Even if a business is not politically active, it is influenced by (and can influence) geopolitical situations.

Despite avoidance, risk mitigation and preparedness, geopolitical risks do become realities that must be faced.

These realities affect both the top and bottom lines.

They can cause loss of stock value, cancellation of sales contracts, massive supply chain interruptions, and even business collapse.

In the case of kinetic geopolitical situations, the dangers lead to the loss of life and property.

We divide geopolitical dangers into two types:

Level 1: Non-/Less-Kinetic (learn more)

Level 2: Kinetic (learn more)

Important Points

  • We use the word “kinetic” in our communications as most people find the word “violent” disturbing to read and hear repeatedly.
  • We work to minimize fear and apprehension, and focus on reality and solutions.
  • Geopolitical dangers may be to the business and the business’s people, supply chain, customers, and any other stakeholders that affect ongoing operations and success.
  • The sources of geopolitical dangers are myriad. They can include both domestic and foreign governments as well as other internal and external actors.
  • We do support strong, service-oriented governments.
  • Weak, collapsed and failed states tend to present more dangers than strong states and service-oriented states, whether through their intentions or inability to perform as they are duty-bound to do.
  • We do not view any service-oriented government type or structure as inherently dangerous or flawed, nor do we seek to impose or drive a particular government type.
  • We only work to help businesses adapt and respond to geopolitical dangers to ensure the business is safe and can succeed.
  • You can view our four primary approaches to danger response.
