- Position requires the need to provide specific direction to others with regard to compliance with rules and regulations of the facility, particularly with regard to the entry and exit procedures. The position also requires the ability to take charge and provide clear direction to all visitors and clients employees in the event of a safety or security related situation (i.e. fire or emergency evacuation).
- The ability to quickly and effectively assess and resolve situations which may present a threat to the safety or security of anyone within the Underground facility is paramount.

- The Underground facility at Boyers stores vital records and protects critical assets for both government agencies and private business. Iron Mountain must take proper precautions to ensure that these records and customer critical assets are protected from any malicious act including destruction, compromise or theft. Iron Mountain must also provide a safe environment for all of the facility customers. The Security Officer’s role is critical in providing for both the daily safety of customer employees and the daily security of company assets. Any safety or security issues which are not properly and quickly addressed will have a negative impact on both Iron Mountain and customer operations.
- The uniformed and armed Security Officer may be one of the first Iron Mountain employees many external customers and underground tenants encounter. The demeanor, appearance and professional attitude that the Security Officer displays with customers, clients or visitors will significantly impact their initial impression of Iron Mountain.

- Security Officers have daily interaction with all individuals who enter the Underground facility, including customer employees, visitors and clients. The Security Officer must maintain a professional demeanor and interact with these individuals in a polite yet direct manner, providing clear instructions and alleviating any confusion regarding policies and procedures.
