“RSM have been instrumental in supporting our global risk management efforts, developing our business continuity management system and operationalizing this through a first rate online and certified instructor-led training programs.“
Risk and Strategic Management, Corp. (RSM) provides consultancy advice on strategic, operational and tactical level risks, creating a holistic risk registry and associated solution strategies (treatment plans) to identify, avoid, mitigate or respond to dynamic, evolving and multi-faceted challenges, whether at the strategic, operational or tactical levels.
Our track record in this area is as impressive as it is diverse, and we have supported organizations both large and small to understand and manage risk domestically and abroad, including in some of the world’s most challenging environments such as Afghanistan, Yemen, the Palestinian Territories, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Pakistan, Mali, South Sudan, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Kenya, Haiti, Colombia, El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala, Kosovo and Kyrgyzstan. We also assist on domestic risk management, whether for an NGO, government group, construction, pharmaceutical or manufacturing group.
Our advisors work at all levels, from the CEO and executive boards, through to national, program and site levels, and can support organizations on an as needed basis for advice and guidance. RSM provides advisory support services to leadership teams on emergency preparedness and enterprise resilience for new operating environments, or during business and operational expansions. We also support program risk analysis and define solutions and controls against varied and evolving threats.
Business, Country, Program, Subcontractor and Incident Assessments
RSM provides country risk assessments for business and program planning in order to determine the risks associated with an operating environment in the context of the organization and its planned activities in country. The assessment looks at the key threats which affect people, assets, operations, reputation and liability exposures – allowing effective management planning in terms of defining the required management structures, policies, plans and procedures, operating practices, regulatory considerations, training and exercising, support and resources, subcontracted services, facility selection and enhancements, and associated budgets. RSM can also provide country predictive risk assessments identifying and evaluating known calendar events or emerging risks which might present a threat to organizations, whether associated with intentional hostile acts or resulting from natural hazards.
RSM can provide advisory services through assessments of an organization’s subcontractor’s policies, plans, procedures, processes, management structures, intelligence tracking, communications and report writing, training and assessments, performance reviews, assurances and monitoring, assets, people and resources, facilities and emergency response capabilities.
Our team also provides consulting services for post incident assessments and investigations; providing reports on the findings, professional observations and remediation requirements and action points associated with critical incident or event. These are presented as verbal briefings to the leadership teams alongside a comprehensive written report, with associated evidence packages.
Facility and Event Assessments, and Capacity Building
RSM advisors can conduct facility risk reviews for residences and offices domestically or abroad, determining their suitability from a safety and security perspective, as well as any gaps and vulnerabilities which might expose people, operations and assets to risk. Our services include providing recommendations for practical improvements to operating practices, structures, technologies, materials and security personnel to meet the safety and security requirements reflective of the risk conditions.
Our team can also provide event advisory support, helping organizations plan for and conduct safe conferences, training or other events through a systematic and knowledge led approach. This assessment looks at venues, threats, resourcing, management team composition and planning, training, communications and other critical planning requirements – as well as how an incident would be managed if a threat materialized.
Uniquely, we can also build internal capacity in all areas through our certified and accredited instructor-led, remote mentoring and online training solutions.
