We provide essential consultancy to clients: to map their security needs, guide them towards the right solutions and assist with their implementation.

Our clients ask us to help them develop systems and processes to protect their staff, assets and investments against a wide range of sophisticated adversaries. We work with clients to build threat intelligence and risk models that identify areas of vulnerability, and to design and implement protective measures.

Our security experts have acted on behalf of a diverse client base on matters that include security planning, site portfolio reviews, security surveys and penetration tests, training and intelligence programme development, expert testimony and post-incident investigation. In each case we adopt a threat intelligence-led approach, leveraging the global reach of our source network and local security resources to deliver the best outcome for our client.

Setting new standards

Following a substantial desktop security risk assessment of its entire global site and supply chain portfolio, we assisted a multinational manufacturer of hazardous chemicals to benchmark its anti-terrorism stance against international standards and its sector peer group.

Risk Advisory’s expert Security Consultancy team surveyed several of our client’s locations and routes. We identified gaps and developed a tiered set of in-house security standards emphasising intelligence-led principles, the adaptation of existing physical controls, as well as security management enhancements. Working closely with the client, we set out the steps necessary to achieve a comprehensive programme of change, including identifying the necessary financial investment.

Expert advice in a legal dispute

An energy services company engaged us to act as independent expert witnesses in a legal dispute concerning a historical declaration of force majeure in Yemen. Faced with a deteriorating security environment, the client had determined to withdraw from its contract, precipitating a dispute with the contracting company, which continued to work at the site.

Our security consulting team was asked to review security at the location to determine its suitability for the local security conditions, and to reconstruct historical intelligence to advise on the contemporary threat. As a result of our evidence, the tribunal found in favour of our client.
