THREAT AND VULNERABLY ASSESSMENTS

Our strategic approach addresses the security detail from every angle to mitigate risk and vulnerability. 

Our comprehensive threat and vulnerability assessments are essential for you to operate within a secure organisation. 

We advocate efficient security strategies start with a precise knowledge of your risks and shortcomings. We can help you analyse your strengths and weaknesses in every scenario, from asset and site security to executive protection. We bring decades of experience to our work and our team of security industry leading experts help you identify real time threats

Regardless of any current internal risk identification we apply a template whereby we look at:

  • Current risk exposure and any historical security incidents to identify potential trend vulnerabilities not identified

  • Screen current key individuals for critical insights and information about situations, policies and procedures

  • Establish a gap analysis to isolate and treat areas of concern, inclusive of industry best practice measures.

  • Develop Solutions and produce guidance to implement corrective measures.

We benchmark your appetite and commercial positioning as an organisation against physical security risks, like terrorism, workplace violence, competitor espionage and data theft

At Valeré we specialise in infrastructure, data and physical and corporate security services.

This expertise enables our team to establish the onset of any particular threat, prioritise your mitigating actions, recommend appropriate security and work with your team to implement the appropriate solutions.

INTERNAL AUDIT

We have the defined skill-sets to highlight your weaknesses and security gaps that may exist throughout your organisation. We are passionate about addressing non-compliance metrics to establish an defined security program.
Our security audit is designed to assesses how effectively your organisation’s policies are being delivered, applied and measured for performance. Our audits demonstrate where non-conformance exist in your current security systems and procedures.
With over 30 years of experience, we have seen countless reasons for noncompliance with existing security procedures.  
We have the industry specific resources to uncover where weaknesses and security gaps exist throughout your organisation and identify current noncompliance issues. We are simply not here to identify the problems, we need to help you establish a balanced and efficient security risk management program that allows measurement at all levels and an increase in performance outputs. This exercise can be especially beneficial after an acquisition for streamlining policies and procedures relating to operational output.
Our security audits can also be important in internal investigations when irregularities are discovered, or negligence is suspected. We are acutely aware that any of our findings must stand up in a court of law.

POLICY AND PROCEDURE DEVELOPMENT

We can develop security policies tailored to the precise risks you are faced with—all within the framework of laws and regulations of each country you operate within.

Given the complexity of most large organisations, developing effective security programs can be an overwhelming job. As a significant practitioner in physical and corporate security, we can support you to generate effective integrated security policies and procedures that close the areas of concern that might otherwise expose your organisation to a more significant risk.

A tailored and robust security program must cover many criteria and clearly define the roles, responsibilities and expectations for everyone in and supporting your organisation—from the security department to management and employees as well as the supply chain and business continuity partners. Taking a managed approach, we can review your current security policies to ensure they cover your current risks and vulnerabilities.


Security Policy Development Best Practices and Customised Applications

If you find your current policies are unsatisfactory or unproductive we can develop  a strategy to the precise risk you face—all within the legal governance and regulations of each country in which you operate. Depending on your scope, we can assist with either comprehensive security programs or individual components, such as access control, pre-employment background checks, workplace violence prevention or executive protection.
