Protection

  • Close Protection

    Galahad Associates prides itself on providing bespoke security solutions that are designed to allow businesses and individuals to move safely and conduct a full range of activities regardless of the environment they are operating in.

  • Residential Security

    His or her home is the one place in which everyone should feel secure. With the rise of residential vandalism, theft, aggravated burglary and even kidnapping there is a growing concern for home safety.

  • Venue & Event Security

    Finding security that combines a high level of protection without compromising the nature and spirit of the event or venue can be a challenge for organisers. Galahad can assist by providing a holistic solution centred on discreet, professional and co-operative security personnel.

  • Counter Surveillance

    Most hostile acts, from low level crime to highly organised kidnap and ransom plots will be preceeded by some form of surveillance activity. Use of effective counter surveillance is the best and sometimes the only way to detect and prevent these acts whilst they are still in the planning stages.

Personal Threat Assessment

Personal Threat Assessment

All of us face threat on a daily basis, whether it’s unintentional injury or illness, a planned attack, natural disaster or civil unrest.

Galahad Associates can carry out an in depth threat assessment based on your particular circumstances, place of residence and travel plans. By following a five step threat and risk assessment process we can identify threats, assess levels of risk based on the likelihood and impact of them occurring and then formulate control measures that reduce those risks to an acceptable level.

Corporate Threat Assessment

Corporate Threat Assessment

With the current economic uncertainty in Europe, many businesses are now looking further afield for emerging opportunities and expansion. Often these can be challenging environments to operate in with fragile economic and security situations. Determining the risks and issues involved and putting measures in place to protect personnel and assets is a vital part of Galahad Associates’ pre-entry survey.

Galahad Associates consultants can make initial visits to the country, drawing on their own expertise, as well as a network of local consultants to provide detailed assessments of entry and exit procedures, medical and emergency care facilities, hotels and accommodation, transportation and other key infrastructure. In addition they will also build solid relationships with local and governmental officials enabling a facilitation network to be formed on behalf of our clients.

Journey Risk Management and Planning

Journey Risk Management & Planning

The world is becoming smaller, with more and more individuals and businesses travelling to potentially challenging areas. Unfortunately the rise in incidents such as kidnapping and violent crime, and the ever-present threat from terrorism and civil unrest can make travel hazardous for those who lack knowledge and in depth understanding of the region.

Our journey risk management service utilises the latest intelligence reports, our own experience of the region and in country contacts to assess the risks associated with that particular area. We can then provide advice and recommendations to mitigate those risks and allow for safe and successful travel, be it business, leisure, an expedition or gap year.

Contingency Planning and Emergency Response

Contingency Planning &
Emergency Response

Recent world events have highlighted a need for companies to have robust and effective contingency plans in place to deal with crisis situations. Whether it’s a natural disaster, civil unrest or conflict, Galahad Associates can advise on developing and then initiating a timely and measured response to emergencies.

Galahad Associates’ team operatives have crisis management and training experience gained during the recent civil unrest in Egypt and Libya, and were engaged in numerous roles, including personnel evacuation, site security surveys and providing vital assistance to businesses during their re-occupation phase.

Surveillance

Surveillance

Human intelligence gained by covert surveillance methods can be invaluable in a range of cases, from fraud and the detection of criminal activity, to locating and tracking individuals.

Galahad Associates and its personnel draw on experience gained operating in a range of environments throughout the world, many of them hostile or extremely challenging. We use skills gained in specialist military and government agencies to provide evidence, intelligence and imagery to support investigations. This service is available to individuals, businesses and organisations.
