Risk and Threat Assessment
Properly assessing and having a complete understanding of the level of risk and the potential threats that exist to your organization or your daily operation is paramount and should always be a priority. Your organization and the people who work for you are your greatest asset and are truly the reason that you should establish an effective security policy and up-to-date emergency plans.
Every organization faces some type of security risk, which may vary between minimal risk to risk that has a direct impact on life safety. These risks can be derived from external threats whether they be natural or accidental and (yes) even internal human threats.
Failure to recognize and manage these risks will eventually jeopardize even the most successful business, leaving you open to an incident that could result in the costly interruption of your operations or negatively impact the safety of your staff.
Akshar Consulting, LLC. will conduct a full risk assessment and security survey of your organization. We work closely with our clients to build, improve and sustain comprehensive and high-performance security and risk management programs that are cost effective, that properly address risks and that advance business and mission objectives.
Based on our findings and our extensive experience in the field we will provide our recommendations in a detailed written summary to minimize any potential risks and ensure your employees know how to deal with those threats or risks if they present themselves through staff trainings should your organization chose that path.

Event/Personal security services are designed to evaluate and mitigate risk for individuals whose reputations, prominence, wealth, travel itineraries, occupations or simple desire by a family member require heightened personal security.
In some cases the need for event/personal security services is limited to travel only to certain destinations, or when they are moving to a new location because of school or work. Other times, the principal, and his or her family member, might require 24/7 coverage at home, at work or school or while traveling. There are certain situations or risk factors that may require you to have security at an event that you are planning or at an event you or your family member is traveling to.
Our highly trained and experienced staff will work with you and your family to ensure your loved one is protected and you have a peace of mind when they are gone.
