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.Contact us
Effective security starts with a clear understanding of your vulnerabilities. We can help you gauge your strengths and weaknesses in various scenarios, from facility security to executive protection. We bring decades of experience to our assessments and our leading experts 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 to identify potential vulnerabilities
- Interview employees and other key individuals for critical insights and information about situations, policies and procedures
- Provide a gap analysis to isolate areas, where your security program does not meet industry best practices
- Make recommendations and guide you in implementing measures to mitigate any areas of vulnerability to reduce your risk
Are you, your organization, staff and infrastructure prepared for physical security risks, like terrorism, workplace violence, corporate espionage and theft?
Since facility and company security must be addressed at several levels, the most productive approach requires multidisciplinary expertise, which our security professionals possess. Their specialties include infrastructure, information, physical and corporate security services.
This expertise enables our team to determine the likelihood of any particular threat, prioritize action plans, recommend appropriate security measures and implement solutions, when necessary.
Case Study – Security Risk Assessment of Resort and Gaming Complex
Kroll was engaged by a large resort and gaming complex in Asia just after terrorist attacks at several hotels killed numerous local civilians and tourists. The risk level was extremely high for a period, and concerns were raised as to whether the resort complex had robust enough security measures to address the potential of future attacks. Business leaders perceived that a further attack involving their resort would be catastrophic for their business and to the country’s economy.
Kroll conducted a review of existing security measures, including access controls, guard force levels, security policies and procedures and incident response measures. We completed a threat and vulnerability assessment and identified the gaps between existing security measures and the potential threats. We made recommendations covering improvements to security systems, guard force operations and security policy and procedures to enable existing sites and future developments would be standardized as part of an effective security strategy.
The client was able to minimize the risk to their existing properties and resorts portfolio from further terrorist attacks and use their security posture to market to clients and tourists as a differentiator in the marketplace.
