Our trainings can encompass broad points of view to narrow solution-oriented presentations to meet the challenges of specific business units. We work with institution to understand their needs and what training they need, then customize presentations around the staff, facility and risk. Our work is tailored directly to each client for those purposes.
Our global presence and roster of in-house subject matter experts from law enforcement and corporate security, prosecutors, and including graduate school educators, allow us to work effectively in any market. Our offices can also support local or transnational needs to understand, accommodate and integrate cultural nuances related to sites in different locations. It’s our goal to help our clients reduce risk through effective security training.
Some of the areas of concentration is as follows:
Comprehensive threat and vulnerability assessments are essential to securing your organization. Our multidisciplinary approach looks at security from every angle to mitigate risks — from the physical environment to the human element to the role of technology.
Effective security starts with a clear understanding of your vulnerabilities. We can help you gauge your strengths and weaknesses in a wide variety of scenarios, from facility security to executive protection. Not only do we bring decades of experience to our assessments, our leading experts can also help you anticipate potential sources of new threats.
Our vulnerability assessment methodology begins with an in-depth security review. No matter the focus of your assessment, we apply a time-tested methodology where we look at current areas of exposure and any past security incidents in order to identify potential vulnerabilities. This enables our team to determine the likelihood of any particular threat, prioritize action plans, recommend appropriate security measures, and implement solutions when necessary.
Do you have policies and procedures that cover risks like workplace violence, bomb threats, active shooters or natural disasters? How about executive protection or travel to high-risk areas? How do you know if current procedures will be sufficient or effective?
Given the complexity of most organizations, developing effective security programs can be an overwhelming job. As a world leader in physical, cyber, and corporate security, we can help you create security policies and procedures that work together to close the gaps that might otherwise expose your organization to greater risks.
An effective security program must cover many scenarios and clearly define the duties and expectations for everyone in your organization – from the security department to management and employees as well as third parties like local emergency responders and business continuity partners. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, we can review your current security policies to ensure they cover your current risks and vulnerabilities.
Security measures are of little use if they are not enforced. A security audit assesses how effectively your organization’s security policies are being implemented. Our audits will show you where gaps and vulnerabilities might exist in your current systems and procedures.
We have seen countless reasons for noncompliance with existing security procedures. Sometimes employees bypass measures for the sake of convenience or if they feel they can be more productive without them. Other times, there is a resistance to change or just forgetfulness or carelessness. Multinational companies and those with multiple facilities can find it especially challenging to ensure there is system-wide compliance with security procedures.
With our global footprint, we have the resources to not only uncover where weaknesses and security gaps exist throughout your organization, but also what issues are driving that noncompliance. We can then help you establish a balanced and effective security risk management program that you can be comfortable and confident with. This exercise can be especially beneficial after an acquisition for standardizing policies and procedures.
Our security audits can also play an important role in internal investigations when anomalies are discovered or wrongdoing is suspected. You can use our findings for not only any potential litigation/legal proceedings, but also to strengthen your internal controls to mitigate future problems.
