About Us

Rubicon Resilience

Rubicon Resilience is a London based international consultancy that builds strategic capability in the private and public sector. We develop crisis management expertise, improve the response to major incidents and leave a legacy of organisational learning.

Terrorism is pervasive and connected internationally on a scale not experienced before. Equally the internal threat means insiders have opportunity to cause harm, whether intentionally or through poor procedures.

Rubicon Resilience draws on extensive U.K. and international experience in crisis management. We deliver exceptional understanding and knowledge of the authorities’ response to major incidents, contingency planning and media handling. We develop an integrated approach from the executive level to operational delivery with an emphasis on interoperability and effective partnerships. We use a network of consultants with global expertise in contracts tailored to our clients’ requirements.
