Intelligence

Many corporations and investors operating internationally are exposed to unfamiliar environments where risks are often unforeseen or misunderstood. As a result, businesses seek enhanced levels of due diligence as well as on-going awareness of local risks which may impact on their operations and staff. While there is a wealth of information in the public domain, little of it is presented in combination with relevant human source intelligence and a focus on effective risk mitigation. Spartent presents ethically sourced ‘ground truth’ information combined with meaningful analysis to enable clients to identify, assess and understand changing risks.

Our services include:

  • Risk Monitoring
  • Strategic & Market Intelligence
  • Crisis Reporting
  • Due Diligence
  • Investment Appraisal
Risk Management

Risk Management

Modern multinational enterprises feature outsourced and ‘just in time’ operating models, which rely heavily on information systems to engage global networks of suppliers, subcontractors and customers. The resulting interdependencies and shared risks cannot be managed by solutions anchored in a single geography or function. In this dynamic business environment, our strategic risk management approach balances global risk perspectives with an enterprise-wide view of key business processes and in-depth knowledge of local conditions and circumstances. In addition to designing the processes and systems to address a client’s assessed risks, we can provide comprehensive support in programme implementation.

Our services include:

  • Risk Assessment & Security Review
  • Technical Security Design
  • Capital Project Risk Management
  • Supply Chain Risk Management
  • Programme Implementation Support
Crisis Management

Crisis Management

Companies operating in volatile environments face increasing expectations from staff, shareholders and regulators to have planned for and robustly respond to unexpected events. Companies require well prepared contingency plans to deal with a variety of issues including natural disasters, weather related phenomena, political turmoil, insurgency and terrorism, local activism and local labour unrest. Spartent offers both a deep knowledge of the local environments in which companies are operating and a thorough understanding of current best practices being adopted to plan for and manage crises. We also maintain the commitment and capabilities to provide practical support to our clients throughout any crisis.

Information Security

Information Security

Information technology now permeates every part of a company’s operations and this, combined with the increasing value of intellectual property and trade secrets, means that cyber risks require at least as much attention as physical risks. Spartent’s approach to information security involves not only examining the ways in which information is created, stored, transmitted and used within the organisation, but also the access and interdependencies arising from counterparties who interact electronically with the enterprise. In this way Spartent can provide a holistic view of an organisation’s information risks and recommend appropriate technical and organisational measures to safeguard information assets.

Our services include:

  • Information Security Policy
  • Vulnerability & Penetration Testing
  • System Security Analysis
  • Business Activity Security Analysis
  • Information Environment Risk Management
