Case Studies

Fortune 50 Technology Firm case study

Fortune 50 Technology Firm

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.

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, 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, 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 and make recommendations for enhancement to mitigate potential risk associated with travel to foreign destinations.

The Chertoff Group Value Add: We provided a set of 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.
