Security and Intelligence Programmes
How intelligence and data strengthens your security operations
In the ever-changing risk landscape, informed and responsible risk-taking is crucial for any ambitious organisation. Our security and intelligence programmes help organisations manage risk and seize new opportunities.
Control Risks’ security and intelligence programmes are tailored to your organisation. Every organisation and risk environment are unique. We have developed local networks that extend across government, industry and civil society in over 170 countries.
Our expert teams of security specialists understand and appreciate the critical importance of the assets you are seeking to protect—people, property, products, operations, and reputation. We evaluate your specific threats, exposures, vulnerabilities, strengths and goals to support informed decisions and develop customised programmatic solutions.
Our risk assessment approach is rooted in industry standards and decades of practical experience across different markets. We bring data to bear on complex problems but never lose sight of the need for human insight and expertise. We support our clients at every level of their organisations, from project site managers to regional security officers to global security operations centres (GSOCs).

Staffing and training
As part of their drive to introduce technology into security risk management, many corporate security teams are assessing internal and external technology options.
The pandemic showed that companies need effective data analysis and monitoring to better plan for and manage crises and disruptions to business continuity.
The Control Risks Americas team answers frequently asked questions and concerns from US and Canada-based companies as they begin to look beyond the pandemic and re-assess their approach to risk management.
