Unfortunately celebrities around the globe also face an ever increasing burden of intrusion and disturbance from the paparazzi,
the media in general, potential kidnappers, stalkers, robbers and threats that normally come from some form of envy.
With terrorists, separatists, fundamentalists, and criminals trying to capitalize on the advancement of growing “third world” nations as
they struggle to achieve economic development through investment, VIPs and celebrity protection operations have now become a necessity.
We realize that wherever you are, there will be a media presence.
We also fully realize that media presence can be just as challenging to monitor, if not more so than crowd control.
Our personnel are fully trained to cope with the media presence in both crowds and traffic situations while maintaining celebrity security.
Our staff are capable of running any other duties whilst on task such as transportation, family and media liaison to allow the celebrity to focus on what they do best!
Executive Protection (EP) is a security specialty focused on safeguarding the life, health, time, reputation, and peace of mind of corporate executives and others who face elevated risk.
Executive protection (EP)—the task of keeping key personnel safe from intentional and unintentional harm—is a widespread, recognized specialty in the security field. Its purpose is to safe-guard people who face an above-average level of risk or whose security is especially important to an organization.
In today’s complex threat environment, the challenges to executive protection professionals—and to their principals—have never been greater.
And so, there are also a different type of executive protection.
Overt refers to operators who anyone can see are on-duty as security personnel. The most common version of this is uniformed campus security officers (though operators in dark suits and ties also fall into this category). Everyone knows who they are and what they’re doing.
Low-profile operators are usually plain-clothed individuals (or ones dressed like the people around them) who try not to draw any attention or make it too obvious that they’re providing protection. Most untrained people will probably not notice who they are and what they’re doing but trained and/or experienced and/or observant individuals might. Strictly speaking, low-profile isn’t an attempt to hide security, just to make it less conspicuous and attention-grabbing.
Covert means that nobody is supposed to know that there’s an operator there. It’s not a question of hiding or camouflaging but of blending in and making it appear like the operator is not engaged in a protection or intelligence operation.
Our colleague Ami Toben could not have explained better than he did in his book
Whenever I get a request for a covert operation, I start by asking the client about their concerns and goals. Quite often, once the picture becomes clearer, it turns out that an overt or low-profile situation can serve their needs much better than a covert one.
Some clients ask for a covert operation simply because they think it gives them a higher level of protection. I’ve often had to explain that the covertness factor can be an important tool, but that it isn’t necessarily the right kind of tool for every job. This is most apparent when the job in question is preventive physical security.
It’s true that in most cases, the covert operator is more skilled than a conventional one, but the covertness factor isn’t always the best way to achieve your protective goals. It can, in fact, make things much trickier, not to mention more time consuming and expensive.
Covertness is a tool, not a goal.
Many people fall in love with the idea of a covert operation without first considering if it’s the best tool for the job.
The tool needs to serve the goal, not the other way around.
We don’t need to add anything to this…
