Meet Our Team Of Expert Analysts

Laura Cohen- Founder & Risk Management Specialist

Laura Cohen founded Laura Cohen Security Risk Management in 2018, after the company had split away from her previous start-up, where she became best known for her development of efficient and strategic screening expertise. Laura had spent about nine years working on the frontlines of the industry, where she periodically was employed in various capacities as a civilian background investigator with Sensitive Security Clearance. This professional experience taught her both how to conduct a professional grade background check and  how to protect information using state of the art information security procedures.  She also spent many years as a business analyst with a focus on analytics and profit/loss in the travel industry. Her unique background can be highly beneficial in achieving your profit margin while working with the confidence of knowing a skilled professional background investigator is prioritizing minimization of your risk.
