Intelligence, Information Aggregation and Due Dilignece

CTSS is a firm specializing in alternative futures. It offers clients both a set of prospects, and then provides strategies to reach these futures. The CTSS advantage rests on its principals’ generic (energy, security and strategy) and geographical strengths (i.e., specific country/regional experience with leadership networks cultivated over decades). Small and select, CTSS stands apart from big, ‘public figure’ and ‘door-opening’ firms in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Brussels, London or Washington. Nor is it a risk assessment firm. It avoids routine political, security, energy and other geo-political reporting, and doesn’t ‘do’ public relations, product/service promotion, instead it provides real foresight, deep intelligence and advice on which the client can begin to base decisions.

Crisis Management - Safety & Security

CTSS Provides Comprehensive Crisis Management Services. CTSS principals are aware from their international experience that people, assets and business continuity is only as good as the last safety and security review. Criminals and terrorists are experts at collecting target information and finding security gaps which permits them to penetrate security measures. We can help mitigate these factors.
