Case Study

  • Obtaining reliable information

    Problem

    An international company operating in the avionics sector contacted SKP Global Intelligence to verify some news regarding armed conflicts in an area of ​​Mozambique where they had their west African outpost and from where they operated flights, which had been suspended as a precautionary measure.

    Performed activities

    The Crisis Desk at SKP Global Intelligence immediately contacted local sources and obtained precise information regarding the context of the conflict, triggered by an act of retaliation by the terrorist organization Al-Shabaab for the arrest of one of their members the previous day, and reassured the client about the location of the clashes, which had taken place at a distance of more than 25 km from the client's base.

    Result

    Thanks to the information provided, the client resumed normal flight operations.

  • Surveillance

    SAFETY EVERYWHERE

    SAFETY EVERYWHERE

    Problem

    A well-known leading Italian business group operating in the field of raw material procurement contacted SKP Global Intelligence to ensure security in the transfer of its personnel to Libya and within the city of Tripoli.

    Performed activities

    SKP Global Intelligence, working side by side with one of its international partners, planned, organized and carried out a series of transfers to and from Tripoli without any incidents occurring. Clients were accommodated in safe houses in protected areas, while ground movements, operated with low-profile vehicles driven by both Western and local staff, were constantly monitored through GPS systems from the Operations Centers located in Tripoli and Milan.

    Result

    The activity was carried out without any incidents occurring.

  • Risk Management

    Post Daesh

    Post Daesh

    Problem

    A promiment Italian company operating in the Oil & Gas sector requested the intervention of SKP Global Intelligence to assess security conditions for the reopening of some sites which had been liberated from the presence of IS (“Islamic State”) some months before.

    Performed activities

    SKP Global Intelligence planned the execution of several on-site surveys carried out by a team composed of its own analysts and representatives of the client supported on site by a Force Protection squad provided by one of the local partners of SKP Global Intelligence. In addition, the drafting of Vulnerability Risk Assessments (VRA) reports was planned for each of the sites being analyzed.

    Result

    The activities are still under way.

  • Investigations

    Unjust Imprisonment?

    Unjust Imprisonment?

    Problem

    The lawyers of the family of the alleged perpetrator of a brutal murder in the province of Pavia (northern Italy) in 2007, who had already been found guilty and condemned by the Italian Court of Cassation, contacted our group to analyze evidence from the trial and assess any elements that could be useful to verify the truth.

    Performed activities

    The copious documentary material from the trial, which included (among other things) documents drafted by judicial police, consultancy reports, technical examinations, testimonies and photographs of the crime scene was carefully analyzed by our experts. This activity led to the identification of an individual who had never emerged in the course of the police investigation and who was related to the victim’s network of acquaintances.
    At the end of a sophisticated shadowing activity, SKP managed to obtain a sample of the subject's DNA and sent it to its laboratory. Test results revealed 99.9% compatibility of the sample with the genetic profile of a trace found at the time of the events on the crime scene and until then simply associated with an "unknown subject". This result was strengthened by further traditional investigative activities that led our team to piece together a consistent and precise body of evidence hinting at a possible involvement of the individual in the crime.

    Result

    The case is still pending before the European Court of Justice.

  • Surveillance

    The Amazons

    The Amazons

    Problem

    A wealthy entrepreneur from Eastern Europe requested protection service for himself and his family during a summer holiday in Sardinia. Since the man was together with his wife and three adult daughters, he asked for highly qualified female staff.

    Performed activities

    A team of six women was selected, composed of an area expert, a team leader, a specialist in Tactical Emergencies Casualties Care and three bodyguards. All the women in the team had served in elite corps of Italian and foreign armed forces and were skilled in extreme and/or combat sports. All were physically attractive, had knowledge of ceremonial and etiquette, were fluent at least in English and had a high cultural level.

    Result

    The service was performed without any incidents occurring and with great satisfaction on the client's part. He later decided to hire two of the six women as permanent members of his security staff.

  • Risk Management

    FOREST THREATS

    FOREST THREATS

    Problem

    A prominent multinational group operating rescues in sensitive areas commissioned SKP Global Intelligence to carry out a Vulnerability Risk Assessment report on the presence of possible threats on Chilean territory.

    Performed activities

    The analysts at SKP Global Intelligence drew up a detailed VRA report containing information provided by qualified local sources that allowed to restrict minefields from the Pinochet era on the border with Peru and the presence of the Mapuche indigenous people in the central area of ​​the country as the two main threat factors hindering a possible initiation of helicopter rescue activities in Chile by our client. A detailed mapping of mined areas was produced, and it was suggested that the setting up of a network of local intermediaries would be the best way to face with the second threat.

