The formation of Counter Threat Group (CTG) was initiated in 2015 as a result of research that indicated a negative risk profile associated with churches or “Houses of Worship” (HOW). Our research detected adverse trends early in 2013 prior to ISIS becoming a known commodity and prior to the Charleston church shooting.
We have recently expanded our focus to include other sectors including businesses, hospitals and school systems. As other vulnerable “soft target” sites continue to be sought and attacked through violent acts, terrorism and active shooters in the United States and abroad, the scope of CTG will expand to assist organizations in all industries to create and maintain sound security programs.
The core product provided by CTG is a Comprehensive Threat Assessment (CTA) of the physical premises of any entity regardless of size. The CTA provides a blueprint for enhancements to an existing security program or the creation of a new program. The CTA was developed and tested by an expanded network comprised of current and former accomplished military counter intelligence experts, cyber security experts, high level agency veterans as well as seasoned local law enforcement experts. Our CTA is not a “cookie cutter” approach to assessing threats that are common among other providers. The scope of each assessment is unique to the client’s organization and environment.
Our services are performed by individuals who bring an exhaustive compilation of talents, experience and knowledge of best intrusion techniques, deterrents and responses to intrusion, and most advanced technology capabilities available. We will constantly engage in relationships with individuals and organizations who exhibit the professionalism, expertise and skill sets to match identified and perceived risks and solutions.
