Security Guarding Audits

Independent Access Audits to test your Site Security

The Silver Fox Audit of security services has, for the past 15 years, been widely identified, by security companies, their clients and in house establishments, as the most desirable and cost effective on site audit available in the industry.

A Silver Fox Audit is thorough and straightforward, you will get instant feedback on what is working and what may need improving.

Are you confident your security operation can stop an unauthorised access attempt?

By regularly testing your security defences through a programme of independent security access audits you can be certain that your security operation is up to scrutiny. This is a genuine test of the alertness and efficiency of the security staff on duty at the time of the audit. The Auditor attempts to gain unauthorised entry, using entirely conventional means, such as presenting a false ID card, tailgating, acting as a courier or even a member of the utility or emergency services.

Customer Service Audits

The Silver Fox Audit was originally developed to test contract manned guarding security teams, but is applicable to any service industry. Its value lies in the trademark principles of independence, without prior warning and at any time.

The Benefits

A regular programme of independent Silver Fox Audits carried out without prior warning at any time of the day, night or weekend has always resulted in a consistent improvement in the performance of the duty on-site security team. What we have achieved for a host of major organisations we could achieve for you.


Each time a Security Officer prevents unauthorised entry by a Silver Fox Auditor, the Officer is awarded a Silver Fox Lapel Pin Badge.

Depending upon the number of audits carried out during the calendar year, we also offer personalised glass awards for the Security Officers and a Silver Fox Certificate for the company to display to demonstrate their success and commitment to the Silver Fox Audit scheme.

Clients showing the value of The Silver Fox Audit scheme

DP World Southampton has used the Silver Fox audit programme since April 2006, the fact that these audits take place without any prior notice, and at any time of the day, night or weekend means that the contracted security staff are required to maintain a good level of vigilance at all times. The audits are conducted in a responsible manner and, whilst there have been occasions where Silver Fox has gained access to our terminal, which has highlighted ‘weaknesses’ in our security procedures, these have been addressed and a stronger deterrence to unauthorised access is now in place.

It is our view that if you take security seriously you must test yourself, Silver Fox audits are an important element of this testing process
