Risk Control Strategies (RCS) is a premier consulting, investigation and crisis management firm specializing in threat management, risk assessments and security solutions for the affluent community and major corporations. Our business philosophy is based upon the belief that it is our responsibility to provide clients a thorough and high quality work product with timely delivery. The foundation of RCS is built on the company motto "Servare Vitas", the Latin phrase meaning “to save lives.” This extends far beyond the traditional meaning and speaks to creating the framework for peace of mind by protecting human, financial and physical assets. By design, RCS is not for everyone, but more for the learned end user. This is evidenced by a methodology that draws upon its extensive experience in directing clients down the path that is in their true best interest in lieu of mechanically agreeing with initial wishes that will not lead to their desired results. The ultimate goal is to resolve the situation while ensuring the client moves forward productively and not in a manner that could ultimately cause them financial, personal or professional harm. Thus, RCS has gained its reputation for identifying and developing strategic solutions. The firm‟s distinguishing characteristic is the expertise of their personnel which is based upon a combination of hands-on industry experience, educational knowledge and most importantly, wisdom garnered from decades of dedication to our nation‟s well being. RCS fuses this proven expertise through the effectual utilization of a team of renowned former federal and state law enforcement professionals, representing each industry related discipline. This, in concert with its preeminent technological inventory and service delivery, provides clients with a true world class firm. RCS prides itself on understanding and meeting client‟s expectations by being a knowledgeable service provider that will participate with clients in creating individually tailored solutions.
Because every client’s situation is unique, each plan is customized and structured to suit individual needs.

AFFLUENT CLIENT SERVICES From the genesis of our firm, Risk Control Strategies was designed to serve the affluent community, in the most holistic manner possible, for all of its security needs. Drawing upon decades of experience in mitigating risk and responding to crisis related events for the affluent, the RCS Founders constructed a team of professionals with the expertise to address every potential concern at the highest level. However, it is the RCS methodology that continues to provide peace of mind to families across the globe. That is, isolate the risk, create the resolution plan using all means necessary, and deploy the required solution professionally and expeditiously. Confidentiality, discretion, diplomacy and precise decision making compose the fabric of protection we enfold our clients with throughout the duration of our relationship. Clearly, there is no „cookie cutter‟ approach to serving as a security advisor which is why our three-phase approach allows us to efficiently identify the areas of vulnerability, implement procedures to eliminate, reduce, and harden those vulnerabilities, and provide ongoing service and support to our clients and their families. Phase One Personal Risk Diagnostic Upon providing the client with a written non-disclosure agreement assuring them complete confidentiality, our objective is to obtain as much information as possible surrounding the subject‟s personal and family lifestyle so as to ascertain the current and potential level of risk. Phase Two Analytical Review and Implementation Building upon information obtained in phase one, we will begin the initial steps of designing and implementing a lifestyle specific security plan for the client. Phase Three Education and Response This is the maintenance phase where ongoing reviews and assessments will be provided to address the client‟s changing needs. Personalized training seminars for family members and staff will be conducted to ensure optimum protection levels are in place and implemented plans are being practiced efficiently. From individual clients and emerging families to multi-generational legacies and single/multiple family offices, RCS has cemented a strategy that expeditiously delivers risk resolution and develops client trust in a discreet and personal manner so as to construct a long term advisory relationship. Our client‟s peace of mind is the yardstick from which we measure our deliverable.
We are a leading resource for diversified security solutions providing our clients with a holistic project approach with timely deliverables. Our cadre of professionals provides undivided attention to each and every client.
