According to the I.R.S., if a bonafide business-oriented security concern exists, a company may
exclude certain expenditures related to an employee.
The Personal Security Assessment is used to establish a baseline of threat. It serves as the backdrop from which a personal security program is pulled together and exercised when necessary. It is a roadmap of an individual’s
vulnerabilities and when leveraged correctly provides critical information in the response to emergencies. The success of a personal security program hinges on the accuracy of a PSA. Our consultants work
closely with corporate executives, high net-worth individuals and their families to identify current threat conditions and lifestyle dynamics to determine the resources required to establish and implement an
effective and reasonable personal security program.
FocusPoint has built a global reputation by helping organizations
assess the risks to their corporate survival and ensure that their
employees and assets receive the highest levels of protection.

Experience: Others consider success by the number of their dedicated installations. FocusPoint works to make a client successful by integrating best practices gathered over time from multinational companies that operate in high-risk, unstable environments.
Global Reach: Others carve out a niche in a specific industry or region. FocusPoint empowers partners in any region and any environment.

Strategic Intelligence Service
FocusPoint’s Strategic Intelligence Service (SIS) supports a client’s corporate decision makers in
highly innovative ways. First, SIS analysts deliver forecasts that assess global threats with a
robust early warning system that activates when conditions erupt. But SIS provides much more
than daily or monthly intelligence briefings.
A key part of the SIS strategy is its commitment to develop an in-house intelligence gathering
capability for clients. By offering this amazing benefit, FocusPoint’s SIS experts will:
Partner with company personnel and teach them how to gather and evaluate their own intelligence.
Train company analysts on how to use their findings to identify business risks and forewarn global business disruptions.
Teach analysts how to assess readily available open source information, synthesize and analyze relevant facts, and turn those data streams into actionable intelligence.
Ensure that a savvy workforce understands their part in identifying business opportunities and threats based on the company’s strategic objectives.
SIS analysts, then, take on a more global focus to their travel intelligence gathering. Based on their years of experience with Fortune 500 clients, SIS experts can also provide in-depth, confidential security
investigations into such sensitive topics as crisis management, resiliency planning, and brand protection.
