LEADERSHIPCRITON GROUP was founded by Sebastian Bausch and Simon Klingert to build upon their experience in journalism and the risk consulting industry.

We believe leading people to success means leading from the front. Wherever you go – we will blaze the trail.
ANALYSTSWhen it comes to risk consulting, failure is not an option. The safety and success of our clients always comes first. This principle is what motivates our team of dedicated analysts – they want you to overcome risks and succeed. CRITON GROUP analysts have diverse academic and professional backgrounds. Our staff include trained political scientists as well as employees with business or engineering degrees. What they share is their strong dedication to make you safer, every day.
TEAMOur most valuable resource are the knowledge and analytic skills of the people who work for us. We want our clients to embrace risks – and we demand the same from our employees. This is why we place a premium on employing professionals who have real-world experience in high-risk environments. Their expertise, combined with the academic rigour of our risk analysis is what makes us a strong and reliable partner.
NETWORKAt the core of our intelligence-gathering operations is a dedicated network of native individuals scattered throughout the greater Asia region. We don’t just compile open-source news for our reports – we have our own on-the-ground sources that offer their knowledge exclusively to us. These sources scour social media networks that are popular with locals for relevant information. These insights are what sets us apart from our competitors.
