Knowing your risks, threats, and vulnerabilities is the foundation to developing an impactful security program.
Most organizations are not aware of what security risks they face and are not prepared to deal with the consequences.
GRA Maven’s team of highly experienced security experts use proven assessment methods and techniques, designed to identify threats and vulnerabilities, challenge analytic assumptions, and anticipate potential risk-based scenarios. We then use these results to develop a client-specific mitigation plan to reduce the risk.

SECURITY POLICY DESIGN & REVIEW
Well-organized policies and clearly defined procedures strengthen an organization’s position against an uncertain future.
Many organizations do not have written and documented policies and procedures in place that are communicated and understood by all members of the team.
The cornerstone to any organization’s security and safety is establishing and enforcing thorough and judicious security policies. The increasing threat of an active shooter or home-grown terrorist attack has forced many local and state governments to implement laws that require businesses to develop and rehearse security protocols. GRA Maven’s team of counterterrorism and security experts will evaluate your company’s policies and procedures and provide recommendations needed to meet compliance.

FACILITY PENETRATION EVALUATIONS
Proactive assessments compliment defensive security assessments.
GRA Maven has the ability to provide penetration testing, designed to simulate a threat actor gaining access to client facilities and/or sites. We accomplish this by using highly trained former special operations personnel and law enforcement professionals who possess peerless expertise in this field. GRA Maven personnel use their experiences to perform the covert actions typically used by malicious criminals. This testing is extremely useful in identifying gaps in your current security programs.

Physical penetration testing is a process used to gauge the existing security posture of an organization or facility.
REALISTIC INCIDENT EVALUATIONS
A unified and coordinated effort takes practice.
The ability to measure a client’s emergency response preparedness is critical for policy analysis. Without a custom-built, scenario-based evaluation tailored to the organization, it remains virtually impossible to know how prepared a response system is for incidents such as a natural disaster, terrorist attack, or an industrial or transportation accident.
GRA Maven has the experience and resources necessary to analyze a client’s plans, policies, and procedures as they apply to incident response and management. We then develop realistic scenario-driven incident response exercises to identify gaps in, or absence of, a client’s response plans.

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM)
Many organizations possess highly sensitive, intellectual property that is subject to theft by threat actors planting technical devices to capture it.
Also known as a “bug” sweep, TSCM is a highly technical service that detects the presence of eavesdropping devices such as hidden cameras and microphones. The goal of a TSCM is to identify existing security breaches, potential weaknesses in technical security, and recommend mitigation steps necessary to reduce the risk.
