Risk Assessment and Mitigation

Threats today can range from petty theft and vandalism to organized crime or even terrorism. Although we like to assume that everything possible is being done to prevent these threats from being carried out, those with responsibility for the safety and welfare of employees or the general public must consider the possible scenarios where these threats could play out and plan to establish appropriate protection within a realistic budget.

Ensuring the safety of people and property and business continuity must be the top security priorities for any public or private organization and M.I.P. Security specializes in analyzing, planning and implementing cost-effective solutions to meet the challenge of today's wide range of threats.

While it is not possible to guarantee the prevention of a threat being carried out, it is possible to determine the outcome of any anticipated threat and therefore minimize the impact. By using a methodology that analyses risk and assigns scores and weights to likely outcomes, M.I.P. Security builds up a picture of the vulnerabilities at any site and then priorities tasks in a protection project. Furthermore, where multiple sites are involved, this methodology provides an invaluable consolidated view of the protection requirements across different demographic and geographic areas.

A threat and risk analysis is a tool that will enable us to answer the following questions:

  • Which threats are relevant to your facility and how seriously they should be taken?
  • For each threat, what the risks are to your people, buildings and business continuity?
  • Where the vulnerabilities are in your buildings, technology and procedures?
  • In what priority the vulnerabilities should be addressed?
  • Perfect vs. Practical protection – How to improve protection with a limited budget?
  • Are your emergency procedures adequate and relevant for current threats?
  • Could nearby buildings be considered at risk and if so, how will this affect the safety and security of your building and its occupants.

The vulnerability assessment diagram which is created as part of the project visually represents the risks and threats and is a key tool for determining priorities.

The threat & risk analysis report is able to relate to a compound or group of buildings where the cost of fully protecting every individual building is prohibitive. By relating to the compound as a whole, a threat and risk analysis project allows the highest risk problem areas to be identified and addressed.
