Security Services Case Studies


Situation: The CEO of a global technology firm was seeking a comprehensive security assessment for the company’s corporate headquarters location given the increase in unpredictable threats occurring around the world. Recognizing the increased visibility placed on CEOs, he also requested a personal security review for himself and his family in order to ensure proper risk mitigation and security measures were in place to prevent potential harm.

​Strategy: Understanding the threat, including potential motivations and capabilities to carry out harm, helps determine the overall risk environment for any organization. As part of the comprehensive security assessment for corporate headquarters, our Security Services team reviewed existing security features while also assessing access controls, perimeter security and response functions against potential threats. The Chertoff Group also conducted a family security assessment for the company’s Founder, leveraging information from the family itself along with open-source intelligence and social media monitoring. Upon their request, we conducted an executive security assessment of the client’s main estate and mobile assets along with a thorough review of executive protection policies and procedures. Finally, we conducted a travel security assessment to identify any ongoing threat streams or potential hazards and make recommendations for enhancement to mitigate potential risk associated with travel to foreign destinations.

​The Chertoff Group Value Add: The Chertoff Group provided a set of tailored and actionable recommendations along with corporate security best practices to boost security not only for corporate headquarters but for close family protection as well. The outcome resulted in better security awareness and procedures for mitigating risk without unreasonably encroaching on business operations or the family’s personal freedoms. Our recommendations were intelligence-driven and tailored specifically to the business and to the client’s particular risk tolerance.
