Welcome to the Official Website of the Building Security Council

Enhancing Public Safety by Promoting Building Security

Security is always one of the critical aspects of running a business. While many professionals focus on physical security or security through architecture or engineering, a truly high-level security requires a professional to zero in on all aspects of security. As a result, the Building Security Council (BSC) was born.

Our Mission

The mission of the Building Security Council is to administer and maintain rating systems that enable building owners and operators to evaluate and improve the contracted security guard companies of their facilities. Our vision is to enhance public safety by promoting building security.

The BSC goals include the following:

  • To increase awareness and acceptance of design and operation criteria for building security
  • To encourage innovation in building security
  • To establish and maintain viable building security rating system
  • To advocate security education by promoting certification of individuals
  • To sustain the operations of the BSC through sound business practices

Over the years, many building owners and management companies have been asking us to recommend security companies in New York for them to use. Below we will list a few preferred firms who provide physical security guard services throughout NYC.
