Having identified risks to the business, it is sometimes prudent to conduct an in-depth threat assessment on specific actors and issues to understand the credibility and severity of the threat.
The issue. The client wanted to scope and understand specific threats which might negatively impact their operations at sites throughout East Africa.
Our approach. Qualitative and quantitative data was collected from within the organisation, open source and on-the-ground research. This was analysed using a host of methods to identify the key tactical, operational and strategic threats to the business. These findings were documented to the client detailing the issues, likely impacts and options for mitigation.
The outcome. Several unknown threats were identified and Assaye Risk’s analysis altered understanding of previously known threats. This product was used to initiate a review and update of the corporate security strategy to ensure it was fit for purpose.
