Protective Services assists the private, public and government sectors to mitigate and manage risk within New Zealand or worldwide.

Dion Neill deploys highly experienced security specialists to assist with the management of any critical incident or threats of extortion, kidnapping or physical harm to private individuals, corporate executives, high-net worth clients or other people at risk.

The global risk climate has changed considerably over recent years, Dion’s approach to risk management is based on internationally recognised best practice.

The fundamental basis of a security review is to rate the risk in accordance with the Australia New Zealand Risk Management Standard and then prioritise the right solution based on the findings.

Dion and his team of security risk management consultants provide expert risk management advice to private companies, public organisations and government agencies from developing and implementing risk management strategies to mitigating the risk to people, assets and information.

When a serious threat is identified, Dion will deploy security specialists with support by private investigators to work inside a client’s business or property to manage and mitigate risk.

With the support of Dion’s security experts, the team will review the risk faced by a client according to the level of identified threat.

No two clients are alike, a number of issues including the nature of a clients business, public profile and geographical spread of assets can uniquely determine the level of exposure to any risk.

Dion and his team will identify, manage and mitigate threats to you or your organisation, anywhere in New Zealand or worldwide.

Business Contingency Planning 

Our philosophy is that no two clients or organisations are alike and that a number of issues including the nature of their business, profile of their employees and the geographical spread of their assets can uniquely determine their level of threat and risk exposure.
