We can help you

Increase security and resilience

Improve your ability to pre-empt, manage and respond to your most critical risks - from geopolitical, to cyber, to supply chain issues.

Our clients repeatedly tell us that they feel the world is becoming more volatile.

We work with our clients to enhance their security posture and resilience to an array of potential threats, from cyber attacks, natural disasters, or an outbreak in hostilities,  as well as to support them for in the event something does go wrong.

We do this through providing pragmatic, actionable advice and recommendations. Our offering includes tailored threat and risk assessments; benchmarking and gap analysis; plan and policy review and development; bespoke training and workshops; site security reviews; executive lifestyle reviews; penetration testing; and pre-employment due diligence.

Security Strategy Development

Dealing with uncertain and unpredictable threats requires strategy, not just activity. We work closely with clients to understand their risk and chart out how they can effectively protect their organisations.

View summary

Our consultants promote a risk-led approach to protecting personnel, operations, assets and reputation for our clients. We prioritise aligning to best practice international risk management standards such as ISO31000: Risk management and ISO28000: Supply chain resilience.

We have access to some of the most comprehensive terrorism and political violence datasets available and utilize the latest data mining and social media analytics to detect incidents. This data is used to conduct threat assessments which identifies threat actors and assesses which risk scenarios could feasibly affect our client.

Risk analysis then ensures that the risk scenarios identified have been evaluated in comparison to the nature of the client’s assets to be protected. The final step, risk evaluation, assesses the likelihood of a risk materialising based on threat intent and capability, target attractiveness and protection measures in place.

A robust risk-led security strategy considers how the following areas should interact to provide ongoing protection:

  • Intelligence/community information collection and analysis.
  • Physical security measures.
  • Mobile security measures, close protection and journey management.
  • Emergency response plans.
  • Evacuation planning.
  • Technical security measures.
  • Liaison with military and security forces.
