An international company turned to Scopus to assist its executives who needed to visit the locale of an ongoing project located in a high-risk region of the Philippines. The region is a known hotbed of rebel and militant activity, with past attacks by both entities aimed at local as well as foreign targets. The security situation was therefore very fluid. The executives needed to fly into the region from the capital city, and then drive several hours to the location, and preferred to return to the capital on the same day.
The challenges presented in this mission were multi-layered and required that the Intelligence Desk join forces with the Operations team, in order to put together a detailed and informed security plan. The plan addressed the logistical as well as physical threats posed by such a high risk operation, and used in-depth analysis and real-time intelligence and monitoring as its foundation.
