Understanding the Environment

The cornerstone of planning to counter threat is the complete understanding of the operating environment. This understanding must be as broad as the spectrum of threat it presents. Keel Strategic knows that time spent in reconnaissance is time well spent. A key aspect of the ASSESS phase is to get forward and fully evaluate the clients operating environment and identify possible pinch points. The Assess phase can include:

  • Assessing a clients Standard Operating Procedures (if they exist)
  • Understanding the clients operating requirements
  • Assess all existing national and local threats
  • Reconnoiter all related points of entry
  • Reconnoiter all related locations, venues, accommodation, and social sites
  • Reconnoiter all emergency capability and procedures.
  • Vet all associated individuals, partners, companies, and agencies
  • Assess and establish links to all national security capabilities

Training to Counter Threat

Keel Strategic has developed a number of threat mitigation training programmes specifically geared to support international companies, organisations and teams. The Counter Threat Training Programmes are designed to ensure that participants are prepared to face the challenges of visiting operating and completing in a wide range of potentially hostile and challenging environments. Working with our clients Keel Strategic produces Tier 1 programmes attuned to individual organisation requirements.

Unlike most hostile environment programmes, Keel Strategic has ensured that all Counter Threat Training Programmes are interactive with lots of focus on practical learning sessions. This minimises classroom power point and encourages understanding and application of the various skill sets. Lessons and practical sessions are delivered by UK Special Forces Instructors. The programme is constantly adjusted and updated to ensure information and procedure currency and accuracy.
