Risk & Security

Bramston & Associates provides risk and security professionals to help our customers understand and treat their risk and security risks. This may be in support of a project, period of change, expansion, or to address a specific need. Our team also helps integrate risk and security measures into building designs.

Our consultancy approach is delivered by an experienced and diverse consulting team, supported by our analysts, investigators, instructors and others as needed. For more prolonged projects, Bramston & Associates embeds consultants in client businesses to occupy management, analysis or internal consultancy posts.

As well as programmed consultancy, our risk consultants provide specialist advice to senior managers faced with highly complex and sensitive issues.

Consulting

Our consultants work with all types of customers, from governments, NGOs and multinationals through medium to small business and private individuals. Strategic security consulting identifies and examines threats and risks to customers and ensures their mitigation strategy is appropriately focused and resourced. We work with senior managers, security directors, CEOs, and others to ensure that security resources are aligned to meet core business aims. This often starts with a strategic risk assessment before developing the executive directive. Bramston & Associates can assist with the production of corporate policies and standards or security schemes and delivery plans for the enterprise.

Security and risk management consultancy is focused on people and implementation. It includes assessing security and risk management, outsourced providers, and operational planning and implementation.

Operational

Operational risk consultancy works on the frontline of security delivery at the site or security team level. It will often involve personnel, operational and technical security elements. It balances different measures – human, process, physical, and technical – to ensure that risks are mitigated.

By reviewing a team or physical asset, Bramston & Associates can ensure there are no gaps in security delivery. Our consultants also test existing security measures using a blend of intrusion testing, social engineering, competency reviews, and technical security sweeps to ensure that security is effective and applied appropriately.

OUR TEAM

Our team effectively becomes yours, as we assign professionals to work with your staff to form an optimum project team that tailors our services to fit your specific requirements.

Our associates and management have extensive experience conducting business in Africa with proven track records of operating successful companies, including startups, manufacturing facilities, professional services, and marketing and sales organisations. Our directors are shareholders in several firms and serve on the Boards of Directors for some of our client companies, demonstrating a commitment to work to ensure their continuing success through active participation in management.

Our management has carefully selected our consultants, research analysts, and administrative staff for their multidisciplinary experience, expertise, and ability to provide value to our clients. Bramston & Associates also retains independent expert consultants, to complement project teams when specific technical knowledge outside of our team’s core competencies is needed.
