What we do
about

Bespoke Security Solutions

Our underlying philosophy is a simple one: that all our clients have individual needs and expectations.

Rose Associates is a niche Security, Resilience, & Risk consulting practice. We listen carefully to each individual client and provide bespoke services tailored to meet their unique requirements – there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach.

We specialise in counter-terrorism in all its forms. Our risk-driven approach includes building and counter-measure design through to operational planning and response. Undertaking large infrastructure, we operate mainly in the Middle East, Africa, the Former Soviet Union, and Europe; enjoying excellent relationships with government agencies and International Corporations in these regions.

Our Omani owned franchise, Rose Associates, is registered in Oman and Rose Associates International Ltd is registered in the UK.

Our Services

Our core business is Resilience, Security and Risk Management.

Threat and Risk Assessment (TARA)

From experience we have found that a structured approach to assessing threats and analysing the associated risks is essential if organisations are to make informed, defensible decisions about managing those risks. A properly conducted TARA fulfils a number of functions:

  • Provides an audit trail for decisions and development of plans
  • Informs the design and/or security audit of new or existing premise
  • Informs the selection of risk mitigation measures and operational procedures
  • Informs contingency planning

Security Audit

With strong backgrounds in Military Security and Counter Intelligence, Police Crime Prevention and technical security design, we deliver a benchmark standard in professionalism, proportionality and common sense. Our Security Auditing methodology relates directly back to our tenets of Threat and Risk Assessment and Security Planning. We review existing measures against agreed threat vectors and gauge their effectiveness against benchmarked best practice. Our resulting report provides an assessment of vulnerability and a set of mitigations to reduce it.

Security Planning

Security Planning covers a wide range of interconnected services that are delivered throughout the life of a project. The level of security planning applied to a specific project is directly related to the output of the TARA. Defined elements include:

  • Operational Security planning
  • Technical Security Planning
  • Physical Security Planning 

Counter Terrorism

Our world leading team drawn from multi-disciplinary backgrounds in engineering, specialist consulting and government agencies gives us an in depth understanding of building design, issues of construction and the importance of interaction with the Client and design team to achieve the desired level of building resilience in a terrorist event.

Contingency Planning / Crisis Management

Using latest methodology, standards and compliance from the Business Continuity Institute, UK Emergency Planning College and FEMA guidelines, we ensure robust emergency management plans commensurate with our Client’s real operational requirements.

Training

With a huge wealth of experience amongst our consultants, we provide trainers who are real world practitioners to organisations in governmental, corporate and hostile environments such as Russia, Nigeria and Khazakstan. Our trainers can deliver:

  • Security and Security Management
  • Intelligence and Intelligence Management
  • Hostile Environment Pre-Deployment / Executive Awareness
  • Surveillance / Counter-Surveillance
  • Defensive driving

Security Master Planning

Generating a safe and secure environment.

Security Master planning describes the integration of security planning into the early stages of general master planning of large-scale developments, installations, facilities and urban areas.

When properly performed, this activity not only generates a safe and secure environment for owners, operators and users of the space, but also significantly reduces the downstream costs of implementing security and resilience engineering, as the environment is already optimised for best-practice security and safety works.

Our experience includes Yas Island Abu Dhabi, Dubai 2020, Msheirib Heart of Doha, Elements of The World Dubai and New City of Duqm.
