Security risk assessment and consultancy

Understanding the most appropriate security measures for your office building and workplace is often a complex process. In order to make the very best decision an organization will need to carefully balance the various security risks and available measures, against cost.

MCS works with organizations to help them improve their corporate resilience through a dedicated security risk assessment, enhancing both security and business continuity programmes.

Optimizing the balance between risk and cost

There are numerous threats that can negatively affect people and assets, such as natural disasters, hazardous materials, malicious activities, industrial espionage, violence and theft – and there are even more ways to detect, prevent or mitigate security threats.

Our security management consultants support you with a risk management strategy that finds the right balance between acceptable risk and total cost of security.

“The real security risk is the one you don’t know you have”

A risk management strategy provides a structured approach to identifying, assessing and managing risk. It’s an improvement cycle that incorporates regular reviews and updates based on the outcome of actions taken and new developments:
