CPTED is a strategy for designing and managing the built environment in order to reduce the opportunity for crime to occur. The idea behind CPTED is that the physical design of a space can influence human behavior. Thus, by designing spaces in a certain way, crime can be deterred. CPTED includes concepts such as natural surveillance, territoriality, and access control, among others. It is used in a variety of settings, including residential neighborhoods, commercial areas, and public spaces.
Physical Penetration Testing (PPT) is a type of security testing that simulates an attacker's attempts to physically break into a building or facility in order to gain access to sensitive information or assets. PPT can help identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in physical security measures and provides recommendations for improvements.
Our team at Incircle Architecture is trained and certified in both CPTED and PPT. We have certifications from the National Institute of Crime Prevention (NICP) with advanced training in communities, schools, and commercial buildings. We also have certification from the Red Team Alliance (RTA) for Physical Penetration Testing.
We offer comprehensive CPTED assessments of your property or community, identifying potential crime hot spots and vulnerabilities. Based on the evaluation, we provide expert recommendations for physical design changes, such as natural surveillance, territoriality, and access control, to reduce the opportunity for crime to occur. We also offer PPT services to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in physical security measures and provide recommendations for improvements.
