Managing Special Risks

Supervisory risks

We are willing to consider taking non-Executive Board membership roles, to aid companies who want a more continual advisory presence, to strengthen their governance and increase rewards from their strategic risk-taking activities.

Cybersecurity/ Counter-espionage risks

We have particular depth of expertise in managing the risks of maintaining information systems which are designed for collaborative sharing of valuable data assets, yet remain standing targets for people who wish to remove or exploit that same information.

Business Continuity & Crisis Management risks

“Good risk management should also recognise that sometimes bad things do happen and are beyond our scope of control”

It is common for people to think that effective risk management is about stopping bad things from happening. This falls into reducing the likelihood of a risk event from taking place. But risk exposure also takes into account the impact of a risk event. Good risk management should also recognise that sometimes bad things do happen and are beyond our scope of control.

Planning for failure, building in resilience into our technologies, processes and organisational thinking, are a great countermeasure for minimising negative outcomes even when our systems of control start to let us down. Working out how to please your customers, how to get essential tasks done even when normal resources are unavailable, knowing how to enhance your reputation by responding in the correct way. Deep-thinking and high quality preparation are needed to make a difference – thinking which is hard to do when your head is full of day-to-day operational concerns.

Let us help you to plan to cope with failure so that it does not overwhelm the organisation but provides a stepping-stone to higher future performance.
