National Business Crime Solution (NBCS), a not-for-profit organisation that enables the sharing of data between law enforcement agencies and the business community in order to reduce crime, has announced the introduction of a new consultancy service. NBCS Consultancy is specifically designed to help members and non-members alike configure effective security strategies, implement risk based deployment, address loss prevention and online fraud, and deliver effective policy and stakeholder management.

Corporate security expertise

NBCS Consultancy fully utilises the organisation’s extensive in-house expertise and is headed up by its managing director, Daniel Hardy, alongside policy and stakeholder director, Catherine Bowen, and fraud business development director, Alison Parkinson. They work closely with the NBCS analytical resources team located in Worcester and a full team of support personnel. NBCS experts all have recognised academic and professional security qualifications and come from a diverse range of corporate backgrounds. Daniel Hardy commented, “This wide ranging experience combines to ensure that NBCS Consultancy has unrivalled levels of knowledge and expertise that can be used to advise companies on the security of their assets through both human and technological means.”

NBCS members will be offered consultancy services at a preferential rate, while non-members are also able to take advantage

Consultancy for security exhibitions

NBCS members will be offered consultancy services at a preferential rate, while non-members are also able to take advantage. Companies that are part of the organisation’s Associate Membership scheme, and who have the platinum package, will receive one day of consultation per year. The recently launched Associate Membership scheme gives vendors unfettered access to senior decision makers at some of the nation’s most prestigious organisations, through NBCS events that are cost effective to attend, and which eliminate the hassle normally associated with conferences and exhibitions.

Security assessments

Thinking longer-term, NBCS Consultancy can conduct regular strategic security reviews, risk and threat assessments, and conduct security audits that are designed to meet a client’s specific needs. Regular reviews of existing security programmes and measures are advisable in order to maintain standards, as a security strategy that was relevant some years ago, might not be today. Daniel Hardy concluded, “The importance of a clearly defined and implemented security and loss prevention strategy cannot be overstated, and organisations in all vertical sectors now realise that expert guidance is an invaluable part of this process. The formation of NBCS Consultancy galvanises our extensive knowledge into one complete offering and we will continue to develop it to meet the ever changing needs of members and non-members alike.”
