threat analysis and crisis management for companies operating overseas

Threat Analysis for Overseas Operations

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.¬†