    Result

    Assessment by the client of the Chilean market as a possible new area of business expansion is still ongoing.

  • THE RIGHT PERSON AT THE RIGHT PLACE

    Problem

    A couple of professionals instructed SKP Global Intelligence to facilitate the return home of their adult daughter, who was being held against her will in Senegal by relatives of a man she believed to be her boyfriend, but who then turned out to be a dowry hunter.

    Performed activities

    The Crisis Desk at SKP Global Intelligence sought immediate contact with a local source working for the Dakar police, who went to the hotel where the young woman was reportedly being held. It appeared that the manager of the hotel, a relative of the woman's boyfriend, had withheld her passport, contacted her family and indirectly threatened them. Our local contact was able to retrieve the woman's passport, then took her to the airport and put her on a flight back to Italy.

    Result

    Thanks to the intervention of SKP Global Intelligence, exploiting informal channels and a network of acquaintances, the girl was able to return to Italy, where she was diagnosed with a serious form of dysentery. She did have to endure the love disappointment, but she avoided much more serious consequences.

  • Investigations

    A WISH COME TRUE

    A WISH COME TRUE

    Problem

    The relative of a woman who had gone missing contacted SKP Global Intelligence from Brazil to locate her. The few available traces, dating back to six months before, seemed to indicate she might be in Milan, Italy.

    Performed activities

    The scant available data did not allow us to identify the woman, who at first appeared as an almost ghost-like figure: there was no telephone number, no credit card, no acquaintance or presence on any social media. Since she appeared to lack all possible financial support, SKP Global Intelligence sent an investigator to scour the underworld of homeless people in Milan. After weeks of unrelenting search across the city, the woman, who appeared to have been living on the streets for several months, was finally found.

    Result

    As soon as he was informed that his relative had been found, our client came to Milan to meet her and then helped her face a long process of readjustment and normalization.

  • Surveillance

    SUCCESSFUL PLANS

    SUCCESSFUL PLANS

    Problem

    A well-known business group operating in civil aviation instructed SKP Global Intelligence to plan the implementation of an integrated program for the armed escort of its aircraft in case of emergency landing due to technical problems or adverse weather conditions.

    Performed activities

    A complex event management plan was drafted, based on the following aspects (among others):
    • Consolidation of a network made up of about 200 surveillance companies throughout the country;
    • Drafting of policies, operating procedures and standard crisis response practices for all surveillance companies;
    • Dedicated training of personnel responsible for managing emergencies and flight personnel belonging to the client’s company;
    • Use of the personnel and facilities of the SKP Operations Center, already active 24/7/365;
    • Development of mobile application dedicated to emergency event management;
    • Random tests and checks.

  • RESTRUCTURING OF SECURITY SYSTEM

    Problem

    A prominent consortium operating in the field of logistics contacted SKP Global Intelligence to perform a Risk Assessment activity on a warehouse compound that had been the target of several thefts, seemingly carried out from within.

    Performed activities

    A thorough study was carried out, including several on-site inspections leading to a Vulnerability Risk Assessment report, which identified numerous weaknesses and suggested active and passive countermeasures to increase the physical safety of the area. An undercover private investigator was also infiltrated into the inbound department, where most of the thefts had taken place, in agreement with the company management.

    Result

    The active and passive countermeasures adopted identified and neutralized an attempt to break into the compound from outside. The investigative activity carried out by the undercover detective made it possible to uncover a theft attempt made by a warehouse employee, which was neutralized thanks to the intervention of local police forces coordinated by SKP Global Intelligence. Through subsequent searches carried out at the employee's home, the authorities recovered other goods that had been stolen from the same warehouse in the previous months.

  • A MAN BECOMES ANOTHER MAN’S STROKE OF GOOD LUCK

    Problem

    A company operating in the food sector had its financial assets frozen by a Libyan bank. Despite intervention by a local lawyer and by the interim governor of the Libyan Central Bank, the situation did not seem to improve, at which point the company asked for assistance from SKP Global Intelligence.

    Performed activities

    After we realized that the reason behind the Libyan bank's management's reticence lay in the threat exercised by one of the Katiba chieftains that controlled the neighbourhood in which the bank was headquartered, we contacted the man through a childhood friend of his with whom SKP collaborates. The mediator's intervention allowed the transfer of those funds onto an Italian bank account.

    Result

    The client was able to retrieve the large sums of money that had been unlawfully withheld on Libyan territory.

  • Investigations

    THE DOWRY HUNTER

    THE DOWRY HUNTER

    Problem

    A wealthy family contacted SKP Global Intelligence after they suspected that an individual who had a relationship with their daughter (who was at that time still living with them) was dating her with the aim of obtaining financial advantages from the relationship.

