Having served twenty years as a supervisory special agent in the United States Secret Service, my advice is this: If you’re involved in protective security for high net worth families or individuals – as a practitioner, principal, or anywhere else in the estate or family office – you want to read this excellent introduction by the best guys in the industry. This is also a must-read for anyone who wants to transition into the field from government service.
