Travel Risk Management & Specialist Risk Consulting
Crisis Management
FocusPoint’s world-class crisis management team believes that every response requires a process. Clients facing a crisis can expect a customized solution that mitigates the negative aspects of any event—including kidnapping, extortion, or blackmail.

The answer is never a cookie-cutter response that puts a bandage on an emergency, even if it requires employee evacuations. FocusPoint’s offices are stationed in almost every international location. Because of this global reach, FocusPoint can coordinate an emergency response anywhere in the world.

Through specific programs designed to address how a crisis erupts, evolves, and ends, FocusPoint’s crisis management team will reduce the negative effects of the crisis. Meanwhile, a client’s employees and global business operations can continue to maximize the opportunities presented by the fluid nature of the crisis environment in both conflict and post-conflict situations.

The FocusPoint crisis response is designed to help clients achieve four goals:

CMP Review & Gap Analysis
FocusPoint specializes in conducting a full range of asset-based risk assessments. Our consultants work closely with clients to identify, characterize and prioritize assets, security hazards and threats.

FocusPoint is experienced in determining the validity of an extortion threat and providing sound advice on how to respond. Our crisis consultants work closely with corporate decision makers and private families to develop and execute response plans that address extortion threats directed towards individuals, malicious contamination of consumable products or critical corporate assets.

Political Risks
The ability to address potential and on-going political risks requires an in-depth knowledge of the political landscape and access to proven ground-truth intelligence capabilities. FocusPoint provides a bespoke service tailored to each of our client’s specific needs. Our crisis consultants leverage a life cycle risk management approach to address both macro and micro-level political risk situations that cover market entry, expansion, on-going operations and exit strategies.
