Security services provider Wilson James has introduced a new business division designed to help its customers improve risk and threat management.
The company's risk advisory service augments its existing capabilities with practical solutions for corporate clients, private individuals and families.
The service comprises four distinct functions - security consultancy, intelligence, protection/bodyguard services and training. These can be used alone or in combination, depending on the specific requirement, and together they bolster the company's proposition as a single point of contact for all types of security.
The consultancy service includes strategic security reviews, the development of corporate security policy and strategy documents, major incident and contingency planning, risk and threat assessments, travel security, and security auditing.
Support provided by Wilson James's experts ranges from a full strategic review and implementation of a transformation strategy through to improving a specific element of an operation. By identifying potential risks - whether personnel, systems, policy or procedure-based - a unique solution can be configured and implemented.
Wilson James' Intelligence service is designed for organisations looking to carry out due diligence in areas such as mergers and acquisitions and the examination of corporate fraud and financial impropriety. Areas of potential risk can be identified through discreet checks on the backgrounds and reputations of companies and individuals.
Other services include threat monitoring and horizon scanning, private investigations and surveillance, with evidence gained through human intelligence, computer forensics, social media investigations and other innovative strategies.
The company's training service offers a selection of courses delivered by its experts. Areas covered include security management, medical, security auditing, fraud prevention, kidnap and ransom response and awareness, strategic security, travel security, and security awareness.
Marc Bannister, operations director - Northern region at Wilson James, said: "The importance of a clearly defined and implemented security strategy cannot be overstated and organisations in all vertical sectors now realise that expert guidance is an invaluable part of this process."
