Most threats aim to intimidate, harass, and embarrass their targets, however, there are those who escalate to violence. Organizations should be able to conduct business and individuals both inside of their places of business and their homes should be free from such threats.
Using her background in behavioral sciences and law enforcement; Nikki works with organizations and individuals to identify threats, collect data, determine threat level, and mitigate the impact of said threats. These threats have included animal rights and environmental extremists, anti-vaxxers, corporate espionage, stalkers (known and unknown), and employee/internal threats.

Threat Assessment & Incident Response Teams are made up of existing employees from within an organization from different departments with varying backgrounds. These individuals are tasked with responding to reports of threats, violence, harassment, or other incidents or behavior that disrupt daily operations and create a hostile working environment for personnel. Team members should be carefully selected and require training in conflict resolution, threat assessment, and procedures to monitor, document, and develop responses to all impending issues.
