We understand your challenges

We collaborate closely with civilian and military Federal agencies and other institutions including the utilities, financial institutions, health agencies, and foreign government agencies to determine their unique goals and issues. From that knowledge, we develop comprehensive solutions that include cost effectiveness, constructability, and regulatory compliance in the local environment as well as meeting the security requirements. Our mission is to support clients in limiting mission downtime, casualties, facility damage, data loss, data breaches, intrusions and release or theft of sensitive material.


Improving Security Across Our History

Since 1915, Black & Veatch has been committed to developing and maintaining a reputation as a reliable and trusted partner with our clients. Our project experience ranges from simple perimeter security and access control to the sophisticated systems used to protect nuclear and biological materials in the U.S. and overseas. On every project, we capitalize on the more than 10,000 professional resources of Black & Veatch, selecting people with the best education, experience, and technical background to meet your specific goals. Our professionals are trained in a variety of proven approaches, both military and commercial, including the Sandia Risk Assessment Methodology (RAM) and Vulnerability Assessment and Protection Option (VAPO).

Designing the optimal security solution requires more than engineering knowledge. It requires an understanding of mission parameters, strengths and vulnerabilities, threats and countermeasures, and most of all, human nature. We have developed this understanding through more than 100 years of service on diverse, secure Federal government programs. We are also fully independent from security equipment manufacturers, ensuring that our sole priority on every project is to find the right solution for your challenge. Nothing is more important than protecting our nation’s security.
