We understand that International Executives face increasingly complex
security concerns, and so we offer a bespoke service accordingly.
All our Close Protection Officers are former members of UK Special Forces,
are licensed, and meet Security Industry Authority (SIA) criteria. They can
be deployed individually or as part of a team. Their expertise includes travel
management, logistical planning, crisis management, emergency coordination – and
perhaps most importantly, discretion.
Our teams are trained in gathering specialist intelligence
and have many years’ experience of domestic and international
operations in the most challenging environments. They never
make assumptions reporting only the hard facts.
Professional and sophisticated countermeasures provide
the ability to confirm or deny the presence of any
unwanted attention in a relatively short period of time.
Our areas of expertise include:
Points of Interest | Facilities | Assets | Kidnap and Ransom
Pattern of Life | Personal Financial Threats | Insurance Loss Adjustment
We have the knowledge, experience and high standards needed to
work safely within the off-shore and energy industries.
Drawing on many years of operational counter terrorism experience
gained in both land and maritime contexts, we provide a complete
protection and risk management service.
We work in accordance with Industry Health and Safety
standards, and tailor our services to the specific needs of
each client. We can help with:
Operational Planning/SOP’s | Corporate Security Plans and Policies
Travel Management and Tracking | Hostile Environment Training
Our information and intelligence service – known as
'Veritas Insights' – provides ethically sourced and rigorously
analysed assessments. The team is made up of former diplomats,
government and corporate analysts, with expertise in banking, the extraction
industry and political risk. Their reports inform areas such as
market entry investment decisions and staff security measures
in challenging commercial environments. And with in-depth
coverage of Africa, the Middle East and Central and South Asia,
they combine detailed in-country reporting with original research.
We provide clients with a Travel Advice and Crisis Response (TACR) service,
to inform them of specific conditions that may affect their safety and security abroad.
In addition, our risk advisory service gives clients a comprehensive understanding of the
operational and strategic risks they may face in new or emerging markets
and challenging locations. We work closely with our clients to mitigate the risks identified.
Our highly-qualified teams come from a range of backgrounds, including intelligence agencies,
UK Special Forces, finance and academia. Their expertise range from country-specific
analysis to global risk forecasting, and they work with private clients and international organisations.
Here are some of our services:
Security Analysis and Threat Assessments | Due Diligence | Business Intelligence
Political Risk Assessments | GIS Risk Mapping | Strategic Forecasting | Focused Strategic Analysis
International Executives face increasingly complex security challenges,
including extortion, abduction, corporate espionage and terrorism.
These risks have the potential to inflict significant damage to business,
personnel and professional reputation. And yet, most companies are unprepared to
manage a crisis. We will work with your company to establish a corporate crisis
plan with clearly defined boundaries and responsibilities.
Our consultants are highly experienced in carrying out bespoke,
detailed security surveys. We work all over the world for clients
in government, industry, insurance companies and private individuals.
Our surveys range from initial assessments to detailed examinations
of corporate headquarters and remote, high-value facilities.
We identify security risks and provide comprehensive,
actionable and affordable recommendations for mitigating risk.
Here are some of the areas we consider in our surveys:
Physical Security | Risks to Personnel and Assets
Contingency and Emergency Response Planning
Veritas' in-house GIS cell utilises ESRI's ArcGIS platform to produce unique, client specific maps. Spacial Analysis is how we understand our world – mapping where points of interest are, how they relate to one another and what it actually means.
Our heat maps visually identify clusters of activity, in this case insecurity. Detecting and quantifying patterns in data can be used to find hot spots and analyse changes in patterns overtime.
Putting the world in context by understanding where something is or occurs. Geocoding data, putting it on a map, will help you visulise and understand your data and or footprint or help you select future direction.
Where is the next point of insecurity? How can we influence its causes in order to better protect our people and asserts? "All politics is local", so said Tip O'Neil: Veritas' Predictive Analysis service creates a multi- layered map, based on historical GIS data augmented with unique research and analysis, that informs the decision making process.

Veritas will overlay your data on top of world imagery, streets, topographic maps, ocean base maps and bespoke data sets in order to give you a fresh, unique perspective. Our ArcGIS system has an archive of base maps in multiple cartographic styles designed to emphasise different views of the world.
