ISSL (INTERNATIONAL SECURITY SOLUTIONS LIMITED) – successfully supporting infrastructure and geopolitical projects.
 


Scope of Services
 
ISSL’s skills and experience that cover Security Risk Management, Business Intelligence and Investigations along with Intelligence and Information Management has allowed us to successfully support infrastructure and geo-political projects.
 
Our ability has allowed us to identify on a proactive basis future trends and potential difficulties that have allowed us to design and implement, on behalf of Clients and agencies, programs that manage risk and reduce the exposure to future problems.
  
Expert Example
 
A recent example of this has been support given to an Oil and Gas Field Security Management project in the Eastern Mediterranean. The physical and political spread of the project impacts into two countries which have a history of conflict which has and is making the geographical area unstable. ISSL was requested to define and give suggestions in how to implement and manage the infrastructure to secure the fields and product once they had been extracted.
 
The company has also been involved in advising the European Partners in Joint Venture projects with infrastructure projects whose partners have been nation states of Central Asian countries of the Former Soviet Union. ISSL’s responsibility was to ensure that the European Partners investments were as secure and properly managed as could be.
