From corporate investigations and due diligence to kidnap and extortion prevention and covert surveillance, we provide expert advice to businesses and individuals on a broad range of security matters.
The rewards of a transaction or relationship can be significant if successful – but, if not fully researched, the costs can be considerable.
We provide commercial and personal due diligence services for those working with third parties – whether from the UK or abroad – for the first time, or when proceedings do not go to plan.
Our fully vetted team has experience in the intelligence services and can leverage their networks to give you deeper insight to your counterparty and the confidence to proceed.
We carry out our investigations with the highest integrity, avoid putting our clients at risk and ensure everything we do is methodical, professional and delivers real insight.
We provide investigation services to organisations concerned about internal practices, intellectual property theft, corruption or fraud.
Our investigators have years of experience and training in government agencies, always operate with integrity and will ensure that evidence they gather can be presented in court.
We agree the objectives with you at the start, then effectively manage each operation and provide you with regular updates.
We don’t simply provide the facts: we assist you by offering advice to support the decisions you make.
In an increasingly dangerous world, it is possible – however unlikely – that one of your staff may be involved in an incident while away on company business.
Knight Security can help you implement innovative policies and practices that will reduce the likelihood of threats to either your organisation or its staff.
We will ensure you have contingencies and procedures in place that can immediately deal with emerging situations. We also offer a 24/7 crisis support centre to provide international support whenever you need it.
Whether you are a business, an individual or a family, Knight Security can help you mitigate the risk of kidnap and extortion – from advising on robust policies and personal security, to crisis management if such an incident occurs.
These situations are often fast-moving, complex and emotional, and it is crucial that those affected get the best advice and a swift resolution.
Our experts have handled more than 200 kidnaps as practitioners, tacticians and strategists – without loss of life – and provide the calm, practical advice and support required. We can deal with law enforcement agencies, drawing on several years of kidnap and ransom experience inside the services.
Using our team’s experience in the UK government’s security services, we deploy best practices and cutting-edge technology to protect your communications.
Our services range from behavioral and technical advice, to installation and support of a range of encryption technologies for landline, mobile, email and instant messaging.
Knight Security provides private and corporate clients with advice on travel to locations all over the world.
From simple best practice advice to end-to-end travel management, we use local insight, conduct risk assessments, produce itineraries and procedures, liaise with embassies, and provide security teams and an international support line for incident management.
Our experience with the security services and Foreign Office provide peace of mind, allowing you or your clients to focus on the other priorities of their trip.
Any individual or organisation is a potential target for criminals.
Our team has deep experience of conducting penetration tests using CPNI methodologies to assess risks to sensitive sites, including government facilities and private organisations with sites operating under List X.
We highlight potential vulnerabilities in your physical and IT security systems and processes, and provide practical advice and assistance to help you address them.
Businesses or individuals working in high-value transactions are often exposed to electronic surveillance measures. So Knight Security regularly carries out counter-surveillance inspections to ensure they are not at an unfair disadvantage.
We can advise you on detecting whether electronic surveillance is being used against you, and explain how you can enhance the security of your mobile and fixed communications and IT systems to become a harder target.
Knight Security conducts discrete surveillance exercises to provide intelligence for corporate investigations and selective private clients.
We work with you to agree the objectives, use only government-trained operatives, and provide regular updates.
We operate with the highest levels integrity and professionalism at all times and are experienced in providing evidence should it be needed in court. Crucially, we ensure our operations are never exposed.
Also, we can advise on the purchase and installation of covert surveillance equipment – whether worn on the body worn or built into vehicles – which you can monitor and manage yourself.
Knowledge is power, and nowhere more so than in business.
With direct links to the UK intelligence community, our teams of researchers can provide a unique insight into your business environment, competitors and potential partners, giving you the edge in understanding the dynamic in any deal.
Whether it is in-depth due diligence on individuals and their backgrounds or sourcing information on specific transactions, our services can make the difference in successful negotiations.
