Threat Assessment

The first stage of risk assessment is the systematic identification of the credible hazards. These threats must then be consistently analysed against a scale to determine relative likelihood, consequences, and the vulnerability of your business and staff.

Our assessments and solutions are firmly grounded and based on realistic analysis of threats. We won’t waste time on simplistic scaremongering about the possibility of terrorism or natural disaster. We do endeavour to encompass all aspects of threat, including environment, economic stability, and business continuity, as well intangibles such as corporate reputation or activist agendas.

The impact of these factors on People, Property, Information, and Reputation must all be considered in the context of both micro and macro risks. The process must determine a spectrum of threats from small, pinpoint issues to generic sector-wide hazards. This might encompass fraud opportunities, industrial espionage, corruption, and external regulations.
