Security Risk Management

Conducting regular assessments of your organization's security, personnel management and related programs provides a platform for identifying and addressing issues before they mature. Our assessments incorporate a risk-based security assessment methodology of your physical infrastructure with evaluations of your threat management programs and processes. The assessment also identifies areas of your organization's infrastructure and programs that are working well. This allows your organization to fully leverage these strengths and further provides a means of promoting the continued use of these desired behaviors and practices.

Once the assesement is completed, your organization is provided an easy-to understand narrative report that outlines our observations and gives the background and foundation of any recommendations we may make. Alvarez Associates will work with your team to create a plan to mitigate the impact of negative events. We work closely with your managment team to identify solutions that work within your operational budget.

We use positive reinforcement to create lasting "mental anchors". Our programs are customized and take into consideration your organization's unique requirements and challenges.  Find out more information by visiting our Violence Prevention Academy page.

 

Behavioral Threat Assessment/Management

There is no single model or assessment tool that can accurately and reliably predict if or when a person will become violent. However, assessing the credibility and seriousness of threats of violence can be an effective part of any organization's violence prevention effort. A multi-disciplinary approach to threat assessment has proven to be very effective. Unfortunately, most organizations do not maintain professional threat assessment experts on staff. Our threat assessment model leverages decades of law enforcement/security experience, education, course work, industry best practices and assessment of hundreds of potential violent individuals and situations.

After conducting an initial assessment of the situation, our threat assessment experts will work with your staff to determine the best course of action. If you don’t have a formal threat assessment team, we will help identify the appropriate members and then work with them throughout the assessment process.
