Wilson James adds Risk Advisory Service to portfolio

WilsonJames-RiskService-20Wilson James has launched its new Risk Advisory Service division, which has been designed to support customers improve their risk and threat management, via practical, bespoke solutions for corporate clients, private individuals and families.

The Risk Advisory Service will comprise four distinct functions:

  • Security Consultancy
  • Intelligence
  • Protection/Bodyguard Services
  • Training

The company highlights that these functions can be used either alone or together, helping them to provide a single point of contact for all types of security.

In order to provide bespoke solutions, the Security 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. Expert support from Wilson James will range 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, assures the company.

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, online social media investigations and other innovative strategies.

To complement these other activities, the company’s training service offers a selection of courses delivered by its specialist 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, commented: “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. Our Risk Advisory Service helps set us apart and is a valuable addition to our existing range of specialist security services. We will continue to develop this offering to meet the ever changing needs of our clients and achieve our strategic objective of being a complete end-to-end security solutions provider.”
