  • Consultants

  • Trainers

  • Forces

We also provide operative travel risk and security management solutions for companies, public authorities, institutions and organizations during foreign assignments. In this case, we cooperate with a highly reliable network of local security forces. SOTCON’s operational capacities are far-reaching, as its on-the-ground network extends from South America to the African continent, as well as Russia.

We develop case-specific strategic security concepts and handle their operative enforcement, based on a detailed assessment of each client’s individual needs. Our approach, which is founded on identifying all potential risks and on careful planning, begins by addressing the following questions:


  • What are the primary risk factors and what additional risk-bearing parameters must be accounted for in the development of the security concept?


  • Which processes, resources, organizational structures and de facto operational limitations must be taken into account?


  • How can the strategy be efficiently built around the client to ensure maximum effectiveness, without affecting their actual tasks and private life?
