Responding professionally to threats
Companies and individuals are increasingly exposed to inappropriate communication and threatening behaviour by current and former employees, stalkers and other individuals and groups. This can also lead to violence in the workplace and in their private spheres.
For those affected, assessing the risk is not the only challenge. The situation can also be extremely psychologically stressful and endanger the victim's reputation.
How we support you
We help you to identify, assess and mitigate threats when people, companies or organisations are the target of:
- Threats and extortions
- Diffuse attempts at contact
- Stalking and other fixated behaviour
We use a multidisciplinary team of crisis response consultants, investigators, lawyers, psychologists, linguistic forensic experts and profilers. On a case-by-case basis, the team is joined by other specialists, such as crisis communication consultants and personal protection officers.
To assess the credibility of threats, we use a range of analytical tools based on the latest scientific research.
We also provide advice on anonymous threatening letters or anonymous threats.
