Seattle's Leading Independent Security Consultant Since 1985

For Businesses and Organizations


Silva Consultants is an independent security consulting firm that helps businesses and organizations to better manage their security risks, reduce losses, and to provide a safe and secure workplace for employees.


We help you to implement security strategies that are aligned with your organization's mission and values, resulting in a security program that supports rather than interferes with the operation of your business.


Let us show you ways in which you can:

  • Find the right balance between security and convenience.

  • Provide security in a way that respects the unique culture of your organization.

  • Make employees, customers, and guests feel safer and more secure.

  • Reduce losses due to burglary, vandalism, pilferage and theft.

  • Keep from spending money on security equipment that won’t really solve your problems.

  • Reduce ongoing security operating costs by using fewer security guards.

  • Have your security program add value to your organization's bottom line.

  • Keep your facility safe and secure without making it look like a fortress.

We specialize in helping companies and organizations that don't have a security department or security manager on staff. We help non-security professionals to create and operate effective security programs that allow security to be managed without having a dedicated security department.

For organizations that do have a security department, we provide an objective outside look at the way that security is presently managed, as well as provide services that can supplement and enhance the capabilities of your in-house security management team.

For Apartment Buildings, Condominiums, and Private Residences


Silva Consultants helps property managers, homeowners associations, and individual residents to properly assess their security risks and to develop cost effective strategies for the protection of their property.


Trying to decide how much security you need or what types of security systems that you should buy? Concerned that the recommendations that you have been getting from security equipment sellers or guard companies may not be in your best interests? Silva Consultants can help.
