A leading UK security firm celebrating its 10th year operating in India has been hailed at a special reception hosted by the British High Commission.
London-based Control Risks specialises in internal investigations, operational crises and cyber-security. The company also provides guidance and assistance to British companies entering India for the first time.
To celebrate the company’s achievements in India, a reception was hosted last night at the High Commissioner’s residence in New Delhi.
Speaking at the event, British High Commissioner to India Sir Dominic Asquith KCMG, said: “I’m delighted to be hosting this reception to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Control Risks in India.
“Control Risks is a leading global risk consultancy provider and I’m very pleased to be able to work with them here where they serve as an excellent example of the UK’s expertise in compliance, security and strategic risk management.”
The UK firm said its aim was to continue to support its clients in India by providing strategic consultancy, expert analysis and in-depth understanding of the market, handling sensitive political issues and providing practical on-ground response and support.
James Owen, senior partner and head of Control Risks in India and South Asia, added: “The essence of Control Risks is its unique combination of diverse expertise, so when you engage with Control Risks in India, you are able to tap into a global company that brings multiple perspectives and deep on the ground experience and expertise.”
