Profile

Mike O'Neill

Description

Mike O’Neill doesn’t see Optimal Risk as a security firm, but rather a ‘risk management’ company that helps clients looking for ‘discreet advice’ and support mitigating the risks of their lifestyle. Within the usual security offering there are also reviews of clients’ lifestyles, travel itinerary reviews, advice on social media use and security briefings to each member of the HNW family. ‘The amount of information now available via open source and social media can cause problems,’ he explains. ‘This might be unwelcome attention, or even targeted action against HNW families. It’s important to understand the “virtual footprint” that a family has, and what measures can be taken to minimise the risks.’
