Safety and Physical Security

FGIS provides its clients with leadership and expertise regarding safety and security matters. Our team has advised public and private companies, organizations and government entities on the development and implementation of effective safety and security programs. From an audit of existing security measures within a company to the planning of an international sporting event, we can assist in efforts to protect your employees and your organization’s assets.

FGIS approaches each engagement as a collaborative effort with the client, developing an individualized and comprehensive plan that often includes working closely with local, national and international law enforcement and intelligence organizations to understand the risks of a particular situation. This collaborative approach enables the client to make judicious and well-informed decisions.

In addition to being on the ground in high-risk countries, FGIS team members have also provided security services throughout Europe and the United States.

How We Can Help

Security audits, reviews and inspections
We conduct comprehensive and independent assessments of existing security policies, operations, physical facilities, infrastructure, technology, executive protection and training to determine their effectiveness and identify potential deficiencies. This assessment identifies problems so FGIS can provide tactical and strategic recommendations, enabling the client to be proactive in protecting its people against threats and securing its assets.

International project security planning and consulting
FGIS team members maintain contact with colleagues from various law enforcement, military and intelligence communities across the globe. By utilizing this important network, we can help clients institute the most effective safety and security methods and measures when hosting an international project or event. This includes intelligence gathering, local risk assessment, acting as a liaison with government agencies and police forces, offering site security plans and engineering services, and providing on-site security training and engagement.

Major events planning, including sporting and other high-profile events
FGIS and its team members have a proven record of providing security planning and management for high-profile events. We can deploy a team in advance to assess safety and security issues ranging from petty crime to terrorism threats, as well as provide stadium structural engineering reviews. We evaluate possible risks and provide intelligence, planning and management in addition to acting as the liaison with local law enforcement or coordinating with other private security firms and coordinating 24/7 command post operations during the events. Sports and entertainment events often also include the need for specialized on-site training programs incorporating the latest information and technological advances. FGIS experts can provide instruction for local law enforcement and personal security personnel in areas such as executive protection, counter-surveillance, crowd control, explosive countermeasure techniques and crisis management.
