Creating a workable security strategy



The Hotel Manager

“I want to do everything possible to keep my guests safe”

Recent changes in militant targeting patterns have meant that there has been a sharp rise in the interest in security of businesses operating in retail, hospitality and major events. Where sales are determined by how convivial you are able to make your customers feel, how can you increase the feeling of security without increasing its presence?

 
 

By working with business owners, we’ve developed a solution set that provides confidence in security in a way that signals to customers that their safety is your priority but doesn’t deter them from the experience they are there to enjoy.

Whatever line of business you’re in we aim to understand the unique characteristics which define your success. We identify business drivers and areas of value through consultation and data analysis. We understand external threats through our range of intelligence resources. And we develop an organisation-wide security strategy to protect what matters most to you.

  • From national defence, to engineering or hospitality our people have direct and demonstrable experience of working with most sectors: knowing what makes a sector tick, particular considerations and concerns, and best practice in a sector can mean the difference between success and failure.
    Although the resources we bring to bear on client problems are critical, the data analysis skills to use these technologies effectively are the keystone of much of what we do and we invest heavily in keeping these skills current.
    Many of our people have military and police intelligence backgrounds having worked on highly sensitive and fast-paced operations. We use these skillsets extensively in our work for commercial and governmental clients.
    We have worked extensively with governments and security forces to assist in preparation for major events, including up to international competition and Olympic level — and we are advised by some of the few people who have direct experience in running successful national events.
    Understanding security risk and vulnerability as the starting point in developing an organisational resilience strategy, and developing approaches to solving complex problems, is the specialism of most of our consultants.
    Our commercial experience spanning a wide range of sectors means we work collaboratively with clients to understand exactly where business value lies, making it easier to protect from risk and the shock of crisis.
    We try to take data sets from our clients, relating to anything from incident records to financial performance, in the course of our security strategy consulting engagements to provide direction: we use specialised business intelligence software to look for insights in this data that can help us to intelligently protect business value or national critical assets.
    We make all of our consultants, implementers and responders globally more effective by using specialised collaboration platforms deployed on encrypted devices: this enables them to share and understand information across our organisation more efficiently, increasing quality and decreasing delivery timeframes.
    Our in-house graphic design capability means all of our reports and plans are clean, visual, easy to understand documents that our clients will be con dent sharing with anyone — from employees to senior ministers.
    We have prioritised access to an intimate knowledge of a wide range of international standards, best practice and audit frameworks which inform our security, resilience, national defence and crisis consulting.
    We continuously analyse huge amounts of social media output, up to 50 billion online conversations, with our technology partner to gain real-time and historical intelligence which can complement other types of analysis.
