SAKOM operates with a totally client focused, client program priority in mind. Within each sector, our project managers are embedded with client staff, and will have the delivery and support to the client program firmly at the forefront of their operational plan. Within that operational plan, there will be a risk analysis taken on a daily basis; normally based on local feedback and source information, which will be the framework of the security approach for that day. Strategically, the aim is to ensure the client program is delivered on time and SAKOM consider themselves an enabler to the client mission.
We are continuing to provide PSD services to banking sector clients in across Africa, Iraq and Afghanistan. Within such countries, cash in transit provides a significant difficulty and is considered a high-risk strategy for which SAKOM solutions are available. In immediate post-conflict countries which have a requirement for a currency exchange program, SAKOM are capable of providing security to support such transfers. Across Africa, Iraq and Afghanistan, successful currency exchange programs were carried out and monitored by PSC staff and some duties included the delivery of cash to remote sites using protective services. In addition, static man-guarding at bt banking institutions has proven popular.
