Our vision

Strategic reflection, anticipation and innovation

Prosegur Research is a space for analyzing and reflecting on the present and future of security. We want to share our experiences, produce knowledge supported by our in-house and external experts and contribute to the dissemination of the safety culture.

Our purpose


An exponential acceleration

Fernando Abós,
Prosegur Security Global Director

The complexity and uncertainty of our current world creates new challenges and opportunities for the security of states, companies and citizens.

The need to observe

Carmen Jordá,
Intelligence and Foresight Project Manager

The environment continuously emits signals that, detected in time, become early warnings that reduce risks, facilitating intelligent decision-making.

Vision of the future

José María Blanco,
Intelligence and Foresight Managing Director

Vision of the future and prospective does not imply predicting or guessing, but rather inducing thought and reflection about the future in order to influence it.

Our Values


Objectivity and independence

Given our genuine interest in understanding the reality that surrounds us so we can adapt to its changes and anticipate its evolution, we use rigorous methodological approaches.
 

Creativity

Enabling the conception of new ideas so the disruptive challenges experienced by society can be met with an innovative response.

Critical thinking

It allows us to understand the past, analyze the present and provide a vision of the future from a double-sided metacognitive process while minimizing bias that may affect our Research.

These values, objectivity, independence, creativity and critical thinking broaden our analytical capability. In addition, we are bolstered by the contribution of internal researchers and analysts who provide their expertise as security professionals as well as external partners that reinforce our potential as observers by nurturing our project with diverse perspectives from academic and institutions specialized in strategic studies, technology, industry and sustainability. Experts join this list as they collaborate with Prosegur Research.
