Southern Harbour is an independent specialist risk advisory service. Our team of experts works within the client team to explore the nature of the business operations, external service dependencies and risk exposures. This includes risks posed by the natural environment ranging from extreme weather to seismic events, both directly to business operations and indirectly to the external services and supply chains upon which they depend. We do the same for risks inherent to the business operations in a changing context, as well as understanding local community and market relationships, cyber and personnel risks, and project these over the client planning horizon. This can be used to inform long term strategic plans. The analysis is evidence-based, objective and repeatable, providing a qualitative and quantitative output that is entirely auditable and can be maintained as a living model to inform future planning. It is tailored to the client organization and operations, and absolutely confidential. Our clients have one thing in common, they are in the business to stay in business. We help them achieve their objectives by understanding the changing risk context. We often operate through other companies, such as insurers and management consultancies, providing services for particularly complex operations or where the consequences of business interruption are extreme.
