All of life is the management of risk, not it’s elimination.
The successful running of a business is reliant upon people and technology. Any business can experience an incident or crisis that can prevent the organisation from continuing normal business operations.
Through the correct levels of Risk Management, Emerald Solutions Group Business Continuity Management (BCM) consultants advise your organisation how to recover from such incidents in the minimum amount of time possible, this requires careful preparation and planning involving representatives from all facets of your operation.
Risk Management Division
Emerald Solutions Group has a specialised Risk Management Division that focuses on multiple sectors and specializations:
Operational Risk Assessments
Education Sector Risk
OPERATIONAL RISK ASSESSMENTS
Emerald provides tailored risk assessments developing a detailed analysis of threats and risks associated with logistics and movement across the globe. The detailed insight provides enhanced situational awareness on potential physical and cyber-related risks to operations and safety. Emerald draws on its decades of experience conducting intelligence-driven assessments across the spectrum of operating and risk environments and employs the most rigorous tradecraft to deliver the most actionable insight for executive decision making. Emerald Risk Assessments identify, assess, and qualify risk across threat categories necessary for the clearest picture of risk to personnel, operations, and potential loss.
Emerald approaches each Risk Assessment with a thorough threat landscape analysis while experienced analysts comb through recent incidents and indicators of the potential risk to an operational area of interest.
