Control Risks helps your organisation prepare for, respond to and recover from a wide variety of disruptive events. Our focus is on protecting people, reputation, assets and operations in a compliant and value enhancing manner.


Readiness and resilience

When a disruptive incident or crisis occurs, we focus on five key areas:

  • Protecting your people and their families along other stakeholders and the communities in which your organisation operates
  • Safeguarding your reputation, key assets and other core interests
  • Ensuring that business operations continue uninterrupted, regardless of location
  • Achieving compliance with standards and regulatory requirements
  • Safeguarding your financial position through risk management and planning

Risk assessment monitoring

A key component of being ready for crises and incidents is the clear identification, understanding and management of the risks that pose the greatest threat to your organisation's operations, reputation and brand.

Control Risks leverages its deep expertise and global risk analyst team to help your organisation better understand its risk profile, and create and embed monitoring capabilities.

Business impact analysis

Risk assessment and monitoring helps your organisation understand how change in its risk profile could impact the business. This determines response and recovery priorities should one of those risks materialise into a significant disruption or crisis.

As a crisis preparedness provider, we help you to:

  • Better understand your existing and emerging threat profile and take the steps necessary to mitigate risks to an acceptable level before they have a chance of negatively impacting profitability, brand and long-term strategic objectives.
  • Build crisis management, business continuity or resilience programmes that provide the overall platform, team framework, playbooks and communication protocols needed to enable an effective response.
  • Enhance capabilities through creative and realistic crisis training and exercising. These are focussed on ensuring roles and responsibilities are understood and provide forums to practise responding to realistic crisis scenarios in a safe and learning-focused environment.

Our crisis management and business continuity solutions are seamlessly integrated in to your wider risk management strategy to ensure that you are well-placed to maintain competitive advantage by recovering from crises quickly and efficiently.

The Vlad in Vladivostok

The Far Eastern town of Vladivostok, perched on the Sea of Okhotsk, used to only be worth a visit if you were a soldier or a sailor. Being neither, it was with some trepidation that I took the eight-hour overnight flight from Moscow in the depths of winter, and arrived to a balmy -27C.
