Deloitte has launched a new drone offering with a focus on clients in the government, healthcare, energy and insurance sectors.
The firm, headquartered in London, is hoping the offering will help clients stand-up or advance drone capabilities with an emphasis on business operations, data analytics, risk management and governance.
Managing director of Deloitte Consulting LLP, Peter Liu, said: “The application of drones is almost limitless across numerous industries. With so much potential, however, comes a lot of risk and we are not only helping clients figure out the best way to use drones but deploy them in a way that meets their business objective, adheres to government regulations and gets them the data they need to make the right decisions.”
As part of the Unmanned Security Expo in New York, Deloitte also released the ‘Assessing the Risks of Drones and Unmanned Aerial Systems’ report which focuses on the risks that drones can present and outlines a number of risk scenarios and a framework for addressing those risks.
Chris Hewlett, specialist leader at Deloitte, said: “As companies or government entities look to manage their drone risk, we’ve outlined key steps that they can take to proactively address that increasing risk.”
He added: “Some of the biggest risks to organisations are from unintended consequences, which could seem unpredictable and difficult to prepare for, but through risk assessment, crisis management and modelling, organisations can mitigate that risk.”
