Recent high profile events, such as the tragedy that occurred at the Arianna Grande event in London, have further reminded everyone of the importance of event security. Vulnerable targets such as the entrances and exits to events have clearly come to the fore as a linchpin in the war on terror. Large-scale events such as music concerts or sports events are clearly targets for terrorists and so-called lone wolves, but even smaller events can be targets of some type of security threat.
Working with an Expert for an Event Risk Assessment
As experts and consultants in international meeting security, we have been called upon to conduct event risk assessments, which are sometimes also known as corporate meeting security audits or event audits for security purposes. Working in conjunction with the organization in charge of the event as well as other personnel who may be involved in the planning and execution of the event, our security experts can be hired to conduct an event risk assessment. With deep expertise in all areas of security, and not just security against terrorism or violence, our experts are able to conduct an in-depth risk assessment. There may be risks that you do not see because you do not have the depth of security experience that our experts do.
In a certain sense, every event is unique and different. An Arianna Grande rock concert in London is certainly different than a smaller corporate event that may have just a few hundred people and may not have the kind of publicity that a rock concert by an American rock superstar in London does. Other types of events may involve just a few key executives, who are vulnerable to threats as frightening as kidnapping as well as threats as invisible as cybersecurity. The important point is to first realize that you or your organization are vulnerable to potential types of risks vis-à-vis your events or corporate meetings. Second, then you need to realize that you do not have the skill set to conduct the event risk assessment. And third, to know enough to reach out to the true experts in corporate meetings and other types of risk assessments who can conduct the necessary research before an event.
Reach out for a Consultation on a Possible Event Risk Assessment
Even better, our security experts can work hand in hand with your team so that you not only have an event risk assessment before the event occurs, but you have very detailed planning for the event in place, and that includes security at the event itself. We can even do a postevent risk assessment and analysis so that in the future, you can learn from previous events to constantly be improving your resilience against security threats.
The key to conducting any event risk assessment is to take the abstract concepts such as event security or event security vulnerabilities and make them actionable into concrete tasks into dues. If you are planning any type of corporate meeting or event and are interested in any event risk assessment, reach out to our security experts today for an initial consultation.
