Our people, systems and equipment assessment helps you ensure a competent, safe and competitive drilling asset operation to strike the right balance between business risk and operational targets, especially with regard to the integrity of well control equipment operations, by reducing inefficiencies and increasing staff and crew competence, maximising management system effectiveness and enhancing equipment reliability by optimising the way in which people, systems and equipment interact.

Information security services

Software and integrated systems represent one of the largest unguarded threats to the safety and reliability of operations. Our information security services help you mitigate against hackers targeting their Industrial Control Systems (ICS’s), by helping to identify vulnerability and reduce cyber risks and reduce non-productive time (NPT), through inventory and system criticality analysis, risk context development, threat identification, risk evaluation, credibility assessments, user awareness training, social engineering resilience and response planning and training.
