Risk & Crisis Communications

As part of our Emergency Incident Management work, we also provide risk and crisis communication training and exercise support to clients. Your response to Crisis Incidents can be severely hampered by poor or delayed communications. In protecting the interests of corporate clients, our associates will be part of your response program, or prepare your staff and executives to conduct the management of your crisis and risk response practices. This includes pre-incident threat assessment and developing appropriate message mapping as well as streamlining the communications plan for your entity.

Facility Vulnerability Assessments

Our investigators, working closely with businesses, facility managers and property owners, can run site surveys and gap analysis reports assessing individual venue and facilities vulnerability. These outcomes shall be the risk assessment report inclusive of proposed mitigation and containing actions with corrective and protective measures against any residual risks. This includes challenges to intrusion, interior safety gap analysis, fire protection and evacuation issues, as well as compliance with local fire codes and applications. Our assessments include evaluation of the site to modern threats based on the type and profile of facility or business.

Interventions proposed can span from interventions to the building itself, including core facilities protection, to improving active and passive security systems, and may also include specific environmental and electronic monitoring of the whole Venue/facility to run the protection of sensitive areas.

Assessment includes utilizing hard and soft rings and perimeter monitoring measures for setting up the best in practice timely response to residual risks and foreseeable external threats.

We don’t end our relationship at the formal report. Our follow up to the list of improvement recommendations includes re-inspections to insure the work is completed appropriately. We also will design site specific emergency exercises to evaluate your current emergency procedures for identified risks. We will evaluate your policies or assist with a complete development of emergency procedures and staff training toward those procedures. Ongoing annual training programs, from simple annual training to regular exercises are also available.
