The Problem

The world has become a much more unstable place to conduct business in the last year. The ongoing war in Ukraine, the current conflicts in Gaza and elsewhere in Africa, the enduring terrorist threat and the large number of upcoming elections are just some of the geo-political risks, that affect the safety, security and reputation of businesses around the globe. The rise in cyber crime and the documented links with hostile nation states, terrorists and organised crime gangs can leave businesses vulnerable to potentially catastrophic risks.

The Solution

  • We have the skills, knowledge and experience to cut through the noise and identify the potential threats that pose direct or indirect risks to your business.
  • Our personal, physical and digital security assessments enable us to identify weaknesses before they are exploited and provide advice on remediation measures.
  • A review of your organisation’s security culture, identifying risky behaviour, processes and gaps in training, recommending measures to remedy the shortfalls to ensure well-trained, disciplined and alert people throughout the organisation.
  • Thorough physical security assessment we ensure that any vulnerabilities are identified, and our post-review actions and accompanying training enable remediation.
  • Our digital security team can review pure digital risk, such as cyber-penetration, and wider digital security behaviours, including social media activity within the organisation. Our periodic digital risk assessments are translated into an automatically updated risk dashboard.
  • We deliver digital security awareness training packages for employees.
  • Bespoke security advice to individual organisations with integrated assessments to ensure no vulnerabilities are left unchecked. Our comprehensive reviews and mitigation packages enable you to conduct safe and secure business operations, worldwide.
  • UDSS’ professionally-qualified teams utilise the latest methodologies and technological solutions to ensure that all aspects are covered and responses are pre-planned and practised.
  • We offer specific defence-related security advice to companies operating MOD contracts and provide vetting and compliance services for personnel and procedures required to comply with Security Aspect Letter flowdowns.
