Jim Rosenbluth is the founder of Analytic Risk Solutions LLC, a security and business continuity consultancy specializing in the identification and mitigation of physical risk to commercial real estate assets and critical infrastructure. An international security, business continuity and crisis management expert with nearly 40 years of experience in the public and private sectors, Jim brings unique perspective and expertise to the effective management of risk to high-value assets.
Recognizing the needs of critical infrastructure and commercial real estate owners and operators for all-hazard risk assessment and risk mitigation options tailored to specific assets, Jim established Analytic Risk Solutions LLC in 2014. Analytic Risk identifies and
characterizes natural hazard and human-factors risks to enable owners and operators to mitigate those that are unacceptable and to respond rapidly and effectively to a broad range of emergency scenarios. Analytic Risk’s services include the preparation of all-hazards risk and terrorism threat assessments for single assets, portfolios and campuses, development of mission-critical facility site selection criteria, performance of facilities security and site suitability assessments and the development of targeted risk mitigation programs, among other services.
From 2005 through 2013, Jim served as the head of business continuity, security and crisis management for Cushman & Wakefield, a global commercial real estate services firm operating in over 60 countries. He established security and business continuity standards for C&W’s 250 offices to ensure their operational availability throughout all conceivable risk scenarios, provided guidance to C&W’s property and portfolio managers worldwide in the development of emergency preparedness and response programs for some of the world’s most iconic properties and worked with many of C&W’s clients to identify and mitigate risks to their assets. He also coordinated C&W’s corporate response to large-scale disasters including Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, the 2009 H1N1 pandemic and the 2011 Tohōku earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Jim left C&W in 2013 to establish Analytic Risk Solutions which he operated until January 2016 when he was asked to return to C&W in the capacity of Director of Global Security and Resilience following the firm’s merger with DTZ. He continued in that capacity until March 2018.
Prior to joining Cushman & Wakefield, Jim served as a Senior Operations Officer and Program Manager in the Directorate of Operations of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He joined the CIA in 1978 and served in a variety of covert operational capacities overseas and domestically, and at the Agency’s Langley, Virginia, Headquarters, through his retirement in 2005. Assignments included counterterrorism prior to and immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington as well as traditional human intelligence and paramilitary operations.
Jim is Co-Chairman Emeritus of the Real Estate Roundtable Homeland Security Task Force, which administers the Real Estate Information Sharing Advisory Council (RE-ISAC) for the Commercial Facilities critical infrastructure sector. With current TS/SCI security clearances, he also serves as intelligence liaison for threat and warning information between the US Intelligence Community and the Commercial Facilities sector.
He was a SME on a 2013 study of intelligence sharing between the US Government and the private sector by the National Infrastructure Advisory Council, a White House panel that evaluates the efficacy of US government efforts to protect critical infrastructure post-9/11. He also is a member of the Advisory Council of Business Executives for National Security (BENS), a non-partisan body of senior business executives that provides private sector expertise to address complex management and operational issues pro bono to the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community and Department of Homeland Security.
