The problem

A major rights holder sought Control Risks’ support for the FIFA 2019 Women’s World Cup.

Our solution

Control Risks provided threat monitoring and updates during all stages of the client’s operations throughout the lead-up to and during the event. Updates concerned protests/civil unrest, strikes, terrorism and crime across all nine French host cities as well as at the national level. The monitoring provided actionable information and analysis on concluded incidents and upcoming safety threats as well as operational disruptions.

Our Results

The updates provided practical, actionable advice for the client’s personnel to follow, and our analysts worked directly with the client’s own intelligence-gathering resources on a daily basis to support operations with on-the-ground insight and local expertise. Supported by our risk monitoring and security expertise, the client had a successful event with no major incidents.
