Country Risk Assessment Services

BGA Protection helps organisations analyse and minimise their location-based risks. We will help you understand the potential risks in over 240 countries and territories worldwide providing criminal, economic, political and technological information, trends and forecasts.

Organisations and individuals have a responsibility to understand their potential exposure in new territories, which allows them to make informed and responsible decisions that ensure their safety and success. We provide up-to-date reports on the latest risk-based information, ensuring our clients are provided with intelligence that is relevant to their unique needs.

As the business regulations become more risk-based, the pressure on organisations to display a proactive approach to mitigating risks is increasing. We help you understand and mitigate your risks abroad, ensuring you achieve greater success worldwide.

Our priority is to first and foremost understand and minimise your risk exposure. We rely on multiple reliable resources including Government Agencies, in-country risk experts and worldwide data and trends. We then analyse the relevant data, and identify potential threats. We have reliable contacts in most African countries that regularly update us with security-related intelligence.

Protector Assessments

A skilled Protector is a highly trained specialist who understands the needs and pressures placed on a 'Protectee' coupled with the demand for individualised security and unobtrusive protection, not somebody with the stature of a night-club bouncer or the fighting skills of a Chuck Norris.

All of our Protectors have been assessed using a unique evaluation tool designed to certify Protectors in line with international best practice.

Through this comprehensive assessment we can guarantee the level of competence of each of our Protection specialists.

Our assessment evaluates a Protector's:

  • Planning and scenario reactions - How well does a protector plan a job, and how would they react in a specific scenario?
  • Fitness - If a protector is not physically fit, they will not be able to fulfill their duties. This is one of the first things we test during our assessments.
  • Soft Skills - A large part of a protector's job is to fit in and function well in different situations. Communication, dress sense, etiquette, general knowledge and overall preparedness are tested to make sure your protector can adapt to their surroundings.
  • Hard Skills - These are the skills that the protection industry is known for. Shooting, driving, restraint, planning and observation skills are all assessed to make sure you are in the safest hands possible.
  • Legal compliance - Being legally compliant is a necessity to work in the protection industry. We make sure our protectors are suitably qualified and meet a country's legal standards before we deploy them.

How competent is your Protector?

If you are questioning your current Protectors competency or are concerned about your security BGA will happily assess your Protection team's "real" ability in relation to international best practice and recommend appropriate measures to improve your current Protection profile.
