensive security plan. A comprehensive security and safety plan is imperative for obtaining and maintaining your licenses to do business. Surveys and assessments are the critical first step in ensuring business continuity and resilience to risks.
For new enterprises, our consultants review and analyze your business's potential exposure to risk and then develop solutions to remove or mitigate those risks, reducing the impact to your operations..
For existing businesses, As your business matures, your risks and vulnerabilities change over time. Regulations and laws change. Threats to your industry evolve. Operations and facilities layout change. New and more efficient technology or processes are developed. As your work forces evolves, your security policies and procedures need to evolve as well.
Supply Chain - Vulnerabilities in your supply chain and product providers could adversely affect your business. Loss, damage or contamination of product can severely impact supply and revenue flow. Operations may need to be cut back or temporarily suspended. New suppliers may need to be sourced. Investigations and audits will likely be triggered.

Electronic access controls and other security systems can give you a false sense of security if not design correctly. Additionally, all security problems cannot be solved with technology. Your security, safety and fire systems design needs to also consider the human factor. If your staff and vendors don't understand how something works, they won't use it. If they find it to be an inconvenience or annoyance, they will find a work around. Not following policy or finding workarounds create gaps in your security, creating hidden vulnerabilities.
