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

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 an individual, a bodyguard won’t be much help.

At WPG, we recommend a minimum of two agents, because our protection services are all very choreographed for maximum safety and protection. Typically we have […]

Using Drones to get Evidence on a Cheating Spouse

Many husbands and wives hire private investigators to dig up dirt and catch their spouses in the act of cheating. Unfortunately, PI’s can only go so far on foot and gather so much evidence using their cameras and other technology. Drones security, on the other hand, can get quality evidence on a cheating spouse. Consider hiring a Private Investigator that has drones.

How Drones Can Catch a Cheating Spouse

Let’s say a wife, for example, believes her husband is cheating. She would then go to someone with considerable drone experience like World Protection Group’s CEO, Kent Moyer. With all of the possible information she may have, Kent would be able to begin an investigation.

Instead of being on foot to catch a spouse in the act, drones can be used to gather expert evidence […]

Six Security Steps High Net Worth Chinese Clients Should Take When Traveling

Traveling out of China can be dangerous, especially if you’re going to a place you’ve never been before and haven’t gathered the necessary intelligence to ensure your safety. Here are six security steps high net worth Chinese clients should take when traveling outside of China.

1. Research and Do Intelligence

Before going to a foreign country, it’s essential to gather as much open-source intelligence as possible. You need to know the type of threats and crime in that country or city and evaluate whether you need security based on certain threat levels.

2. Stay Anonymous

Your trip should remain as anonymous as possible. One of the best ways to do this is to stay off social media. They say if you’re going out of town to never post about it on social media because that leaves you open to theft or possible […]

It is Not About how Good We Can Fight. It is About Delivering Gold Standard Services

When 001 Kent Moyer decided to create a luxury protection entity, he believed that privacy and confidentiality are a luxury to a billionaire, celebrity, or another high net worth individual. We believe that as much as our clients like being in the limelight, they also deserve to have privacy and protection from being hacked.

Privacy is a Luxury

In 2015 Kent went to SDA Bocconi business school, Wharton business school, & HEC Paris business schools to study extensively the strategic management of luxury businesses to study many of the luxury brands of Europe and the United States. 001 was created to deliver a quality luxury gold standard of service.

Here Comes the Executive Protection Drones and the Only Company Using Them

World Protection Group (WPG) is the only company using drones as part of their executive protection services to keep their clients safe from potential harm. While WPG uses drones to aid the police, fire, emergency services, and FEMA, they also use them for their very own clients to keep them safe and help avoid intruders. Because high net worth individuals often have large properties, without the use of multiple security personnel, the area could be challenging to protect adequately. Drones allow an easy method for covering a large area to protect those from theft, physical harm, and intruders.

The Benefits of Drones

Speed: Drones can be deployed quicker than security personnel.

Coverage: They can also cover a larger area with an aerial view.

Accessibility: Drones also can be deployed in areas that might […]

How Can Drones Help in a Natural Disaster?

The recent earthquake in California had a magnitude of 7.1, resulting in shattered bottles, and it even left a crack in the Earth. The damage from earthquakes can range from minor to severe. While the shake itself might be terrifying, objects can fall, causing chaos in a city. During this chaos, people might go missing or get stuck under pieces of buildings and other debris that have fallen. Like quakes, any natural disaster can be dangerous, but drones security can help.

Using drones to find survivors and navigate disaster zones when time is short and the situation dire

Digital Privacy is Crucial to Modern Executive Protection Teams

Digital reputation management is one of those subjects that most people can’t understand until they have seen the results of an incident. The breadth and depth of the tools available to those with less than benevolent intentions in the modern age are staggering. The danger of ignoring the online world when it comes to executive security and privacy is undeniable. In some cases, it can be as bad or worse than any threat in the physical world.

While many hazards threaten only the high net worth individual’s reputation, others can create all kinds of ancillary problems, including:

  • coordinated activity threats
  • the potential of a real-world attack provoked by online activity 
  • various types of financial dangers
  • personal photo hacking

Public Safety Organizations Should Consider Sub-contracting Drone Services with a High-level Security Company

The advantages and convenience of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are becoming more and more attractive to public safety organizations like police and fire departments, emergency responders, rangers and lifeguards and also being used in search and rescue operations, construction and engineering companies.

Like many technical necessities, the operation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) is a candidate for outsourcing, especially in a changing regulatory environment and with the technology itself evolving at a rapid pace. Developing pilot & UAS expertise can be a significant investment for organizations that are already at their limits with regard to personnel and budgets.

These are among the reasons it can be a good idea to at least investigate the possibility of using a high-level security company to manage and deploy drones and other autonomous aircraft to help expand services and increase effectiveness for public […]
