The Problem

Just weeks before taking his company public, the CEO and founder of an elite technology firm started to worry about emerging security risks to his family. At his counsel’s suggestion, he reached out to our team. The executive asked for a comprehensive security assessment of his private residence as well as his family’s habits and practices, and an emergency management plan. “Let’s figure out where our greatest risks lie first,” he said. “Then plan how we are going to address them.”

The Solution

After conducting the security assessment of the client’s home and evaluating the risks facing the family, we used some of the most important key findings to draft the emergency preparedness plan. The plan was specifically tailored to the age and ability of the client’s children, the family’s several homes and the likelihood of a given incident impacting the family, ranging from severe weather events to an act of violence or terror in the neighborhood with many casualties, city-wide transportation restrictions, loss of Internet services and large-scale communications blackouts. It also included step-by-step instructions on how to shelter-in-place, suggested evacuation locations with maps showing primary and secondary walking and driving routes and recommendations on stockpiling the appropriate supplies and equipment.

Its environment — such as health issues, new staff at the residences or changes in schools, jobs or office locations — and has engaged our experts to supplement this planning with ongoing social media and open-source online monitoring and reputation management. “My wife and I have talked about taking basic, pragmatic security steps like this for years,” said the client. “With our children at the edge of adolescence — and the significant changes we anticipate in our financial footprint and lifestyle — understanding the risks to our family and planning for them has been vital.”
