  • Risk Mitigation Advice

A comprehensive bespoke security risk assessment that provides considerable detail and analysis of a full range of security risks affecting a longer term project or deployment, used to inform project planning of security and medical risks through in-depth, projective analysis.

Each report is created specifically for the client, and the content and subheadings are tailored to ensure key concerns are addressed. The reports are created by AKE’s analytical department with input from Security Risk Specialists from AKE’s training and operations department, including advice on how best to address medical, climatic, travel and military threats, contingency planning and in-country advice.

The writing of the report involves contact with both the regional analyst and security specialists who will assess the strengths and weaknesses of the client’s pre-deployment preparations, in-country security management plans, and threats specific to each individual task. The process forms a key component of the planning stage for deployments to high risk environments.
