Embedded Crisis Manager and Retained Intelligence Analysis

An expanding tech client in Amsterdam urgently required a crisis management and intelligence professional to help them deal with sharply increasing risks to their operations, reputation and people. Dragonfly Intelligence rapidly selected, vetted and embedded an experienced consultant within their global security team, who embedded just as the Covid-19 pandemic struck. By leveraging Dragonfly Intelligence resources and data, our embedded analyst was able to help keep the client on track with their goals and manage the increased demand for support from the business.

Embedded Security Manager

Unprecedented demand combined with global restrictions on movement presented a unique set of challenges for a global online content provider. Minimising disruption from team absences was business-critical so Dragonfly Intelligence was tasked to recruit, select an embedded regional security manager within the security team. Drawing on over four years of professional crisis and risk management experience, our embedded consultant helped establish a consistent and scalable crisis management system that has been tested and rolled out effectively on multiple physical sites often in new territories ensuring our clients continued growth and development through the uncertainty of 2020.
