The Critical Difference™

Security Consultant Services

Our security consultants are renowned for applying proven strategies with innovative thinking in delivering effective solutions to today’s risk management challenges.

CIS Risk Management Solutions: 
Holistic Vision

Since 1993, CIS security consultants have assisted a diverse spectrum of organizations in improving their security and emergency readiness programs. Our diverse clientele include corporations, international government organizations, property management groups, energy companies, schools, hospitals, hotel chains, financial organizations, community organizations, and more.

In many cases, our mission is accomplishing through expert application of classic security and public safety measures. Our security consultants regularly assist clients with matters such as security risk assessment, physical security design, emergency response planning, expert witness testimony, threat assessment, executive protection, crime prevention planning, and other services within the scope of well-established doctrine.

Although our team is well recognized for their expertise, knowledge is only one facet of our reputation.

Over the past three decades, our security consultants have earned unique recognition for achieving success in situations where traditional approaches to security and public safety have failed. When addressing complex and difficult security challenges, knowledge alone is often insufficient. Effective solutions often require an artful combination of expertise, holistic vision, and innovative mindset.

Over the years, our clients have provided us the opportunity to apply our talents to a diverse range of challenges—urban crime and social disorder, terrorism, school violence, and more. And we are honored that the unique risk management strategies produced from our experience have been endorsed as best practice standards by professional peers, news media, and academic researchers around the world.
