Security Risk Assessments

Concerned about security-related risks, threats, and vulnerabilities? Blue Glacier’s enterprise security risk assessments create and protect value in your organization.

Our risk assessments are some of the most holistic and thorough in the industry and are also consistent with the latest U.S. and international risk management standards. Additionally, they are structured and customized to each client — our priority is to assess matters significant to your needs, mission, objectives, risk profile, culture and risk appetite.

Not only do we use a well-defined methodology, we are impartial, independent, and objective. We are also not affiliated with hardware providers; our countermeasure and mitigation recommendations are made solely on the basis of your safety and security needs rather than any outside interests.

Virtually unique among our peers, we also include opportunity analysis in our risk assessments, if applicable. We identify unmet/underserved customer/client needs, target markets, and resource capacity to undertake opportunity.  We also identify potential cost savings in your security program (while maintaining or improving security effectiveness and efficiencies), if applicable.

Below is an example of our geographic information systems (GIS)-based analysis we include in all our risk assessments.  Using the latest geospatial tools, we have mapped all the crimes that occurred in 2022 within one mile of the White House.  The map also features all first responder locations (e.g., police stations and fire stations) and hospitals within that one-mile radius.  Our risk assessment maps and GIS analyses also include other items not featured on the example map below.  We will provide our future risk assessment clients with this type of online, interactive map, unique in the security industry.
