Security Management Support
Security Regulatory Matters
Government Relations in the Security Risk Management Domain
ATHOS team members support company members responding to critical incidents,
not only with their off-duty security and temporary technical surveillance
needs, but can assist in incident command and regulatory review of response
and recovery after an incident.
Support in DHS/TSA Corporate Security Program Reviews
With extensive experience as former Corporate Security Directors,
ATHOS staff will assist in preparation for Corporate Security Reviews conducted
by U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration,
for energy companies involved in petroleum and petrochemical transportation
sectors. Athos will also assist companies in field operational reviews
through referrals to trusted partners.
Security Program Benchmarking and Strategic Change Management
Corporate restructuring, growth, or expansions through mergers and acquisitions
often force security directors to rapidly adjust to changing operational
and financial realities.
ATHOS staff, employing their deep corporate security experience, assist and
facilitate these transitions…from assisting company security leaders
in identifying industry best practices and solutions…to supporting
the formation or re-engineering of the full security function within a company.
Companies find themselves requiring support in sensitive internal investigations,
or complex matters demanding specialized resources or expertise not residing
within the company’s existing staff. Using a trusted network of
associates, each of whom are former federal agents,
ATHOS assists members of an Office of General Counsel or an Enterprise Chief
Security Officer in quickly and discreetly assessing issues of concern
and providing key information for decision makers. With confidentiality,
accuracy, and sensitivity,
ATHOS associated investigators work closely with a client to tailor their results
to the specific needs of the client.
Civil and Criminal Due Diligence
In hiring, contracting, or managing allegations of impropriety against
employees companies often find limitations in large scale service providers
to obtain essential information to assess business and workplace risk.
ATHOS provides timely, complete and value sensitive information for companies
to assess potential vendors, partners and others through identification
of criminal and civil records and documents. Each case is managed as an
individual concern, with close client coordination to ensure needs are
addressed and all available options for inquiry are determined for client decision.
Corporate Office Security Risk Assessments
Physical security of a workplace is of critical concern to companies, whether
the risk is from theft and trespass, loss of intellectual property, terrorist
attack, or an act of workplace violence.
ATHOS associates provide corporate office security risk assessments based on
current best practices and benchmarks, working with clients to identify
the best risk mitigation measures while supporting effective business
operations and managing costs.
ATHOS staff provide training sessions to support clients in critical areas;
most at no or nominal cost. Training sessions are live, and intended for
Security, HR and Legal Department Professionals, either in individual
groups or as interdisciplinary teams in venues from a “lunch and
learn” to large all-employee meetings.
Topics include “Managing Workplace Violence Incidents – Steps
and Pitfalls,” “Forging Effective Security Partnerships,”
and “Managing Security Risk – A Guide To Leading Change.”
