Large Dredging Project in the Middle East Requires Security Consulting
MAX Security was contacted to propose and provide consulting to a large dredging project in the Middle East. This part of the Middle East involved complicated risks and threats. The MAX operations team needed to ensure that the project could be completed efficiently and safely.
RISK, THREAT, & VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT (RTVA)
Given the instability of the region and the numerous incidents that had taken place within it, MAX conducted a comprehensive RTVA to gain a complete picture of the threats facing the project and the likelihood of each threat’s occurrence during the operations. It was determined that criminal and terror activity such as IEDs (improvised explosive devices), sabotage, active shooting incidents, theft and extortion were the main threats against the project and its team. The availability of local security forces was also deemed inadequate and their deployment in case of emergency could not be counted on. By understanding the various threats to the project, MAX was able to design specially tailored procedures to ensure the safety of the workers, project managers, equipment, and dredging sites.
With the threats in mind, the MAX operations team developed several solutions to ensure project security. With both water and land-based areas to secure, regular patrols (boat, foot, and vehicle) were implemented throughout both terrain environments. Security perimeters were created with access controls and checkpoints, and clear guidelines on the reporting of abnormal events were established. Coordination and communication were also enhanced between the project coordinators and local security forces. For extra layers of protection, all movements by project staff were assisted by MAX Security personnel, and a quick reaction force was retained in the event of serious security incidents. A MAX Security senior operations manager was embedded within the project staff to supervise the security implementation.
With decades of experience in planning and executing large-scale security projects, MAX was able to assist in ensuring the safety of workers, project managers, and the construction site. Providing effective physical security solutions means planning every small detail around the client’s needs and tailoring those to the operating environment. MAX’s operators along with a world-class intelligence team create a synergy unmatched in the industry and can account for every detail from the macro to the micro to create the safest atmosphere possible.
The more chaotic the world becomes, the more you can rely on MAX to keep your business running as usual.
