Lost Boys believes that the key to effective crisis management is preparation.
Our experiences in the field of corporate investigations have taught us that management structures can be a primary source of security risk, particularly during times of crisis. Often, companies resort to pre-established or rushed crisis management procedures that focus upon the roles of their internal staff. Academics and practitioners who have studied this approach reveal its failings in terms of corporate resilience and business recovery. Findings highlight that staff retain the propensity to operate within unspecified pre-existing parameters, when systematic innovation is required instead. Effective crisis management requires the impartial perspective of an independent specialist such as Lost Boys, that is able to provide its clients with the appropriate guidance in their respective circumstances.
Combining our experience in covert policing, wherein dynamic decision making and continually evolving methods of risk assessment are essential, with our corporate and commercial knowledge, Lost Boys provides crisis management guidance to companies and organizations of all sizes, as well as private HNW households. We are also able to provide essential advice on how best to engage with the police and other services during crises, and may liaise with them on a client’s behalf if required. Moreover, our work in Miscarriage of Justice cases has enabled us to retain an extensive network of media and legal connections, which our clients may access in order to resolve a crisis.
