Control Risks to debut two new service lines at ASIS

WASHINGTON, DC / ANAHEIM, CA Control Risks, the international business risk consultancy, officially launched today two security service lines in the USA: Security Design & Solutions and Embedded Consulting Services. Security Design & Solutions focuses on the evaluation and design of physical and technical protection systems, incorporating both technical engineering and technical security systems. Embedded Consulting Services provides support to Control Risks’ clients in the form of temporary or full time embedded staff.

Control Risks’ Security Design & Solutions service line offers comprehensive, cost effective advice on security risks relevant to each stage of the design and construction process, including effective security measures, which take into account regional risk exposure. “I am proud to have strengthened our business protection services with the new offering of Security Design & Solutions in the USA,” says Jonny Gray, National Director of Crisis and Security Consulting at Control Risks North America. “Control Risks’ independency is highly valued by our clients,” continues Gray, “and offers them the guarantee of an impartial evaluation of their facilities to determine any vulnerability and present them with systemic improvements if necessary.” Control Risks holds decades of experience providing specialist consultancy advice for new and existing sites, buildings and facilities with long standing Security Design & Solutions practices in Europe, the Middle East and Australasia. The multidisciplinary team of Control Risks’ consultants from a network of international offices consists of highly qualified specialists in the design of security construction, electronics and electrical systems. “The launch of our Security Design & Solutions in North America is coordinated with a similar launch in South East Asia and thus Control Risks is now a global security design provider” concludes Gray.

Expanding upon Control Risks’ existing practice of providing embedded security consultants across the globe, the new Embedded Consulting Services broadens the security portfolio in North America to include a more diversified outsourced risk management consultancy offering, such as options for residential analytical, investigative and business resilience support in addition to the security management function. Embedded consultants can provide Control Risks’ quality services within an organization and come with the full support of our global corporate expertise. With the economy still struggling to reach a full recovery, many corporations in the North America market have opted for residential or temporary contract staff to support their business protection operations. “In the current economic climate, our clients are striving to reduce overhead costs more than ever,” explains William Daly, Senior Vice President, Security Consulting Services, “and are increasingly looking to Control Risks to serve as trusted advisor and provide best in class risk management support without adding to corporate headcount.”

Control Risks’ enhanced Security Design & Solutions and Embedded Consulting Services business lines will be officially introduced at ASIS International 2009, September 2123 in Anaheim, CA.
