EXECUTIVE PROTECTION


A new wrinkle in the fabric of VIP/Executive Protection emerged recently shifting emphasis from preventative measures to post-incident preparation and contingency planning. This trend towards reactive security has the ability to obscure the primary focus of VIP/Executive Protection in subtle ways. It is important, even critical, to know how to react and train to react properly, but reacting properly is not enough, especially if there are measures available to help avoid danger in the first place. The proper approach to VIP/Executive Protection has been, and always will be, preventative, proactive steps taken to reduce the likelihood of attack.



Our Approach

PROACTIVE SECURITY    THREAT ANALYSIS    PLANNING    EMERGENCY RESPONSE



The objective of any Protective Mission are to prevent unintentional injury to the client (vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, natural disasters), avoid embarrassing situations (unwanted media attention, invasion of private life, intrusion into corporate affairs), and anticipate and avoid intentional attack (criminal threats, hijacking, kidnapping).



Our Services Includes:

  • Threat Analysis
  • Client Circumstances Analysis
  • Protective Formations for Weapons
  • Surveillance Detection
  • Protective Detection
  • Advanced Work - Potential Danger Points
