Understand the Threat of Man-Made Hazards
Did you know that terrorist attacks on facilities and infrastructure have increased by 381% in recent years? This is just one example of the many man-made hazards that continue to escalate.
Our Extreme Loads and Structural Risk team have curated a selection of resources to assist commercial targets and critical infrastructure in reducing their exposure and vulnerability to man-made hazards. With clients around the world, including several government entities, our goal is to enhance the protection and mitigation measures at vulnerable facilities. Our security and blast professionals remain experts in Facility Siting, Protective Design, Security, Threat and Vulnerability Assessments, Anti-Terrorism and Force Protection and more.
With over 50 years of experience, ABS Group supports organizations across a wide range of sectors in addressing Physical Security Risk Management concerns.
