Post Incident Analyses

In the event of a major incident or continuity disruption, Newrisk Limited is available to advise clients as to effective mitigation measures and assist in the implementation of future prevention counter measures.

Post incident analyses have been undertaken by Newrisk Limited and its advisors on a number of catastrophic incidents involving:

Advice to government and management of recovery units has been undertaken by Newrisk Limited and its advisors. 

Pre-emptive post incident analyses have been undertaken where incidents or extreme threats have led governments and organisations to review their procedures and vulnerabilities to catastrophic threats.  This work has covered at the most extreme: nuclear, chemical and biological attacks, terror attacks involving suicide bombings, vehicle bombs and militia style attacks on cities, radiological devices such as dirty bombs and radiological poisoning, explosion and fire in industry, terror and cyber threats to major events including Sydney in 2000 and London in 2012, catastrophic security losses from fraud, cyber and human factors failures, environmental losses from shipping and port incidents, underground rail incidents in tunnels and on stations, power distribution failures, reputation and brand failures.

Post incident analyses may also be conducted in conjunction with recovery assistance and incident mitigation measures including employee self-protection advice.

To request a post incident analysis or to discuss a tailored package of services, please contact Newrisk Limited directly.

  • TEG7
  • Cyber Threats
In response to the Paris & Brussels attacks, Newrisk Ltd has become part of The Exercise Group7. The TEG7 LLP is a dynamic team drawn from cyber & former special defence fields to exercise organisations & governments on emerging terror threats.  The TEG7 profile can be seen at www.teg7.co.uk.  The level of casualties from shooting attacks (as with the Bataclan (France) in 2015; Brussels airport (Belgium), Ataturk airport (Turkey), Nice beach (France) & Berlin Christmas Market (Germany) in 2016; & La Reina Nightclub (Turkey) in 2017) are the result of military style incursions by terrorists determined to maximise casualties.  Home grown terror threats are increasing in many countries - the New York & New Jersey bombs found in 2016 & the numerous disrupted plots in the UK, Germany & France - indicate serious changes in terror capability which may be made more dynamic as ISIS fighters return to their home countries.

Cyber threats are changing from loss of data & privacy to loss of control of business systems & more seriously reconnaissance attacks on critical infrastructure including energy grids.  The fragility of highly connected systems will become more serious in 2017 with open system dependencies (driven by business innovation).   Degraded capacity operations will become essential if persistent attacks affect critical infrastructure.  Exploiting cyber weaknesses are (i) criminals with ransomware & (ii) nation states aiming to disrupt, deter or signal capability against target countries.  The Ukraine power attacks remain a lesson for critical infrastructure losses.  Aviation remains the industry ‘canary’ for cyber failures & cyber forensics must evolve to close open investigations (as in the case of MH370).
