Take Risks With Confidence

Anne Searle 2014

Now in our ninth year, Annie Searle & Associates (ASA) has worked with companies or agencies from our nation's critical infrastructure sectors to better manage a range of risks that spring from the four operational risk dimensions of any organization --  people, processes, systems and external events. We've done that through the two divisions of the firm.

The ASA Institute for Risk and Innovation offers the latest high level threat analyses and risk assessments on a wide variety of real world issues in order to drive policy and regulatory changes. We publish at least one new research note monthly in our newsletter, ASA News & Notes, along with a column written by Annie Searle each month that examines risk challenges in the public and private sector. Annie comments daily on the news article of the day via Annie's Take. From the research notes published first in the newsletter has come the Reflections on Risk series of books, with Volume III published in December 2015.

ASA's consulting services drive improvements in an organization's policies, programs and business practices. Our toolset includes executive briefings, risk assessments with roadmaps, executive risk retreats, scenario design and testing.
