Consultancy Knowledge + Experience
Foundations of a secure and sustainable business go beyond selling merchandise, revenue generation and identifying new markets. Far too often, physical protective measures are instituted, but the consequences of natural or man-made disasters do not get the right attention attributed to operational commitments, lack of time or in-house expertise. That is where security consultants play a vital role by offering independent and objective advice to organizations in curtailing business vulnerabilities through comprehensive risk analysis, in-depth reviews of emergency preparedness, and support capacity building initiatives through continuous awareness, planning, training, testing and making practical improvements towards a resilient and sustainable business. At Hemaya, we understand the needs and requirements of organizations operating in various domains including Government, commercial and corporate. Accordingly, our security consultancy solutions are designed to work around customer's business objectives with the aim of adding value without affecting the operating environment.
