|"A safe and secure working environment is
fundamental to business and organisational success and we seek to
protect our clients’ personnel, physical assets, information and
reputation from harm."
Most organisations need to mitigate risk and plan how best to protect
assets (tangible and intangible), employees and reputation. To generate
timely and cost-effective measures we will work with you to develop an
integrated and practical approach. We provide impartial advice, and aim
to integrate all elements of the security operation, so as to make full
and best use of all available resources. In doing this we seek to
support your organisations' business requirements; balanced against the
specific threats, vulnerabilities, and consequent risks, that you face.
Security/risk management is generally conducted in three stages, and
it is important that an entity has the systems, procedures and
organisation to manage this process. These stages are:
| The Risks Facing our Clients
These can be considered in the following categories:
- Locational Risks – arising from countries or regions where present.
Examples include: level of terrorist
threat, levels of crime (violent crime and corruption), natural
disaster risk, political risk and human rights.
- Business Activity Risks – arising from what a client does. Examples include: supply chain
risks, health and safety and contract-related (e.g. a contract
generating reputational, criminal/terrorist, and/or protest group
- Management Risks – arising from how a client conducts its business.
Examples include: corporate
governance, litigation, IT security/information leak, and corporate
killing and discrimination/class actions.
In understanding our clients’ requirements an organisational review
can be an extremely helpful way of understanding within an organisation:
what is important and potentially at risk, what they have in place and
how they compare with ‘best practice’ – notwithstanding their inherent
culture and approach to risk.
In support of clients our services include (list not exhaustive):
- Strategic organisational reviews.
- Detailed site and system audits.
- Business continuity support.
- Crime prevention advice.
Crisis management planning.
- Evacuation procedures and assistance with task coordination.
We deploy and manage consultants and security operatives on a regular
basis to conduct risk and security reviews, assessments, audits and
protective security assignments across the UK and overseas.
