Full Scope Vulnerability Surveys.

Working in partnership with you, we rigorously scrutinize every aspect of your clients’ day-to-day operations. We then stress-test their business against our specialist knowledge of criminal tactics. Our expertise encompasses the constantly evolving tactics of both organized syndicates and ‘lone’ assailants, such as cyber intrusion, or physical/armed attack. We carefully identify areas of your client’s operations that may be vulnerable to these threats, exposing their business to harm or disruption.

Address and Correct.

We then issue a detailed report of our findings – and, vitally, our tailored recommendations for correction. This report will outline the exact nature of any vulnerability matched against our realistic and achievable remedies. It is key that we offer bespoke solutions to each client based on their identified vulnerabilities and their available resources and budget as well as the nature of their business.

Specialized Training.

Following our review and feedback, we work directly with your client to remedy specific vulnerabilities through in-depth, customized training. Our Subject Matter Experts (or, in some instances, trusted affiliates) guide your client in making the required corrections with specialist advice, empowering and enabling them to strengthen their security posture and become a more secure organization.
