SOME OF OUR MOST FREQUENTLY REQUESTED SECURITY CONSULTING SERVICES INCLUDE:

SECURITY VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENTS
A SECURITY VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT WILL ESSENTIALLY PROVIDE YOUR COMPANY WITH A ROADMAP TO IMPLEMENT A SUCCESSFUL SECURITY PROGRAM. THE ASSESSMENT IS BASED ON THE INTERRELATIONSHIP OF THREE KEY FACTORS: PERSONNEL, PROCEDURAL AND PHYSICAL SECURITY MEASURES.

THIS SERVICE IS IDEAL FOR ORGANIZATIONS WITH DECENTRALIZED, FRAGMENTED OR NO SECURITY INFRASTRUCTURE. THIS REPORT DEFINES THE STRUCTURE OF RISK CONTROL, INCLUDING A DEFINITION OF RECOMMENDED PROGRAMS AND PROCESSES TO SAFEGUARD THE ORGANIZATION.

SECURITY INFRASTRUCTURE ASSESSMENTS
IN MOST ORGANIZATIONS, RISK MANAGEMENT AND INTERNAL CONTROL ACTIVITIES ARE NUMEROUS AND FRAGMENTED. THIS LACK OF ALIGNMENT AND COORDINATION CAN RESULT IN OVERLAPS OR GAPS IN RISK MITIGATION COVERAGE. THROUGH OUR SECURITY INFRASTRUCTURE ASSESSMENT, UNITED RISK INTERNATIONAL CAN HELP COMPANIES IDENTIFY AND UNDERSTAND THE MISALIGNMENTS, CHALLENGES, AND IMPROVEMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN THEIR RISK AND SECURITY FRAMEWORKS. WE CONDUCT GAP ANALYSIS USING INDUSTRY STANDARDS AND BEST PRACTICES AS THE FOUNDATION TO PROVIDE A CLEAR DEFINITION OF FOCUS AREAS AND EFFORTS THAT HELP MANAGEMENT DRIVE INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS THAT MITIGATE RISK AND ENHANCE OVERALL PERFORMANCE.

THIS SERVICE IS IDEAL FOR ORGANIZATIONS WITH EXISTING PROGRAMS IN PLACE THAT REQUIRE VALIDATION OF CURRENT PROCESSES. IT ALSO APPLIES TO COMPANIES THAT REQUIRE INTEGRATION AS A RESULT OF A MERGER. THIS PROCESS ESTABLISHES ANY LEAKS THROUGH A GAP ANALYSIS AND RECOMMENDS SOLUTIONS FOR GREATER EFFICIENCY BASED ON INDUSTRY STANDARDS, COMPLIANCE DRIVERS AND BEST PRACTICES.

FACILITY ASSESSMENTS & AUDITS
EACH FACILITY HAS UNIQUE RISKS BASED ON THE NATURE OF THE BUSINESS BEING CONDUCTED AND ITS LOCATION. UNDERSTANDING YOUR FACILITY'S EXPOSURE IS THE FIRST STEP IN MITIGATING LOSS. A FACILITY RISK ASSESSMENT EVALUATES EXISTING SECURITY AND SAFETY MEASURES AND IDENTIFIES SECURITY HAZARDS, THREATS AND VULNERABILITIES. OBSERVATIONS ARE PRESENTED TO EXPLAIN RELEVANCE, AND COUNTERMEASURES ARE SUGGESTED FOR THE PROTECTION OF BUSINESS PROCESSES, EMPLOYEES, VISITORS, COMPANY ASSETS AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

THIS SERVICE IS IDEAL FOR ORGANIZATIONS LOOKING TO IDENTIFY PHYSICAL SECURITY VULNERABILITIES AT ITS FACILITY(S), WHETHER AT A NEW OR EXISTING LOCATION. IT ALSO APPLIES TO A COMPANY THAT NEEDS TO AUDIT A FACILITY AND COMPARE AGAINST EXISTING STANDARDS OR A COMPANY WHO NEEDS AN ASSESSMENT OF THE FACILITY TO DETERMINE THE RISKS IN ORDER TO CREATE NEW STANDARDS. A UNITED RISK INTERNATIONAL CONSULTANT WILL CREATE THE ACTUAL STANDARDS.
