The oil and mining industry conducts much of its business in some of the world’s most remote and dangerous places. Oil and mining exploration occurs in third world countries where corruption and violence are part of the daily affairs. To further agitate the situation the industries face constant scrutiny regarding nationalized rights to resources such as oil, coal, gold, diamonds, and iron ore.
Security challenges for these industries are great, from risk of kidnapping and murder of their employees to vandalism of their facilities. AT-RISK consultants can assist in identifying vulnerabilities to existing and newly established efforts. Initial exploration efforts as well as product extraction and long-term facility establishment may require a variety of protective services:
- Close Protection for executives and scientists
- Transportation Security for teams developing raw product
- Facility and Pipeline Security services for the infrastructure
