Intelligence services

To protect your people, places, assets and information, you need to know where and when threats may appear. That’s why every good security strategy starts with the right insights.

The intelligence arm of our integrated security offering combines state of the art technology with industry-leading experts to help you understand the risks you face and plan a robust strategy to protect what’s important.

How we can help

Combining proven expertise with the latest innovations, our Science of Service® approach provides timely, actionable insights into specific industry-related and geographical threats. We also supply bespoke reports and guidance, all tailored to your organisation’s unique needs. Our intelligence arm works independently from our other security services, allowing us to stress-test the measures you have in place and bolster your approach. We provide vulnerability assessments, penetration testing, counter-espionage, specialist training and more. And with the option to have a dedicated team embedded in our Intelligence Hub, or to have our analysts work within your own environments, we cover every angle of your intelligence needs.
