A HOLISTIC APPROACH

Countermeasure Consulting Group (CCG) is one of the only security companies in the United States that offer extensive advice on how to PREVENT violence before it happens. A lot of security companies only offer advice on physical security, or on how to respond once an incident has happened. They do not have the capability or experience to assist you in developing an effective Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

CCG personnel have extensive experience in developing EAPs. We have psychologists and other personnel on staff who have a thorough knowledge of how mental illness affects behavior, how to recognize the warning signs of mental illness in the workplace or other public environments, These insights must be part of an overall security plan. Other security companies only offer services related to physical security.

DE-ESCALATION TRAINING (DEAL)

Countermeasure Consulting Group is the ONLY security company in the United States that offers this type de-escalation training. This training is crucial if you deal with the public and from time to time and sometimes confront angry, irate, or unsatisfied clientele.

DEAL is not hostage negotiation training. It is a method of dealing with angry individuals, specifically in the customer service realm, that usually causes both the client and customer to walk away from a situation feeling as if they won. This can be crucial in many circumstances because it can possibly prevent violence against you and your employees. DEAL can also assist you in keeping future business with clients because they leave a situation feeling satisfied about the situation and the interaction with your employee.

VARS

Countermeasure Consulting Group (CCG) is one of a few security companies in the U.S. that provide a Vunerability Assesement and Risk Study (VARS) for CEO, CFOs, high net worth individuals/executives, or facilities.  This study, a first of its kind in the security industry, examines the overall threat level of an individual or facility.  This threat level is determined using a variety of examinations and methods, and draws upon the vast expertise of CCG personnel.  It examines every possible threat, including open and closed source information, physical security, and internal and external threats.

EXECUTIVE PROTECTION ADVANCE

Providing physical security for executives is not enough. A lot of security companies provide personnel for training or staffing for executive protection. However, these companies and personnel have limited expertise and exposure to conducting a thorough protective advance. Additionally, these companies do not understand the full scope of protective advances and planning and logistics components.

Countermeasure Consulting Group’s Subject Matter Experts SMEs have extensive experience in protective operations, specifically protective advances. We can provide training and insight for your executive protection team on how to conduct a thorough protective advance.
