CBRNE Mailroom Screening is Vital to Any Security Program

Does your frontline security program consider mail screening? As decades of real-world incidents have shown us, the mail remains an open avenue for dangerous actors to perpetrate harm. Any organization can be targeted with chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosive threats delivered through an unsecured mail system. Whether a lone wolf actor with a personal grievance or a sophisticated terrorist cell with a political agenda, the threat is persistent. Business continuity, the safety of your personnel, and your brand reputation are all at stake in your mailroom.

From commercial real estate to entertainment venues and everywhere in between, comprehensive CBRNE mail screening is a key component of a robust security program. The most sophisticated perimeter security program can fail if hostile actors infiltrate your facility through the mailroom. Even the threat of an incident or a hoax device can derail business continuity, costing millions of dollars in lost revenue and productivity. MSA Security’s mailroom screening program takes this burden off your shoulders with a comprehensive solution for today’s threat environment.
