In the event of a major incident or continuity disruption, Newrisk Limited is available to advise clients as to effective mitigation measures and assist in the implementation of future prevention counter measures.

Post incident analyses have been undertaken by Newrisk Limited and its advisors on a number of catastrophic incidents involving:

Advice to government and management of recovery units has been undertaken by Newrisk Limited and its advisors. 

Pre-emptive post incident analyses have been undertaken where incidents or extreme threats have led governments and organisations to review their procedures and vulnerabilities to catastrophic threats.  This work has covered at the most extreme: nuclear, chemical and biological attacks, terror attacks involving suicide bombings, vehicle bombs and militia style attacks on cities, radiological devices such as dirty bombs and radiological poisoning, explosion and fire in industry, terror and cyber threats to major events including Sydney in 2000 and London in 2012, catastrophic security losses from fraud, cyber and human factors failures, environmental losses from shipping and port incidents, underground rail incidents in tunnels and on stations, power distribution failures, reputation and brand failures.

Post incident analyses may also be conducted in conjunction with recovery assistance and incident mitigation measures including employee self-protection advice.

To request a post incident analysis or to discuss a tailored package of services, please contact Newrisk Limited directly.

  • Security 2018
  • Cyber!

Walk-in attacks by terrorists with guns, improvised explosive devices, knives & other weapons are happening in 2018. France has started to suffer significant threats from attacks directed at police using vehicles & guns.  Heroic police actions to protect the public have united the country.  In England, an attack using Novichok nerve agent on the former Russian Spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury  has increased business sensitivity to international tensions & unconventional weapons.

Regulatory compliance with GDPR will be the top challenge for companies in 2018.   Nation State, organised crime and individual hostile cyber actors can be mitigated by well-trained workforce teams & confident, adaptive & innovative leaders. Cloud & third party providers & insider threats add to the regulatory burden on business. When one mastermind criminal can take a billion dollars out of the financial sector in four years the scale of business losses to poor performance in cyber operations is obvious.  Energy, banking and transportation are high risk targets and organisations with static unchanging security practices are possible consequential victims.
