Anonymous Phone When Traveling

Should I have an anonymous phone when traveling to a foreign country?

When high-net-worth individuals travel to a foreign country, it’s important that they take the proper precautions to ensure their safety and privacy. An anonymous phone is ideal because it allows you to communicate with the outside world while being completely anonymous. Nothing regarding this phone is connected to you, which means that those with bad intentions cannot hack into your communications to find out where you are and where you’re going or steal valuable information.

Your Cell Phone

Your cell phone is a tracking device, and anyone, even those with limited skills, can find you. Your phone broadcasts your location and communications, which is useful when you need directions on Google Maps or emergency services need to find your location. However, as a celebrity or high net worth […]

Drones in Private Security Role

How Can Drones Be Used In The Private Security Role?

Drones are fast becoming a fun toy for both children and adults. However, what many people don’t realize is that drones are used every day by law enforcement and executive protection agents to keep people safe. WPG is currently the only executive protection firm using drones to better protect its clients from those who may wish to harm.

Here’s how.

Chasing Suspects

Police departments use drones to chase suspects because drones can fly above obstacles and reach the suspect much sooner. While a drone can’t make an arrest, it can follow a suspect so that the police can catch them much more effectively.

This is true for executive protection, as well. Consider an intruder outside of your home. The drone could follow them to make sure the police can catch them.

Drones in Risk Vulnerability Assessment

Drones in Risk Vulnerability Assessment

As you may know, drones are used in many ways to help people. They are used after natural disasters to find survivors and aid rescue, by police forces, and the military. Executive protection agents can also use drones for something we call a Risk Vulnerability Assessment.

First, let’s discuss drones.

World Protection Group (WPG) and Drones

We are the only executive protection company that uses drones to keep clients safe. Not only that, but we also use drones to support police, fire, and emergency services, including FEMA. Let’s face it, high net worth individuals often have large estate properties that require extensive personnel.

100% Prevention: The Key to Executive Protection

Executive Protection Training is Different from Police or Military Academies

Police and military academies have a focus on combat, investigation, and weapons training. While all of these are great skills to have for those interested in executive protection, they are missing one key value. This key value is prevention. Preventing situations means that there’s no need for police intervention because the problem has already been taken care of.

Formal Executive Protection Training

Over the course of their career, a seasoned executive protection agent will accumulate 600-1000 hours of formal training. This training will have a large focus on protective intelligence and prevention. Protective intelligence means gathering all of the information they need in order to create a plan that prevents problems from occurring in the first place.

Prevention is proactive instead of reactive. Rather than waiting for a dangerous situation to […]
