London – Olympic Games

Providing security consultancy for the Olympic Games in London

Security Consultancy – London

London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG)

 Aegis was asked by LOCOG to provide specialist strategic and operational security advice. This involved consulting on security design, strategy, planning, operations, and corporate security. We also coordinated security services to provide a holistic approach that successfully kept the Games safe.

Our bespoke programme identified high-risk priorities, allowing security manpower to be used more efficiently.

Our approach involved using the most up-to-date methodologies. For example, we looked closely at the 2011 riots in England, and the role that social media played in prolonging and directing the disturbances. Drawing from that experience, we set about incorporating multimedia into security planning; for the first time taking into consideration the opportunities created by internet platforms.

Since the success of London 2012, we were asked to present our lessons learnt to the Brazilian authorities in anticipation of the 2016 games in Rio.