    Performed activities

    The man was subjected to intensive shadowing, without anything substantial resulting from it. Our agency then decided to move on to a more specifically targeted activity and contacted the man's ex-girlfriends, some of whom were available to speak to our investigators. They gave details about the man's behavior with them, which was often aimed, so they said, at obtaining access to their patrimony.

    Result

    The information collected was given to the family so that they could act in the way they deemed to be most appropriate in the circumstance.

  • Risk Management

    Reputation

    Reputation

    Problem

    A well-known amusement park contacted us to draw up a Crisis Communication Plan aimed at managing possible negative communication fallout from accidents.

    Performed activities

    We based our plan on an old adage according to which "it takes 20 years to build a reputation and 5 minutes to destroy it". Analysts at SKP Global Intelligence developed a series of measures:
    • setting up of a Crisis Response Team with the company;
    • identification of a spokesperson and a vice-spokesperson;
    • definition of a corporate communication strategy and the contents thereof;
    • choice of media to be used;
    • immediate presence of the park's top management on the site in case of accidents;
    • immediate removal of all forms advertising from the park's website and any other form of advertising in case of accident;
    • posting of an official notice on the park's website stating that the management and staff of the park share the feelings of the victims' families ;
    • prompt organization of a press conference in which the park's spokesman expresses the management's commitment to helping the victims through damage compensation funds or refunds for healthcare or funeral services costs.
    • provision of adequate psychological support for victims and family members;
    • supply of water and other basic provisions for rescuers and other people present on the site of the accident;
    • marketing and incentive initiatives to be carried out in the following weeks;
    • monitoring activities to verify customer response levels.

    Result

    To date, no accidents have occurred in the park.

    STAGE GHOSTS

    STAGE GHOSTS

    Problem

    The editorial staff of a well-known national television program was looking to locate a male child born of a mixed couple (Italian mother and Algerian father) who had been abducted by his father and taken to the father's family home in order to be raised in accordance with his country's traditions. The relatives of the child's (now deceased) mother asked the TV program's staff, which in turn asked SKP, to locate the child so that he could be brought back to Italy.

    Performed activities

    We activated our network (specifically, some contacts we had in the Algerian police) in order to identify the boy's family. Our Algerian collaborators got in touch with them and negotiated a meeting with the child's maternal grandmother, after initial reluctance from the family. Our staff then accompanied the woman and the journalists who filmed the meeting.

    Result

    The plan was carried out smoothly without any incidents occurring. The family reunion finally took place.

    UNITY IS STRENGTH

    UNITY IS STRENGTH

    Problem

    The residents of a building in the outskirts of Rome complained about the presence of a dangerous gang of petty drug smugglers in the surrounding area.

    Performed activities

    We filmed the smuggling activity and found hidden caches of drugs. We also identified some regular customers of the smugglers. The latter were followed to their homes and identified. The information gathered was passed on to the competent authorities, who conducted an independent investigation based also on material produced by SKP and were then able to stop the drugs sale.

    Result

    The building's courtyards and open spaces were restored to their original function as a playground for children and the level of security perceived by the community increased.

  • A HIGHLY INNOVATIVE SHOPPING CENTER

    Problem

    A well-known international group operating in the large-scale retail business contacted SKP Global Intelligence to evaluate the most appropriate measures to prevent and mitigate the consequences of possible terrorist attacks while designing a new site in Germany.

    Performed activities

    A thorough evaluation was carried out including numerous inspections, at the end of which a series of countermeasures were suggested. Among them:

    • double-circuit CCTV, one visible and one hidden;
    • building of hidden gates and openings, such as light, easily removable walls, to be made available to the police forces in case of of SWAT operations and allow unexpected surprise break-ins by the police that cannot be prevented without specific prior knowledge;
    • protection of pillars and other strategic structural elements of the building with advertising dispensers, notice boards and other objects with the aim of avoiding the close positioning of bombs against supporting columns;
    • structural strengthening of supporting columns;
    • allocation of internal slots located close to the external perimeter of the shopping center exclusively as warehouses and service areas, placing the slots used as shops as much as possible within the building;
    • preparation of gathering sites for injured people and evacuated civilian personnel, readily available for facilitated access to rescue vehicles and police forces;
    • remote operations center in an area distant from the shopping center to avoid seizure by commandos;
    • ...other measures of a confidential nature.

    Result

    Adequate anti-crime architecture deters criminal actions, allows for easy control of facilities and in this specific case, if adequately advertised, can guarantee an improvement in terms of image.

