Risk Protection Associates works with organizations to develop and maintain a competitive edge by managing risk from a holistic approach. Our team of experts determines the critical risks you face, develop recommendations for reducing your risk exposure, and identify your opportunities for increased safety, security and bottom line cost savings.
Risk Protection Associates was the first in its industry to pioneer the concept of "organic security", a holistic approach to risk management which maintains that all aspects of operational risk are not only related, but inter-dependent. There is no "one-size fits-all" or "cookie cutter" risk management program that can meet every need. Each risk management program must be tailored to the specific needs of the operation and the organizational culture.
One of the first steps in developing a prevention program for business risk is to perform a comprehensive risk assessment. This is based on a company's unique assets, business practices and potential threats to the business. The RPA risk assessment and analysis will identify areas of critical and residual risk, and highlight the specific operational considerations that must be examined in order to mitigate risk.
Strategic and tactical recommendations resulting from a company's risk assessment are provided in a comprehensive, written form, addressing specific corporate vulnerabilities. RPA consultants propose risk control solutions and manage the implementation of those preventive solutions and programs identified by the risk assessment.
DEVELOPING A CORPORATE SECURITY PROGRAM
In most organizations, risk management and internal control activities are numerous and fragmented. This lack of alignment and coordination can result in overlaps or gaps in risk mitigation strategies.
Through a comprehensive review and assessment, Risk Protection Associates can help companies identify and understand the misalignments, challenges, and improvement opportunities in their risk control and security frameworks.
We conduct gap analyses using DHS, FEMA and ASIS standards and best practices as the foundation to provide a clear definition of focus areas and efforts that help management drive incremental improvements that mitigate risk and enhance overall performance.
In developing your Corporate Security Program, our consultants will generally include a review of:
Background & operation of the location(s)- environment and operational routines.
Existing security policies/procedures. If there are no existing policies and procedures, our consultants will be able to write them.
Emergency Operations Manual - policies and procedures. If there are no existing policies and procedures, our consultants will be able to write them.
