For private + public schools

Active killer events are often the situations people think of when it comes to school safety and security. They are low-probability, high-consequence scenarios that warrant specific training.

Risk Strategy Group uses a data-driven approach to create training based on real-world information. Training options can include:

For businesses, non-profits + NGOs

Private businesses, non-profits, and NGOs have specific needs, especially when it comes to international travel.

Risk Strategy Group can help your organization know what to look for and how to respond to the variety of situations it may face. Customized to your needs, our training options include:

Identify your vulnerabilities, execute the right training, and mitigate potential risks

Risk Strategy Group was founded on the idea of being data-driven. History has taught us that personal experiences are often very unique and can often drive emotional responses to problem solving.

In an effort to balance this natural response, our focus has been on using real-world data to guide our  process of identifying vulnerabilities, executing the right training, and mitigating potential risks.

This process allows us to create unique solutions that can often look very different from what others are doing. 

Individuals, non-profits, organizations, and government entities have been successfully partnering with us since 2017.
