ABOVE GROUND RISK PLANNING (AGRP): creates baseline assessment and charts road-map to reach optimal levels of risk mitigation. This uses on ground project assessment, scenario planning, critical asset vulnerability register, gap analysis and threat matrix development to build a pragmatic risk solution plan, that we define as our Risk Solution Ramp.

STAKEHOLDER MAPPING, MONITORING & MANAGEMENT (SᵌM): provincial and local level research via independent soundings allows objective mapping and advisory on key actors, stakeholder influence, critical above ground issues and potential impacts.

LOSS PREVENTION (LP): Leverage of security systems, control mechanisms, GPS tracking, incident analysis, local crime syndicate modus operandi research for high-value asset protection, internal shrinkage reduction and distribution chain integrity.

ABOVE GROUND RISK MANAGEMENT (AGRM): via embedded advisors the planning for and active management of risks. At the highest level the capacity to provide outsourced project security management function, on an interim or long-term basis. When necessary can include small team task-forces for particular problems, such as illegal mining, strike action, fuel theft or pipeline tapping.

EARLY WARNING SYSTEM (EWS): via gap analysis and workshops the design & delivery of advance warning EWS tool. This validates and fuses any existing departmental information sources with external inputs to alert on and resolve issues before they snowball. This includes leveraging grievance redress mechanisms with best in class social media monitoring tools to track pressure points and triggers to watch. Utilises a ‘one team’ approach to leverage synergies between Operations, Security, Government Affairs, HR, Procurement, HSE and CSR.

SECURITY TEAM & RESILIENCE ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM: via contingency planning & preparation. To include crisis management reviews, workshops and capacity building for local management and security teams. Creation of or enhancement of documentation to include master security plans, procedures (SOPs), guard post orders, alert levels, contingency plans and emergency committee actions.

JOURNEY RISK MANAGEMENT: Use of travel security techniques, area & route briefs, training handbooks and tracking to ensure safety and security of executives visiting from abroad as well as work-force employees to and from the project site.

SECURITY SYSTEM DESIGN: via security infrastructure blueprint creation and review the creation of effective, compliant and sustainable security infrastructure. This includes advisory on ensuring access control, barriers, fences & CCTV devices are fit for purpose and leveraging technology options. As objective experts, we assist in ensuring a good balance between quality, durability, and cost.

VULNERABILITY REDUCTION:  audit of internal hazards and points of vulnerability particularly when facing organized strike action and other risks from within such as aggrieved individuals.

TRAINING: local capacity building of management in Early Warning System (EWS) tools & concepts. Technical training support for security supervisors, manned guard teams, as well as area security forces in elements such as Human Rights.
