Graham Cook
Operations Manager
A2 Global Risk

I am a Senior Operations Manager with A2 Global Risk, a Security Risk Management company that provides Security Consultancy, support, and advice along with Geo-political Risk Information to companies around the world. I have worked for a number of large international corporations in security risk management functions for the majority of my career.

I very rarely have two days the same as each of my clients has differing requirements. Current issues include advising clients and prospects on subjects such as:

  • Insider threat (following extended periods of remote working)
  • Travel Risk Management
  • Due diligence investigations for Merger & Acquisition activity
  • New Market Entry reports
  • Security Audits
  • Investigations & investigation management
  • Journey management support
  • Crisis Management Planning & Support


  • An incredibly varied career that is both rewarding and challenging
  • I enjoy finding answers to problems and l attempt to tailor solutions that will work for the intended audience


  • Security is often an afterthought and is applied after an event
  • Security is an expense to business & has to justified
  • Traditionally seen as a follow up career for those leaving the Armed Forces or Law Enforcement – so difficult (though not impossible) to enter as a school/college leaver
