Despite every organisation’s best attempts to operate securely in hostile environments around the world, incidents such as detentions, kidnappings and other programme critical events do still occur. When this does happen, it places a huge additional burden on existing staff members, and requires quick but informed decision making under significant pressure.
Safer Edge is able to offer experienced people to either advise a Crisis Management Team throughout the duration of an incident, or to lead the organisational aspects of managing the crisis. This will provide your team with an independent, objective viewpoint at a time when emotions run high and judgement can become clouded.
It is best that external engagement of a Crisis Management Advisor/Manager be agreed in advance of any incident. This will enable Safer Edge to:
- familiarise itself with your existing procedures and protocols
- conduct an audit of your Crisis Management process
- offer any recommendations on how to strengthen your Crisis Management Process
- and develop a relationship between individuals that will increase the effectiveness of those working together during a crisis
However, Safer Edge is also able to offer Crisis Management services at immediate notice.
