G4S Risk Consulting has secured a three-year agreement with cricket’s global governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC). G4S will now offer security advice to the ICC at the very highest level on matters of operational and strategic value.
G4S Risk Consulting’s Intelligence and Advisory Services team will provide the ICC with bespoke security risk assessments covering its tournaments, Test, One-Day and T20 matches around the world.
Adopting a truly global approach, the team will focus its services on many of cricket’s most iconic nations, including England, India, Pakistan, South Africa, Australia and the West Indies.
G4S will also produce daily monitoring reports and offer decision support to the ICC security team as it adapts to complex and shifting security environments. The team has developed a bespoke assessment methodology for the ICC that will ensure consistency and rigour in both approach and delivery.
“We’ve worked with the ICC for several years, supporting them at critical times with high quality analysis and advice,” explained Faraz Nasir, G4S Risk Consulting’s head of intelligence and advisory services. “The deepening of our relationship, covering all aspects of risk assessment services and positioning G4S as the security provider of choice, ensures that the ICC will continue to work with some of the best risk analysts in the industry. We look forward to partnering with the ICC as they continue to expand the game of cricket in a safe and secure manner.”
Chris Tetley, the ICC’s head of events, responded: “The ICC takes matters relating to safety and security very seriously. In this context, the ICC is pleased to extend its independent risk assessment services arrangement with G4S for another three years. The ICC is confident that G4S will continue to provide best security advice which, in turn, will help the ICC to make correct decisions. The ICC also hopes G4S will play a key role in the development of our security risk management programme.”
G4S Risk Consulting delivers an enhanced service by collaborating with G4S businesses and entities worldwide in an holistic approach that has subsequently supported its relationship with the ICC and other key clients. The team’s Global Forecast, which is published bi-annually, identifies and explains the key security trends that customers are facing around the world.
