SIA spoke with Scott Bakka, president of TriFecta Security Solutions, about the company, the security industry and working with SIA.
Tell us the story of your company.
SB: I had always wanted to start my own security consulting company. I retired from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) in 2020 as chief of the Security and Emergency Programs Division after 30+ years of federal service. I started TriFecta Security Solutions in 2020 with the goal of building relationships and forming long-term partnerships with other organizations and assisting them in providing solutions to their security issues. TriFecta Security Solutions is also a veteran-owned small business.
What solutions/services does your business offer in the security industry? And what makes your offerings/company unique?
SB: TriFecta Security Solutions specializes in providing risk assessments, security system planning/design, project management, security management and workplace violence prevention planning. My focus is on workplace violence prevention planning. With ATF I was tasked with creating a Workplace Violence Response Group. This group would get together anytime there was a threat against an employee and was tasked with coming up with recommendations and solutions to the threat. The solutions helped alleviate some of the stress of the employees and their families in a very stressful situation. I assist organizations in establishing their own workplace violence prevention plans. TriFecta Security Solutions provides unique solutions to specific issues with an emphasis on providing the best customer service possible.
What is something we might not know about your company – or something new you are doing in security?
SB: I have taken a grant writing course in order to assist houses of worship and other nonprofits, who may not have grant writers on staff, to apply for federal security grants.
What does SIA offer that is most important to you/your company? And what do you most hope to get out of your membership with SIA?
SB: I have had the opportunity to take courses that were provided by SIA, and I thought the training was excellent. In addition, the resources provided to members have been a big asset. I hope to enhance my network of peers by developing additional relationships. Networking is a crucial component to any successful business.
