For COSS, security is all about adding value. The benefits our security solutions bring our clients always outweigh their cost. Ultimately, this is achieved by proactively implementing risk-mitigation measures that reduce the frequency and financial damage of security issues such as terrorism, crime, civil unrest or piracy.

No two clients are the same, and no two COSS security solutions are the same. We always make sure to fully understand the nature of our client’s operations and employ in-depth intelligence-gathering to assess the actual threats they are facing. We then use this information to ensure that security resources are applied efficiently to protect the specific assets, locations or activities that are most important to guaranteeing the long-term integrity of whatever we are protecting, be it a task, a project or an entire organisation.

We emphasise properly allocating security resources across a project or organisation. This prevents common problems such as overly complex procedures and unnecessary checks from creating bottlenecks that disrupt the very processes the security should be trying to protect. At COSS, we believe in smart security: our security solutions never slow our clients down; they only ever help them work better.

We also make sure that our security services are always appropriate for the job at hand and do not create mistrust with locals or draw unwanted attention from threat groups. We know that long-lasting and sustainable security is not achieved by putting up barriers, but by building bridges. We believe in finding win-win solutions that are mutually beneficial for all relevant stakeholders and give them a vested interest in protecting a project, thereby creating mutually reinforcing layers of security.

Yet we know that the risk of security incidents and crises is unavoidable, even for the most well-secured of organisations. When taking tough decisions to deal with crises, our approach is the same as when trying to avoid them: everything revolves around ensuring our clients’ operational integrity.
