Event Risk Managment: An Adversarial Mindset

Assigning a large number of protective agents to a high-profile event is no longer sufficient to counter realistic threats; we must pre-plan such events with an “adversarial” mindset.

The “Red Team” concept is a strategic military and intelligence organization component used to break away from institutionalized cultural “group think” to foresee an attack from an adversary’s point of view.  Then test an organization’s readiness to withstand and detect a targeted attack.

Sometime known as non-destructive physical Penetration Testing, Red-teaming can predict the enemy’s most likely avenue of attack, and therefore give us insight into comprehensive protective measures.

Large crowds can be especially difficult to work.

Today, a pre-incident analysis is the best-practice protocol to predict the primary locations you need to either secure when planning the security and response aspects of a major upcoming event.

Can you pick out our protective agent? It’s not the guy in the suit.

Trident consultants have the experience of planning large events and deploying such assets as:

  • Plain-clothes, armed or unarmed protective agents dressed to blend in with attendees
  • Plain-clothes, armed or unarmed counter-surveillance operatives dressed to blend in with attendees
  • Uniformed and plain-clothes law enforcement
  • Unformed protective agents dressed as ticket-takers or usher
  • Paramedics and other medical professionals
  • Armed response teams made up of skilled law enforcement and private sector professionals
  • Protective Drivers
  • Protective Escorts to watch over individuals to and from parking lots, nearby venues
  • Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) services
Or, we can dress the part.

We customize our protective services based upon numerous factors such as, but not limited to:

  • Physical size of venue(s)
  • Number of doors
  • Number of attendees
  • Threat Assessment/Known Threats
  • Additional tasking requested by clients
No venue is too large.
