We thank Mr. Christophe SAMYN, director of OPSMAN Consulting (www.opsman.eu), for his intervention with our students.

The module offered by this international expert in security and risk management aroused keen interest and enabled our students to identify the complexity of the parameters to be taken into account in risk assessment, the implementation of security concepts and procedures, taking into account the type of event, the protocol, but also the importance of an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to security.

An unparalleled opportunity for our students when we know that OPSMAN Consulting is in charge of risk management for the safety of those present within the framework of institutional events organized in particular by NATO, the Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Belgium or the European Commission.

  • During the dinner of the Heads of State and Government, organized within the framework of the NATO Summit 2018, OPSMAN Consulting was in charge of the definition of a food security plan and a protocol for managing access to areas of the event.
  • As part of the European Development Days for which OPSMAN Consulting has been active since 2012 in the overall management of risks for the security of the event itself ... the analytical, methodical and meticulous approach to risk management.
  • During the commemoration ceremonies for the 75th Anniversary¬†of the Battle of the Bulge, in December 2019, OPSMAN Consulting was mandated by the organizer to develop and manage an effective and dynamic access management plan, including badging and identification cars ; and this for all categories of people present and / or invited.

A precise and methodical approach which leads to a consolidated and validated management plan, needless to say, by the official security services has enabled OPSMAN Consulting to become the benchmark for effective risk management for the security of major events, at institutional and / or state level.
