What We Do

Helios Global specializes in helping decision-makers navigate today’s rapidly changing world. Differentiating between fact and fiction, and opportunities and risks, is increasingly challenging in a digital age. To overcome challenges and threats - and be ready to seize opportunities - requires objective and insightful analysis of extensive and often conflicting information.

Helios Global improves research and analysis related to global, political, environmental, and human security issues. Organizations everywhere require accurate and useful understanding of security. However, the complexity and sensitivity of this information often means that knowledge of risks and threats is often too shallow, incomplete, and unsuitable for affirmative, cost-effective responses. Our work bridges this gap.

We offer the following services for government agencies, corporations, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations:

• Research and Analysis
• Assessments
• Training and Education
• Exercise and Gaming
Consulting

Services for Academics, Researchers, and Specialists

Assesments
Systematic evaluations:

  • Analytical Red Teaming and Challenge Analysis: A systematic process to challenge groupthink and accepted assumptions to discover weaknesses before mistakes are made.
  • Analytic Needs Assessment: A customized evaluation to identify ways clients can obtain more useful information and analysis on security issues, and make their internal analytic functions more cost-effective. Needs Assessments are often conducted pro bono for NGOs and charitable organizations.
  • Threat, Vulnerability, and Risk Assessments: Evaluation of a client’s risk or vulnerability to particular threats.

Risk management and analysis consulting. We specialize in building the clients’ capacity to set their own priorities and accurately judge risk-reward and cost-benefit trade-offs. Using a rigorous approach, we help clients assess, mitigate, and leverage political and security risks, and we advise them on how to improve their own internal risk analytics.

Research Evaluation
We systematically evaluate academic research to assess its “real world” applicability, and then link appropriate experts to clients who will benefit from their research and analysis.

Capabilities Matching
We systematically evaluate the capabilities of nonacademic experts for applicability to the needs of potential clients, and then we link the experts with those who will benefit from the capabilities they can offer.
