No matter how much forward thinking a company does, we
are all sometimes surprised by a sudden turn of events.
It may be a competitor making a surprise move, civil unrest
that balloons into a sweeping socio-political upheaval,
or something as simple as a key employee getting in a car
Keeping track of key employees
Knowing exactly where key employees are is a cornerstone
of ensuring their security. Whether in proactive planning or
in solving emergency situations, the principal’s location is a
critical starting point for all EP activities.
Setting up, training and maintaining a covert EP and surveillance detection program to provide top-notch security
We regularly work with high net worth individuals, families
and their offi ces. In many ways, the EP and security needs of
these prominent families are similar to those of corporations.
After all, these high net worth individuals are often founders
of highly successful companies, and in that sense share
many characteristics with the C-suite principals for whom
we typically provide EP.
Medical evacuation from Northern Yemen
We help clients with emergency evacuations practically every
year, and 2014 was no exception.
EP and Travel Logistics
Ultimately, our goal is to replace the burden of travel with an
experience that keeps our clients safe, productive – and even
happy – when moving from A to B and beyond.
Arranging a trip on the fly to a restricted military airport in India
For our principals, the so-called work/life balance is different
than many people. They work a lot, some would say
constantly. They have a profound sense of purpose and
truly enjoy what they do, so the distinctions between “business
and pleasure” are seldom black and white.
Helping a client stay safe and make good decisions when all hell breaks loose
We provide secure travel logistics for our clients so they
can maintain their productivity and well-being wherever
their interests take them. While our managers and
agents always train and prepare for the worst, in normal
circumstances good planning and procedures allow us
to provide our principals with seamless transportation and
security that they hardly notice as they move about their
Quantum leap in intelligence analysis capacity within three months
Our executive protection services depend on up-to-date
information to stay abreast of emerging risks to our principals
wherever they might travel. So it’s no wonder we rely
on many sources – including our broad network of on the ground
eyes, ears and minds – to predict, prevent and mitigate
threats to our principals. Indeed, our most comprehensive
EP programs have dedicated intelligence analysts
as part of the team.
Opening a new subsidiary in the most dangerous city in the world
As an international executive protection company, we go
where our clients need to go – and do what it takes to
keep them safe, happy and productive. We normally work
on either a project basis or through embedded programs
in which we place executive protection agents/managers
and intelligence analysts within the client organization.
But sometimes the client’s needs are so wide-ranging that
other solutions are required.
Corporate investigation uncovers tricky workplace theft
Unfortunately, corporations sometimes have to deal with
situations that border on the criminal or even clearly break
the law. Embezzlement, internal theft, kickbacks, industrial
espionage and IPR violations are just some of the issues.
Responsive security deflates the risk of workplace violence
Workplace violence is often misunderstood. Despite the
“going postal” myth, postal workers are less likely to be
victims of crime than many other labor groups. Homicides
and violent attacks are highly publicized but rare; other
types of violence and disruption, however, are far more
widespread and a drain on employee well-being and productivity.
These includes threats, harassment, confrontations
and other incidents that rarely make the news.
Joining forces with a huge volunteer safety force to keep Northern Europe’s biggest rock festival safe
Every summer, more than 135,000 people meet up at the
Roskilde Festival, just west of Copenhagen, to hear an
eclectic mix of the world’s top rock acts, world music and
Scandinavian indie bands. The festival is a massive logistics
undertaking. Run as a non-profit, it is only possible due to
the 32,000 volunteers who transform 80 hectares of empty
fields into what becomes Denmark’s fourth-largest city for
a period of eight days.
Improving the operational readiness of covert protection and surveillance detection teams through a tailor made field training exercise
Yes, flawless logistics and carefully planned procedures always
allow the client to maintain top-notch productivity.
But precisely because the protection program works as it
should, and the principal is kept far from potential threats,
the days and weeks can appear uneventful from a security
point of view. This, in turn, can lead to complacency,
one of the most serious problems of any security team.
A productive trip to Morocco – in the middle of a general strike
Smooth travel logistics is one of the key building blocks of
good executive protection. It enables principals to concentrate
on the business rather than on the details of getting
from A to B. It lets executives pack more meetings and
more places into less time. And it always puts productivity
front and center without ever compromising security.
Truly personalized residential security is the only kind that really works
Residential security is important to all of us, so it’s no wonder
that sales of burglar alarms and other home security systems
– both monitored and unmonitored – have boomed in
Unfortunately, many of these systems don’t live up to their
