Maintain Superior Service with Offsite Security Supervision: Creating a Leaner and More Focused Security Management Force is the Key Driver Behind a Move to Remote | In Security Info Watch
Due to an escalation in the number and type of security threats to businesses, as well as growing public demand for the protection of everyday activities, the security guard services industry is experiencing solid growth. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a five percent increase in the number of guard jobs through 2024, up from an already impressive 1.15 million employed guards.
Why such high demand? As more government and corporate entities realize they need to protect their assets, including facilities, goods, and data, they are striving to proactively employ professionals who know how to best reduce risk. Approximately 8,000 U.S. security guarding companies serve all the needs of the U.S. market, but surprisingly the top 50 security firms hold over 75% of the market, with an estimated value of approximately $27 billion.
