There are a number of risk assessment models that we produce from initial assessments to fully detailed with supporting reports such as security surveys, gender & conflict reports and specific product analysis.  Factors such as location, group, work-type, gender, cultural & tribal, economic and predictive analysis contribute to a detailed product that will act as a basis for intelligent and practical solutions.  We create daily, weekly and monthly intelligence reports giving a detailed overview of your preferred location.

Our threat modelling uses a holistic set of methods incorporating physical, digital, psychosocial and gender factors.  Initially, the types of threats are identified and coded.  The protagonist stakeholders and actors are identified along with the threatened groups and locations.  Once the data has been processed then a safety and response plan is developed that supports the appropriate group and location.

Business Risk, Media Risk, NGO Risk & Security Survey Risk Management

I worked in Tokyo and on a couple of occasions, experienced some unnerving tremors. I dashed to reception with my ‘grab and go’ bag, a well equipped ‘bum bag’ (fanny pack to our US colleagues) and began to assess the situation. Others appeared and noted my bag, asking “Should we have our bags too?” I showed them the content of mine and their faces were of realisation that they were completely unprepared for what might have been. I strongly recommend all of SEPAR’s training and advice….it could just save your life!
