Intelligence is the core of any business and Aeroshield’s greatest strength. Too often is information misinterpreted as intelligence. Intelligence is the understanding of how to plan, monitor,
and measure the use of information that is collected through research, investigations, inspection, test, and verifications. If you are happy with your current investigation or security protocol,
then simply use Aeroshield to help improve efficiencies with a higher level of intel.

way to fully investigate sensitive matters.
Our experienced staff can help you develop a comprehensive strategy to resolve all your foreign matters.
Cross-Border Mexico Investigations
As U.S. and global organizations expand commerce and trade with Mexico, they increase their risk of exposure to cross-border fraud, corruption, misconduct, and illegal trafficking. The impact of these risks
can lead to substantial lost revenue and property, damage to the organization’s reputation and investor confidence, and substantial government fines and enforcement actions.
Given the enormous variance in, and even conflict between national and local laws that drive investigations in a global environment, conducting such complex investigative inquiries presents serious obstacles for
the multinational organization.
Cross-border international investigations must be prompt, confidential and well-organized. Achieving professional results is particularly challenging for a global organization, where the necessary information
may be lodged in widely-varying records, documents, and data bases utilizing different languages. Witnesses may be scattered across multiple international jurisdictions, and driven by vastly different
cultural norms, values, and expectations.
Aeroshield utilizes only experienced, culturally sensitive bi-lingual and/or dual-citizen international investigators from the United States. This eliminates the necessity of depending on local resources, thereby
mitigating exposure to corruption and other factors which can compromise the integrity of an investigation. Whether an organization has facilities in border cities such as Ciudad Juarez, Tijuana and Nuevo
Laredo, or simply imports product from Mexico via truck transport, Aeroshield can help mitigate the risks.
Successful litigation depends on building a case file of critical information that often requires tedious, in-depth investigations. Our legal support team, many of whom have law degrees themselves,
understands the needs of legal counsel. We provide a wide range of reliable, confidential legal support services including locating material witnesses, obtaining witness statements, investigating adverse
witnesses, and pre and post-judgment asset tracing. Our investigators are schooled in litigation support techniques, and are also trained to provide credible, expert testimony when called before the court.
We assist law firms, in-house counsel, arbitrators, and mediators in the development and collection of supporting evidence through investigation, public records research and retrieval, surveillance, analysis of
evidence, photography/diagramming, and witness interviews. Our analysis of evidence includes but is not limited to forensic accounting service, forensic science laboratory services, and forensic computer

Aeroshield requires that every investigative act be performed legally and with the highest of ethics. Our investigators are trained to be vigilant concerning the following key factors: expectation of privacy,

Physical Penetration Testing
Organizations typically prioritize network security, and spend large amounts of capital verifying their external network presence is secure. Companies spend millions on the best firewalls, intrusion
prevention systems, and software that scans messages for viruses. While network security controls are important, if an attacker can walk into a building and steal sensitive data from an unlocked
terminal, or worse yet, lift your hardware right out the door- then these controls are essentially ineffective.
The primary objective for a physical penetration test is to measure the strength of existing physical security controls and uncover their weaknesses before attackers are able to discover and exploit them.
Physical penetration testing will uncover real-world opportunities for malicious insiders or outside threats to be able to compromise physical barriers (ie: locks, sensors, cameras) in a way that
allows for unauthorized physical access to sensitive areas leading to data breaches and system/network compromise.
Penetration Tests may include lock picking doors, hopping fences, piggy backing, bypassing physical access controls, or social engineering. It is a non-invasive, comprehensive assessment of physical
security controls in place at a facility or location. Depending on client objectives we may employ various physical penetration testing techniques:
- Covert surveillance reconnaissance and active drone reconnaissance
- Attempting to gain access to critical infrastructure or executive area in a control center and/or data center
- Attempting to gain access to satellite facilities/branches
Physical Security breaches can have the same impact as computer network breaches. As a result, Physical Security Attack & Penetration Tests should be conducted on high value and sensitive facilities
and locations annually.

The key to effectively protecting and growing returns for an organization's shareholders is to identify and manage the risks that could prevent the achievement of business objectives. Proactively

processes to ensure they are effective.
These are just some of the key deliverables from Aeroshield's security consulting:
- Conduct comprehensive assessment on the organization and recommend processes and programs to mitigate risks based on industry standards and best practices.

human resources, physical security, workplace procedures and crisis management plans.
Some of our most frequently requested security consulting services include:
Security Vulnerability Assessments
A Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA) will essentially provide your company with a roadmap to implement a successful security program. The assessment is based on the interrelationship of three key
factors: personnel, procedural and physical security measures.
An SVA is ideal for organizations with decentralized, fragmented or multi-site security infrastructure. This report defines the structure of risk control, including a definition of recommended strategies,
tactics and processes to safeguard the organization.
Security Infrastructure Assessments
In most organizations, risk management and internal control activities are numerous and fragmented. This lack of alignment and coordination can result in overlaps or gaps in risk mitigation coverage. Through
our security infrastructure assessment, Aeroshield can help companies identify and understand the misalignments, challenges, and improvement opportunities in their risk and security frameworks. We
conduct gap analysis using industry standards and best practices as the foundation to provide a clear definition of focus areas and efforts that help management drive incremental improvements that
mitigate risk and enhance overall performance.
This service is ideal for organizations with existing programs in place that require validation of current processes. It also applies to companies that require integration as a result of a merger. This process
establishes any leaks through a gap analysis and recommends solutions for greater efficiency based on industry standards, compliance drivers and best practices.
Facility Assessments and Audits
Each facility has unique risks based on the nature of the business being conducted and its location. Understanding your facility's exposure is the first step in mitigating loss. A facility risk assessment
evaluates existing security and safety measures and identifies security hazards, threats and vulnerabilities. Observations are presented to explain relevance, and countermeasures are suggested for the
protection of business processes, employees, visitors, company assets and the general public.
This service is ideal for organizations looking to identify physical security vulnerabilities at its facilities, whether at a new or existing location. It also applies to a company that needs to audit a facility and
compare against existing standards or a company who needs an assessment of the facility to determine the risks in order to create new standards. An Aeroshield consultant will create the actual standards.
International Project Security Planning
Aeroshield can undertake a complete review of the security measures required to manage international projects. This includes local risk assessment, expatriate residential security plans, local security
staff training and coordination and comprehensive site security plans.

Aeroshield can manage all aspects of security for international projects. This includes liaison with government agencies and local stakeholders, oversight of local security staff and executive protection
teams, management of all travel security for key staff and, in the event of a security incident, implementation of contingency plans and assistance where necessary.
