Aviation Risk Assessment
The foundation of any aviation security program
Objective results, not subjective speculation, that's what Planehook provides our clients. We take a systems engineering approach to risk assessments. The results...assessments that help our clients see where they can get the most security per dollar spent. This professional approach to security helps our clients justify to their corporate boards and shareholders, county/parish commissioners, city councils, and airport boards why any funds should be used for security.How does Planehook do this? We provide objective risk assessments by accomplishing for our clients...
  • Asset consequence analysis
  • Threat and tactics analysis
  • Vulnerability analysis

Combining the results of these three analyses into an overall risk assessment provides our clients with a clear picture of... 

  • What assets of consequence are at greatest risk
  • From whom or what these assets are at risk
  • What are the exploitable vulnerabilities of these assets
Using this approach Planehook creates a clear, objective assessment of the aviation risk. This approach in turn aids our clients in creating the Return-on-Investment justification for spending ANY funds for security. That's good, objective business.
It's how we help our clients keep their
security costs contained.