  • A LONG AND HOT SUMMER

    Problem

    The municipal administration of a town in northern Italy was worried about a series of thefts and acts of vandalism that had been carried out during the night in outdoor swimming pools.

    Performed activities

    A surveillance plan was designed with private investigators in plain clothes who were sent in turn to the various pools following a statistical analysis carried out by SKP Global Intelligence on the events recorded in the previous weeks.

    Result

    The intervention of private investigators working for SKP Global Intelligence allowed, together with the local police authorities, to identify and report to the police two individuals for attempted theft and five other individuals for vandalism.

  • Large-scale security

    Problem

    A company operating in the field of renewable energy contacted SKP Global Intelligence to create a complex surveillance and security system for a series of photovoltaic plants located in the south of the country.

    Performed activities

    A complex video surveillance system was created, remotely controlled 24/7 with our Operations Center, including an integrated break-in detection system with radio frequency motion sensors.

    Result

    To date, no burglaries or attempts at unauthorized access have been recorded.

  • An innovative approach

    Problem

    A logistics corporation contacted SKP Global Intelligence to perform a Risk Assessment study on one of their largest department stores.

    Performed activities

    In addition to an on-site supervision activity aimed at drafting a Vulnerability Risk Assessment report that involved the modification and implementation of security procedures and practices, an innovative remote access control system was installed at our Operations Center in Milan based on sensors located below the floor and wireless vibration sensors.

    The administrative council of a municipality on the outskirts of Milan commissioned SKP Global Intelligence to build an integrated security camera system aimed in particular at monitoring vehicle traffic entering and leaving the village.

    Performed activities

    A surveillance infrastructure coverage device was put in place by adding new cameras to the existing system and using state-of-the-art remote equipment at the local Operations Center in order to monitor the number plate of each vehicle going through the village.

    Result

    A gang of burglars was found and arrested in collaboration with local law enforcement agencies also thanks to the photographs captured by SKP Global Intelligence's monitoring system.

  • Training

    TEAMWORK

    TEAMWORK

    Problem

    The Security Department of a well-known multinational company operating in the automotive sector called for an improvement in the operational standards of security guards to protect the interests of corporate personalities.

    Performed activities

    A theoretical and practical training course was held on the techniques of containment of the main threats, combining elements of safety guidance and dynamic shooting as well as advanced techniques of defence and deterrence, elements of counter-surveillance and adaptation to new environments and critical situations as well as negotiation in emergencies. Team-building sessions were also held.

    Result

    The activity contributed to not only create a new operational awareness in the staff but also bolstered their motivation and sense of team spirit and of belonging to their company.

  • EXPERIENTIA DOCET (Experience teaches)

    Problem

    A well-known Italian company operating in the Oil & Gas sector requested an analysis of reports sent periodically by its area security managers to the parent company.

    Performed activities

    Examination of report material highlighted several critical points, mainly relating to the choice of news shared with the parent company. They were often local news, not much in line with corporate interests. Scarcity of qualified local sources was also a critical point. We therefore proceeded with a thorough in-house training of the company management who would later be sent abroad and taught them a common method focusing on the principle of oriented information. Our teaching was based on more than twenty years of experience in the field of intelligence.

    Result

    We were able to create an entirely new information and forecast system, something the company had never had in over 40 years of activity in critical scenarios.

  • HEAT TRAINING

    Problem

    A prominent business group belonging to an international network active in architectural design and civil engineering requested the help of SKP Global Intelligence to provide specific training for personnel to be sent to some sites in high-risk locations in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) area.

    Performed activities

    The SKP Global Intelligence Training Department drew up a 3-day HEAT-PROACTIVE SECURITY AWARENESS course program, to be administered over a two-month period directly at the client's sites, with the aim of showing (among other things):

    • the socio-anthropological make-up of the areas where staff will be sent to work;
    • negotiation techniques in hostile areas;
    • active and passive counter-shadowing and counter-surveillance measures;
    • fundamental analysis of body language;
    • elements of emergency psychology and correct pressure management;
    • practices for the safe management of information flows;
    • Tactical Emergencies Casualties Care (TECC);
    • Useful indications and best practices when travelling.

    Result

    Activities are still ongoing.

  • Insurance Frauds

    EFFECTIVE ORGANIZATION

  • Insurance Frauds

    Imaginary Patients

    Imaginary Patients

    Problem

    A leading corporation operating in large-scale retail commissioned SKP Global Intelligence to carry out a series of investigative activities aimed at identifying possible frauds against the national health system by apparently sick employees.

    Result

    The measures subsequently implemented by our client against unfaithful employees allowed savings in terms of gross salary and pension contributions of the order of several hundreds of thousands of euros.
