Training, scenario testing & live exercising

To keep your security solutions robust and resilient, it is important to conduct regular training, scenario testing and live exercises, to bring your teams up to date with the latest procedures. Our solutions are tailored to your specific needs, focused on relevant potential incidents that would need to be managed.

We work with you to create the most realistic scenario possible, with our teams having experience of developing and implementing more in-depth joint exercising involving the emergency services and multiple businesses. These exercises are incredibly useful as they enable a holistic view of response capabilities and provide the opportunity to test complex and multifaceted incidents.

Live exercising & scenario testing

Live exercises can provide invaluable intelligence that helps you to identify gaps in your security processes or procedures that can be made more effective or efficient. Our live exercise specialists work with you to design and deliver appropriate scenarios to test your people and environments. We ensure that any test we undertake is proportional to your unique risk profile and the most relevant threat to your location, such as suspicious packages, protest action or terror related incidents.

Live exercising & scenario testing

Conducting robust live exercises not only identifies gaps and areas for improvement in your security solution, but also keeps your teams highly trained in the latest processes and can breed confidence throughout individuals that in the event of a real incident, they have the knowledge and skills to handle the situation effectively and minimise the risk to your business.

Live exercises can also be a fantastic platform to assess your security staff and identify high performing individuals. Our experts in live exercising will ensure that the entire team are involved, enabling you to identify any individuals who could potentially perform at a higher level and those that need additional training or support.

Our scenario testing is always designed to build trust and confidence throughout your teams, empowering them to take decisions to get situations under control and better manage and mitigate threats and risks to your organisation. Doing this in a live setting is an excellent way to understand how individuals and teams react in challenging circumstances and offers an opportunity to improve your security processes.

Penetration Testing

We have experts in conducting penetration tests, also known as unauthorised access tests, to identify weaknesses in your physical security. Our specialists conduct a detailed analysis of your existing security and any publicly available intelligence to plan their ‘attack’. Agreeing with you the specific target at a location, always proportionally based on the most relevant intrusion type to your location, our individuals will put your solutions to the test, and upon completion provide a detailed report outlining their findings and suggesting recommendations to mitigate and manage any flaws they identified.

Penetration Testing

Primarily penetration tests enable you to identify weaknesses in your existing physical security, with the test highlighting ways in which your solution could be improved in future to prevent malicious attacks that would look to exploit the same or similar weaknesses as the test.

However, penetration tests can also prove to be beneficial to deliver peace of mind that your existing security is robust. Failed penetration tests can be just as valuable as successful ones as they highlight the strength of an existing solution and can also motivate your team and hone their skills.

Bespoke training programmes

Bespoke training programmes

Collaborating with you, we design training programmes tailored to your unique risk profile, ensuring any training is relevant and proportional to the potential risks and threats your people, assets and environment may face. Having specific training ensures your people’s skills are kept up to date, so they can better deal with incidents as well as better understand new processes and procedures aimed at making your security strategy more effective and efficient.

We can deliver specific e-learning modules for your teams, focusing on key areas to improve and enhance your individuals and teams. E-learning can be a useful tool in conducting quick assessments of your teams’ skills and identifying areas that need to be addressed with further e-learning or other training methods.

As part of our training solutions we also run tabletop exercises for you teams and leaders. Running through examples in a tabletop setting helps your management and leadership teams to better understand how situations can develop and how to effectively manage them when live incidents occur.
