Perrotta Consulting is creating a new industry of threat mitigation and emergency operation planning to prepare the private and public sector for any form of hazard.
In partnership with the Northeastern University Master’s Program in Homeland Security, Perrotta Consulting began from a Capstone project with 9 graduates and a goal to mitigate future pandemic threats to the U.S. homeland. These individuals collectively have over 50 years of homeland security and public health experience.
While Perrotta Consulting began with a focus on how to detect and mitigate biological threats, the foundations of this company evolved as the COVID-19 pandemic did and therefore substantial research was dedicated to implementing and exceeding the CDC guidelines. This capstone was presented to faculty at Northeastern, one of the only universities to reopen their campus to in person learning this fall.
While pandemic and biological threat mitigation is a cornerstone of homeland security, it has not received the attention it deserves in the last two decades. Therefore, Perrotta Consulting has developed its own solutions and strategy in threat mitigation that are not only applicable to the current pandemic but will also address any future threats and reduce disease transmission overall.
Perrotta Consulting’s business model incorporates Department of Homeland Security (DHS) style vulnerability and risk assessments and the best private sector and corporate level threat mitigation practices. We provide vulnerability assessment of your organization, and an action and operation plan to mitigate future and present disasters and get your organization operating safely and securely for the future.
Our plans and practices accommodate all business small to large and work precisely with our clients’ budgets. We work with business’ existing systems to maximize operational efficiency and offer additional services in partnership with a biodefense technology company.
