The Rich and Famous Chinese can have enemies outside of China

Did you know? For high net worth Chinese individuals, the threat level is higher outside of China. Those traveling from China to the US don’t typically have knowledge of potential threats happening. They can also end up being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Bad people can always find good people.

No matter who you are or what you do, you can come in contact, and even be conned by someone who seems like a good person. This is especially true if English is your second language and you don’t understand certain nuances.

You’ll know these people as fast talkers. They may wear a Rolex and a nice suit and drive a sports car, but they are not as they seem. They may have done their research on an individual and set […]

Your Executive Protection Insurance Company Can Sue You

You may remember that back in 2016, Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris. She was robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry. What many people fail to remember is that she did have a bodyguard assigned to her when this happened. Kardashian was there with her sister and a friend and only had that one bodyguard.

However, while he should have stayed with her when her sister and the friend went out on the town, he ended up going out with them to protect them instead of the person he was assigned to protect. We’re unsure why this happened, although we can guess that he was just doing as he was told, which is something any good executive protection agent doesn’t do. His actions led to Kardashian being robbed at gunpoint.

Selecting an Executive Protection company is like choosing the best brain surgery doctor

When it comes to executive protection, everyone thinks they are an expert. From clients to those that they are with, we are constantly bombarded with requests that, if taken, would undermine our ability to protect our clients effectively. When it comes to executive protection, think of your expert like you would a brain surgeon.

They know how to protect the client. Trust Them

When it comes to your health, you would never tell a brain surgeon how to operate on you. The same should be true when it comes to your safety. Most client representatives have no training in protection, but still, try to tell us where to go and what to do. Unfortunately, that compromises their safety and could put them in a similar situation they’d be in if we weren’t there altogether.  Make sure […]

Managing threats is a highly complicated process for experienced security professionals only

When you are dealing with security threats or physical threats, you never want to take them on yourself, especially in the workplace. Only experienced security professionals can manage risks effectively to make sure you are safe and protected. When we manage a threat, there are different components of people that make up the threat management team.

A psychologist or psychiatrist that specializes in managing threats

Not all psychiatrists or psychologists are qualified to be on the team. It should only be those who have specialized training in threat management.

Human Resources

When a threat happens on the job, HR will play a huge role in letting us know about that specific person. They will also have input in the management of the threat and what to do within a company to handle this unacceptable behavior the […]

Arnold Schwarzenegger attacked – what went wrong? Were Buddyguards protecting him?

In May of this year, the 71-year-old former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger was attacked in South Africa. Videos have confirmed that he was actually kicked in the back. Schwarzeneggar did have a protective detail, which you can see in the videos. Unfortunately, they made some clear simple mistakes that showed they did not have the correct training to protect such a high-profile individual.

Many people think that just because they are hiring people who label themselves as security and protection experts, that’s who they are really getting.  However, just because someone may have experience with weapons or military training, it doesn’t mean that they are qualified to protect them.

Let’s take a look at what went wrong and lead to Schwarzenegger’s attack.

No Protective Formation

In executive protection, we call it the […]
