With 170 years as a leading global provider of comprehensive risk management solutions, we know how to respond quickly and effectively when our clients are faced with a detrimental, and often unforeseen, threat.


In times of crisis, we are by your side from start to finish. Our end-to-end solutions unite comprehensive strategy and implementation of services via experienced Pinkerton agents. Our scalable services are tailored to match your unique needs and can range from immediate incident response to a fully dedicated program.

We can help navigate your organization through a crisis by providing continuity between your strategic objectives and the implementation of tactical services. Our ability to implement immediately and accurately lies in our proprietary methodology, which we leverage to analyze your unique total risk perspective, at a granular level.

You don’t have to sacrifice business continuity in times of crisis. Whether your facilities have been hit by a devastating hurricane, civil unrest, a labor disruption, or workplace violence — it is crucial to partner with a comprehensive risk management provider that is experienced, quick to act, and reliable.


A complete enterprise security plan encompasses crisis management response protocols, established beforehand, in case of a certain emergency. With the multitude of global risks at large, organizations need to be fully prepared for the full range of threats present.

While some risks are common among organizations and can be insured, there are unforeseen, non-insurable risks that organizations fail to recognize and prepare for. Non-insurable risks can include:

  • Reputational risk
  • Regulatory risk
  • Trade secret risk
  • Political risk
  • Pandemic risk

At Pinkerton, our agents are experts at helping you prepare for and mitigate these risks. Following the completion of an effective threat response operation, we will consult with you to shift your organization’s strategy from reactive to proactive.


In today’s world, it is critical to have contingencies in place in the event of a natural or man-made disaster, act of terrorism or any other unpredictable calamity. Our response services team can work with you to prepare for – or respond to – emergency events. Because we maintain a global network of offices and resources, we are capable of handling evacuations in many of the world’s hot zones.


We’ll help you prepare for, and respond to, any emergency. We help you map out your emergency response procedures and requirements in advance so you’re never caught off guard. Offering a global network of offices and resources, we are highly experienced with rapid and massive evacuations.

Our team incorporates local personnel who know the language and infrastructure, enabling us to evacuate people rapidly when necessary. And our Protective Intelligence keeps you abreast of evolving information as it unfolds in near real-time.


Our scalable armed security and response solutions go beyond protecting just your company’s assets and your employees. When a threat is directed at a principal’s family or close associates, we can provide the auxiliary protection required for those individuals at risk.


In today’s volatile workplace, your organization needs to be prepared for anything and everything. In some cases, reduction in force or the closing of a facility can pose a safety and security risk. Companies need to be prepared for a wide variety of potential employee reactions, including the possibility of hostility toward other employees and/or management. In other cases, it may be the termination of a troubled employee that has the makings of a disastrous situation.

We help you prepare contingency plans before any high-risk terminations take place and we can administer threat management procedures to help you mitigate workplace violence episodes.


Major civil action and disturbances occur frequently throughout the world due to political, religious, ideological, and other reasons. Mass protests and demonstrations can become violent and place your organization and people at risk.

Pinkerton’s Civil Unrest & Disturbance Security provide your company with a global network of resources to place protection when and where you need it. Our Protective Intelligence allows us to monitor changing situations 24⁄7, and we quickly scale our services and resources as needed while conditions fluctuate.


We specialize in custom solutions for our clients. Our assess + design + deliver approach paired with our global expertise will work for you. It’s rare that organizations know precisely which services they want. That's why we assemble pertinent services for common solutions to modern day orginazational needs. Our advisors work closely with you to build a toolkit and roadmap that are best in class. We always consider your organization's unique risk profile.


During periods of downsizing, layoffs, plant closures, and labor disputes, it is critical for your company to have the proper education and information to protect your assets and people. We provide industry-leading workplace safety training for educating your staff. By tapping into our global network of resources we can provide protective and technical assistance using real-life situations as a guide.

In the event of a workplace disturbance, we offer a wide range of risk-mitigating solutions for companies around the world. Some of our most frequently-requested services before and during workplace issues include:

  • Risk assessments of physical properties, policies, and procedures to identify threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences which then creates a roadmap for your organization to develop your security contingency plans
  • Driver services (armed or unarmed escorts) for management or executives to or from their home, place of business, plant sites, etc.
  • Residential executive protection (armed or unarmed) for management and executives when and where it’s needed
  • Global asset or site protection including sensitive or vital facilities
  • Strike surveillance teams (when and where permitted by law) which include licensed videographer and documenter services to observe and record any illegal strike activity
  • Meeting and event threat monitoring often coordinating with client security personnel (CSOs, FSMs, SSM, etc.), Securitas, and/or additional outside guarding companies to provide guard force management
  • TSCM (Technical Surveillance Countermeasures) sweeps of conference/ meeting rooms, boardrooms, negotiation sites, plus telephone and mobile devices
  • Liaising with local law enforcement prior to and during the work action or strike


We have helped prepare disaster management plans and execute disaster recovery solutions for all types of catastrophes. Our services can protect company assets and employees nearly anywhere in the world. We’ve been called in to help in the aftermath of large-scale disasters, including:

  • Massive infrastructure failures following Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Sandy and Wilma
  • A very large and violent Taiwanese earthquake
  • Forest fires that rampaged through the western US and destabilized the region
  • Oklahoma’s devastating F5 tornado, which caused roughly $2 billion in damages

Situations and information can change quickly during a natural disaster or a crisis. Our globally-connected intelligence provides access to real-time alerting to ensure you know exactly what’s going on, when, and where. We can adjust our emergency response as situations change in order to maximize protection of your organization and assets.
