Control Risks helps its clients to maintain the integrity of their brands. Even when global markets mean problems such as counterfeiting are cross-border in their nature, our worldwide presence allows us to provide a coordinated international investigation.
We offer both reactive and proactive brand protection services:
- Investigations – in-country enquiries and evidence-gathering, including market surveys, overt and discreet investigations in cooperation with the client’s internal resources
- Intellectual property (IP) security audits – as brands are required to entrust IP to third parties, Control Risks conducts in-depth reviews of external suppliers’ policies, procedures and physical security, assessing them against the standards required by our client
- Supplier due diligence – specialist teams around the world conduct detailed but discreet due diligence investigations into companies and carry out pre-employment screening of key individuals to whom the brand is entrusted
- Supply chain security – because products can be compromised or stolen at any point during the supply chain cycle, Control Risks maintains a virtual Supply Chain Security Team, deploying investigators, security design consultants and maritime and aviation security consultants as necessary
