The Solace Global Risk team has experience across a wide range of business risk support services, assisting organisations worldwide in the management of strategic and operational risk issues. Solace Global has conducted Security Risk Assessments to identify, assess and prioritise the likelihood and impact of risk upon corporate objectives during all phases of customer operations, while designing scalable security solutions to support complex infrastructure programmes; where security architecture, design and emergency response plans are necessary attributes.

Through expert planning, consultancy and intelligence products, Solace provide the information and mitigation advice required to plan a deployment or project, to secure a property or office or to help Sporting Arenas comply with counter terrorism planning requirements and more. Solace have conducted over 1,000 Office, Vessel, Private Residence, Sporting Arenas and Project Site Risk Assessments highlighting potential improvements along with proportionate advice commensurate to the threat. Please scroll down for more information on our areas of consulting.

Solace threat assessments are not limited to simple threat awareness, but we delve into where the risks may arise and why they are considered a risk, such as activist monitoring to ensure the safety of individuals at a company conference and intelligence monitoring for film shoots, documentaries and sporting events. The depth of review will vary from task and location depending on the prevailing risks, importance of the site and readiness of each location in terms of risk mitigation. Each deployed assessment is supported by a detailed desk top risk assessment conducted by the Solace Global Intelligence unit and will be able to identify and map security risks and their associated impacts on the company/ personnel/ community/ legal requirements and making recommendations on how to mitigate these risks.

Solace Risk Assessments

The overall objective of most deployed Risk Assessments are to complete a detailed audit of the physical security and safety measures for the locations to identify threats and resulting operational risk exposures, in order to provide appropriate and effective mitigation and ensure a safe and secure working environment.

Conducting risk assessments is not always the most exciting but is certainly of upmost importance. Whether you are assessing the risk to your travel, office location or building Solace understands the need for a thorough and engaging assessment report.

Consulting Services

Over the past year we have conducted a record number of security assessments on client office locations, high net worth residences, voyages and sporting stadiums. Our intelligence and response teams work to identify a variety of risks that range from having little to severe impact on personnel, assets and reputations

All elements of a layered approach to security and safety are then assessed in detail and recommendations made to ensure these protocols and outputs are met, including reviews of:

  • Physical barriers – natural and man-made.
  • Physical protection – the human element.
  • Safety equipment and plans – Smoke detectors and alarms, extinguishers, clearly marked and usable exits, drilled evacuations and so on.
  • Technology solutions – sensors / CCTV / command and control systems.
  • Software-enabled platforms.
  • Oversight and response from a fully enabled Operations Centre.
  • Related plans and procedures (including rehearsal and training) are identified reviewed and critiqued where appropriate.
