Counter-terrorism Training for US Companies Working Overseas

Military demobilization of foreign countries post conflict resolution can be a scary time for private companies with continuing operations on the ground when the political climate could turn in an instant. By incorporating security practices and counterterrorism training into the assistance provided to private companies working overseas in war-torn regions, Archival Institute is helping private companies operate in continued safety after much of the troops are called home. These training programs are also included in Archival Institute’s Private Sector Engagements with private companies designed to keep personnel and resources safe from a range of local threats. Combined with threat and risk assessment, companies can also use these services to lower liability and improve the performance of their international operations.

Lower Your Risk of Liability  

The EU is pouring billions of dollars into Turkey, Syria, and a number of African countries to prevent refugees from reaching their shores.  Still, the refugee crisis continues to grow and evolve. With countries like Hungary and the UK now looking to their own borders, we can help stabilize the security and economies of these countries where there is a political will to do so by customizing our program to their specific needs. own borders, we can help stabilize the security and economies of these countries where there is a


In today’s environment of complex geopolitical, economic, and cultural challenges, peace and stability can become fleeting windows of opportunity for development and trade. Maximizing the potential for growth demands threat assessment. Determining threat requires a more in-depth application of eight operational variables known in the intelligence community as a PMESII-PT matrix. This matrix consists of Political, Military, Economic, Social, Information, Infrastructure, Physical environment and Time considerations. We use these parameters as guides to create an accurate picture of an Operational Environment to keep people and assets safe and lower risk and liability. When local communities prosper, so do most businesses and when businesses prosper, so do local communities. Realizing the potential for this synergy can also contribute towards ongoing threat and crisis management.

Offset Risk

Archival Institute helps companies manage risk for investment operations overseas using a proven five-step model to determine operational risk within an Area of Interest (AOI) or an Area of Operation (A0) abroad. These steps ((1.)Identify hazards, (2.) Assess Hazards, (3.) Make risk decisions, (4.) Implement controls, (5.) Supervise, consult, mitigate) allow us to apply the rules of risk assessment in order to determine suitability for organizations seeking real-time intelligence to make the best decisions possible.
