Detail, context and technical expertise
From perspective to stability, execution and recovery
Resolving Critical Issues and Crises
It is profoundly disruptive and potentially traumatic when something happens that strikes at the nervous system of an organisation. Employees, shareholders and stakeholders are all affected. The suspicion of malfeasance, a dispute, or an attack on your systems, assets and people must not create paralysis or rash decisions. A quick, sure-footed response and recovery are vital.
Experience and Expertise
Resolving critical issues and crises is a core part of Control Risks’ DNA, forged over 40 years during which we have helped more than 5500 clients in nearly 150 countries. Whether you are facing a complex crisis in an opaque jurisdiction or an imminent threat to life, we can help you navigate the most difficult of circumstances.
Preparation and readiness underpin the most successful response and recovery strategies, but whatever the situation, Control Risks has the required expertise and experience. Our global specialists include crisis management and security consultants, investigators, protective agents, forensic accountants, cyber incident responders, technology experts, product recall professionals, workplace violence consultants and problem solvers.
Perspective and Stability
When faced with a critical issue or crisis, we establish perspective to help clients understand the dynamics in the relevant jurisdictions. We bring measured, calm and seasoned judgement to the most stressful of situations combined with the ability – honed over decades of practical crisis handling – to lower the emotional temperature and bring order to chaos. We then set the right platform for decision making and ensure the necessary resources are brought to bear before deploying teams to execute the response.
Throughout each stage of our support to clients, Control Risks is thinking about not just the response itself, but the longer term business recovery. We work with you as business returns to normal to assess the response and capitalise on lessons learned to ensure that you emerge stronger.
With the wave of anti-corruption activity in Latin America, how can lawyers best help their companies respond to corruption allegations? For multinational corporations, the implications of this crackdown transcend borders and trigger potential Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations.
Control Risks currently records more incidents of so-called ‘tiger kidnapping’ in Brazil than in any other country around the world, with one case on average every ten days this year.
The Chinese Belt and Road Initiative is an enticing investment opportunity, but security strategies should factor in kidnap risk in some areas.
If your organisation suffers a cyber breach, resolving the business issue is as important as tackling the technical issues.
Often when a critical issue or crisis strikes, it’s for the first time. Understanding the real issues and gaining perspective is key.
Critical issues and crises are much easier to handle if you are fully aware of your risks and threats and have targeted programmes and training.
