Dedicated Teams

Security Risk & Crisis Management Team

NYA’s security risk and crisis management consultants are practitioners from a variety of backgrounds. They are highly experienced in the development of corporate security and crisis management solutions across varied and complex operating environments.

We are routinely involved in all aspects of organisational resilience programs, including threat and vulnerability assessments, corporate security planning, crisis management planning, personnel safety and security, and transitional arrangements for business continuity management.

Consultants are selected for a project based on their experience and knowledge of the particular operating environment and industry sector. Where possible, we provide consultants with local language capability as well as cultural knowledge of the environment.

NYA’s methodology is a Best Practice approach incorporating internationally recognised standards and frameworks, including ISO 31000:2009 Risk Management and BS 11200:2014 Crisis Management.

Crisis Response Team

NYA is an international business, with one of the largest specialist teams of response consultants in the industry located in the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific.

Local expertise, language and cultural understanding

When dealing with an incident, our clients’ crisis management teams often wish to speak their own language, and work with a consultancy that has in-depth local knowledge and relationships with the authorities. With a team comprising 13 different nationalities in 14 countries, speaking 13 languages, NYA is best placed to provide a global service.

The most rapid response

The global spread of our response consultants allows for the most rapid and effective response. Please note however that NYA selects the response team for each case based on a number of factors, including experience of the country, type of incident, industry sector and language requirement. Our consultants are chosen for their international experience and ability to support the unpredictable nature of any crisis incident, wherever in the world it occurs, and may deploy globally.

Operational resilience

All of our crisis response consultants are exclusively retained on a full time basis, as it is our policy never to subcontract response services to third parties or external consultants. This ensures that our clients have access to the very highest calibre individuals at the time they need them most.

Our crisis response consultants are carefully selected from a variety of backgrounds, including all arms of the military, national law enforcement, international intelligence agencies, the media and the commercial and corporate security and risk management sector. A number have been decorated by the military or received nationally recognised honours.

We invest significantly in our team. Following initial selection, and regardless of prior experience, every response consultant is required to pass what is widely considered to be the most demanding assessment programme in the industry.

They receive on-going training and share case experience throughout their career with NYA to maintain Best Practice standards.
