Exodus International specialises in mitigating the security threats that organisations and high-risk individuals face by providing effective and resilient solutions at a reasonable price.

Teamwork, effective communication and accountability form the basis of Exodus International’s management policy. Beginning with a thorough needs analysis, Exodus International can provide a comprehensive service in close partnership with the client to protect their interests. Strict confidentiality is assured at all times.

Risk Assessment / Security Surveys & Audits

Whilst human and material resources can be a company’s greatest assets, they can also be the company’s greatest risks. Some of the many internal and external dangers faced can be hard to identify and difficult to manage. Failure to recognise the risks or adopt preventative measures may have catastrophic consequences.

Theft of property, fraud, subterfuge and commercial intelligence gathering are common problems. Crimes, such as kidnap and ransom, assault, blackmail, harassment, work place violence, product contamination and industrial espionage, are also widespread, posing a serious risk to the operational efficiency, stability and morale of corporations, their management and employees.

The Risk Assessment conducted by Exodus International is designed to accurately assess vulnerabilities and analyse the potential risks posed to the client and the client’s interests. This normally involves a comprehensive survey and audit to examine the effectiveness of existing security measures and identify possible improvements.

Kidnap & Ransom Avoidance / Management

The abduction of tourists and workers for political or financial gain is on the increase throughout the world. Businesses also appreciate that it is not just their executives that may be at risk but those they hold dear, their spouse and children.

Kidnappers usually plan and prepare by gathering information and carrying out surveillance on their intended target. They may also test security measures and carryout a rehearsal. However, there are a number of pre-cautions and counter-measures that can be adopted.

* Avoidance Training
General guidance to potential targets, their families and domestic staff, close colleagues and friends.
* Profiling
Includes recording of details such as blood type and distinguishing marks, photographs, fingerprints and samples of DNA, hair, voice recordings and handwriting.

Electronic Counter Measures & IT Security

Domestic and commercial use of electronic voice, image and data surveillance devices is rife. Competitors, activists, journalists, private and government investigators, people with a personal grudge, disloyal staff, malicious hackers and professional criminals will often use technology to achieve their aim. Intellectual property is particularly at risk.

Most businesses realise the risks involved in using communication systems, computers and other technology but all too often they are assumed to be technical issues that can be easily overcome by implementing technical solutions. However, this is not always the case. Effective IT security should also encompass paper, electronic media, telephone conversations and intellectual property. It involves people, operational and business processes, culture, physical issues and legal and regulatory concerns. Organisations that wish to build secure infrastructures should embrace both the human and technical dimensions of information security and develop a properly funded strategy to combat security breaches.

Exodus International provides specialists in electronic counter-surveillance and IT security. They have state of the art detection equipment and some of the technicians learnt their trade working for Government intelligence and military agencies. Electronic examinations and the physical searches conducted are extremely thorough. These are usually carried out during silent hours and in secrecy. Tamper proof seals are used and electronic mapping profiles recorded to aide future sweeps.
