Transactional Intelligence At SSSI, we understand that the painstaking scrutiny of information is critical to making strategic business decisions that influence mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, public and private placements of securities, outsourcing/off shoring and other cross-border transactions. Simply providing raw data is insufficient and our teams of former law enforcement officials, intelligence officers, technology experts and forensic accountants conduct global investigations, analyse source documents and present objective assessments of transactional risks to our clients. Delving beyond the traditional concept of due diligence, SSSI’s efforts in this space encompasses matters of competitive and defensive intelligence, image and reputation assessment, intellectual property and brand protection, political risk and FCPA or the equivalent assessments for emerging markets, and hedge fund investigations. Integrity Advisory A company’s hard-earned reputation is one of its most valuable assets and its protection is of supreme importance to global organizations. Internal controls play a critical role in preventing or warning of potential threats that could tarnish a corporation’s image and impact its business relationships or financial transactions. Our multi-facetted teams conduct independent reviews and investigate suspected problem areas, including anti-money laundering and foreign corrupt practices concerns, for any businesses worldwide. We help analyse and assess policies and procedures to identify gaps or breaches in existing safeguards, and are practised at designing and implementing mitigation measure that serve to remedy shortfalls or to monitor to ensure compliance with imposed sanctions. Security Management & Consultancy SSSI’s approach is practical. We counsel organisations on developing and implementing an overarching corporate security strategy. We particularly advise entities on risk reduction strategies that provide protection to their most valuable assets: their people, their reputation, their information and their physical assets. In circumstance where the threat to business is particularly heightened, SSSI can deploy specialist security controller to be embedded into our client’s operations. We evaluate existing security arrangements, for development projects, our engineers work with architects to include security measures at the design stage. Our regional and sector experts, constantly review the risks faced by each and every one of our clients on an individual basis taking their areas of operations and the specific threat levels into consideration. At SSSI we understand that no two organisations are alike, and that and that many influencing factors including the nature of their business, the profile of their employees and the geographical spread of their assets, exclusively determine their level of exposure. Crisis Management Effective crisis management provides organisations with a competitive advantage. However protecting an organisation’s reputation, environment, key business assets, employees and other stakeholders is an ongoing process, in the face of such extreme, complex and constantly changing world. SSSI’s crisis management consultants identify the threats and risks to faced by our client organisations. We then support our clients through the process of developing and implementing systems and strategies, which empower them to manage crises. SSSI design and deliver role play simulation sessions to rigorously test client’s crisis management plans and prepare staff members for the real occurrence. Regular reviews assist in maintaining clients’ crisis management strategies and tactics updated at all times. In the inopportune situation of a crisis occurring, our consultants have the specialist expertise required to effectively support our clients to respond to a wide range of crises. Business Continuity Services Business Continuity Management should be included within the wider risk management structure of any organisation.

SSSI business continuity consultants provide support to organisations throughout the entire business continuity management process. Travel Security Employees travel to familiar and unfamiliar countries so organisations require a travel security programme that staff can rely on. Organisations have a responsibility to ensure the security of travelling employees, whilst employee’s have a responsibility to follow organisational guidelines. If clients have travellers arriving in high risk destinations they need to ensure that the necessary travel security measures are in place. Achieving this requires a layered and procedural travel security policy which includes authorisation, pre-deployment briefs and on the ground support SSSI supports clients in implementing new travel security programmes from scratch or reviewing and enhancing existing programmes, SSSI can provide clients with the consultancy, support and the tools to ensure that your people are well prepared have a reliable source of advice when travelling and comply with your travel policy. This ensures that organisations can clearly show due care and attention in respect of their employee’s safety whilst travelling on business.
