  • Case study 1 – Oil & gas firm assessing market entry risks

    An oil and gas major has earmarked the construction of a new pipeline in Colombia’s southern Putamayo region. However, investors have raised concerns regarding the feasibility of this project, citing the risk of potential terrorist attacks which may jeopardise worker safety and impede construction. A senior business analyst at the oil and gas major uses the MTSD to analyse terrorism trends in Colombia over the last decade. Making best use of Maplecroft’s market-leading subnational mapping he can analyse and assess the trajectory of terrorist activity against energy infrastructure down to 100m. Mining the data, he finds that attacks on energy infrastructure occur nationwide, but are four times more likely to occur in Arauca and Norte de Santander than in Putumayo region. Armed with this intelligence, the business analyst assembles a body of evidence that can be used to ensure his company retains investor support for this ambitious project.

  • Case study 2 – Security manager at a global tourism company

    A security manager at a global tourism operator is drafting an annual report to the board reviewing the security of its flagship hotel in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. Having noted a rising number of media reports focused on terrorist incidents in the Sinai Peninsular, the security manager interrogates the MTSD to find the number of attacks to occur in the last year in Egypt. Analysing the data, he notes that the majority of terrorism incidents occur in North Sinai, not the southern tip of the peninsula where the company’s hotel is located. The analytics also reveal that the primary targets are government personnel, who make up 95% of the victims and infrastructure targets, not holiday makers and tourist operators. The security manager utilises this trend analysis to inform the board that the likely risk of attack on the hotel is low, but security measures should be maintained due to proximity to a high risk region.

  • Case study 3 – Insurance underwriter pricing policy

    An underwriter at a leading insurance firm is asked to calculate a travel insurance policy for a group of European engineers who are due to travel to Nigeria to conduct repairs to a client’s oil rig in the Niger Delta. The underwriter heard about the April 2014, Boko Haram kidnapping of the Chibok schoolgirls, but she needs a more granular level of intelligence on the risk of kidnap and ransom to Western personnel in Nigeria. Using the Maplecroft Terrorism and Security Dashboard, she accesses data on the frequency and locations of expatriate kidnappings in southern Nigeria over the last two years. Her first search, centred upon Lagos where the engineers are due to land, shows no previous incidents. However, when she refines her search parameters to look at kidnapping trends in the Niger Delta, the MTSD flags up eight kidnapping incidents of oil workers over the last two years. This intelligence enables her to adjust the premium to the appropriate level.
