Organizations face numerous risks when operating in diverse, complex environments often subject to threats and hazards such as elevated crime, weak rule of law, terrorism, pandemics and natural disasters. Using the international risk management standard ISO 31000 as our guide, we assist clients in quantifying risk; developing policies, processes, and procedures to evaluate and manage risk in addition to strengthening their organizational frameworks, management tools, training programs and operating procedures.

Constellis has supported many boards and management teams in reviewing their existing risk management and governance systems and building upon these findings to design and implement programs to manage risk and to provide assurance to key stakeholders. We aid our clients with developing policy and security standards, the design of the security organization, definition of security processes and the technical and physical measures required to support global and local programs. Our embedded advisory and management services provide ongoing support to ensure these changes are implemented effectively and deliver the full capabilities of Constellis through an embedded expert within the client organization.
