A United States based global small engine manufacturing company with a facility in rural China had an immediate need to terminate a belligerent, abusive employee.
The employeewas rumored to be connected to one of China’s most notorious and dangerous mafias.
Without the support of local law enforcement or adequate internal resources to react, both intelligence data and physical protection services were required.
The client’s sense of urgency demanded prompt action, particularly because of the significant time zone variation.
Despite the significant time difference, SocoSIX Strategies utilized its global network of security expertise and global intelligence technology resources todetermine the validity of the employee’s alleged crime affiliation.
The intelligence was compiled and analyzed while security teams were deployed to the facility, vehicles were staged accordingly and human resources personnel were accompanied to escortthe employee from the premises.
The entire situation was resolved within 24 hours from when the client initiated the request for assistance.
Because SocoSIX Strategies was able to provide rapid, comprehensive service with impeccable execution, the threatening employee was safely removed without disrupting production, impacting morale or attracting negative attention.
A luxury retailer with a facility just across the United States border in Mexico, received a photo of a kidnapped employee in an unknown location that included a ransom message.
In addition to a recovery plan, the retailer required an immediate assessment of liability, ethical obligations and operational risks.
A virtual kidnapping was substantiated and extortion was confirmed.
Within 90 minutes, SocoSIX Strategies utilized its accessible network of high-risk operations expertise to connect the client with appropriate authorities and advise on how to engage the company’s Board of Directors.
Because SocoSIX Strategies swiftly assembled teams that included a diverse range of expertise, the client was able to react to the threat on both internal and external levels.
The client was connected with the applicable government entity to address criminal matters and was able to ensure operations continued without interruption.
A global manufacturingcompany with operations throughout Latin America required transportation and travel protection for its executive and regional leadership.
The company had very little security infrastructure for its sizable transportation needs and found managing multiple vendors to be problematic.
SocoSIX Strategies enlisted its vast, vetted network, representing a variety of competencies, to conduct thorough advance work as necessary while discretely and professionally accompanying the client throughout medium to high risk environments.
Proprietary assets and precisely prearranged itineraries were used to ensure both efficiency and confidence.
The efficient and innovative approach used by SocoSIX Strategies resulted in the implementation of a customized executive protection, secure transport and investigative surveillance program that continues to provide the client with a single convenient and economical security resource throughout the region.
A global technology company requested a risk and threat comparative analysis to support effective decision making with regard to a potential corporate expansion into one of three Latin American metropolitan areas.
The request entailed addressing a spectrum of potential threats to enable executive leadership to make an informed decision on which location would pose the lowest organizational risk.
An approach deeply rooted in field-proven intelligence operations, assessed criminal activity, cyber risk, transportation, health concerns and overall instability in each of the three metropolitan areas.
The rigorous intelligence-led analytic methodology ensured objective assessments on each environment and focused on ground-level impacts that present potential risk to human assets as well as operational safety and disruption.
A meticulous summary and calculated risk index brought greater context to true threats and risks in each area while providing actionable guidance for enhanced decision making.
A fortune 500 client in the manufacturing industry with an expanding presence in China requested armed executive protection and translation services for a newly assigned employee who had minimal experience in the region.
SocoSIX Strategies carefully considered targeted threats and crime rates with regard to American ex-patriots in the area and determined that the request was excessive and not financially sustainable.
A more practical, economical service package was proposed.
The client was matched with a trained, unarmed driver and a bilingual local liaison whose capabilities exceeded language barriers and afforded the client to successfully operate in a foreign environment.
During the initial 60 days of service, the liaison was tasked with increased levels of responsibility that included employee performance assessment, of employees, interviews, and other tasks that supported the plant managers objectives.
The cost-effective plan created by SocoSIX Strategies allowed the client to maintain full- time services at an acceptable level of risk.
Because of the effective collaboration with the liaison, over $100,000 of stolen merchandise was recovered, which led to enhanced security measures throughout the plant.
Customized security programs that include vetted bilingual security coordinators to facilitate travel and security operations from start to finish have been created for the client’s executives who travel in medium-high threat environments.
