However, in today's world, those with sensitive information need to protect themselves. To provide the ultimate level of protection, you need encrypted communications.

Using only one Executive Protection Agent cannot stop any semi-organized attack on a CEO or celebrity

July 29th, 2019|

When it comes to celebrities,  you often see only one bodyguard with them, if one at all. We believe that using only one agent cannot stop even a semi-organized attack on a CEO or celebrity, so hiring just one bodyguard is an escort, not a protection detail. This is important no matter where you go, whether it's a local restaurant or a foreign country.  Often times, our clients will contact us, asking for just one security driver. It's important that we tell prospective clients that one bodyguard cannot stop any unorganized attack. If two or even three people are attacking [...]
