A security system which brings together up-to-the-minute information on key security developments in Iraq and the implications for companies operating in the region will launch this month.

Restrata's new web-based portal is set to go live and will serve as a platform to provide reporting and longer-term situational risk analysis conducted by its Business Solutions Operation Centre (BSOC) in Basrah.

Restrata is co-located with the Basrah Operations Command (BaOC), the main headquarters of the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), and provides a liaison between ISF and International Oil Companies (IOCs) and private business.

Promoting freedom of movement, emergency liaison and information & analysis through bespoke and regular reporting, the online portal will offer comprehensive current situation assessment and analysis, as well as an archive of historic material.

Information provided by BSOC allows organisations to plan and implement safe journey management with real time situational awareness. Through liaison with the 24/7 Control Centre companies can gain assistance in dealing with any difficulties that may occur and responding to incidents. Through the BSOC, the Iraqi Security Forces can be called upon to support subscribers in emergency situations.

Botan Osman, Managing Director at Restrata, said: “It is critical that organisations planning on conducting commercial operations are able to fully assess the situation in Iraq. The BSOC has a unique relationship at the heart of command in the region and has a strong and effective working relationship with the authorities in Iraq. This provides the most complete service available for those looking to minimise the risks to personnel and equipment.

“Operating conditions can change very quickly and the best way to stay informed is by using a service that continuously monitors the situation in the country in real-time.”

The BSOC Insight subscription includes up to eight regular reports as well as real-time information feeds. The South-East daily focusses on incidents and issues around the Basrah province of Iraq and the current security picture. Basrah and Iraq weekly reports review recent incidents and their effect on the medium-term security situation. Basrah and Iraq monthly reports combine all incidents in the respective areas over the past month to give a significant insight into the current situation and analysis on possible outcomes, ideal for planning for corporate risk management.

Headquartered in the UAE, Restrata provides a range of safety and security services to establish the necessary security and crisis management arrangements to build resilience within organisations, including consultancy, situational awareness and tracking, training and workforce development, response services in crisis and continuity management, fire and rescue services, safe journey management, and HSE management.
