CEOs, are you using untrained Bodyguards or Buddyguards?

As a CEO, you may rely on others to make necessary protection arrangements for you. This includes your security detail when you are traveling or going to special events. Unfortunately, the person making your arrangements may not know all there is to know about executive protection, and you could end up with a Bodyguard, or worse, a Buddyguard.

What are Bodyguards and Buddyguards?

Bodyguards are untrained thugs who are typically large in stature and hired to protect an individual. However, due to their lack of training, they are not the best option when it comes to real protection and security.  They may be able to bench press 400 lbs. but unable to survive a type of semi-organized attack on you.

A buddyguard takes bodyguard one step further. A buddyguard becomes friends with the individual they […]

All billionaires should never get your mail at home

When you are a high-net-worth individual, you want to protect your privacy, confidentiality,  and avoid any potential security issues. It is especially true when it comes to your home and family. You never want to put your loved ones in a dangerous situation that should have been avoided. One of the best ways to enhance your executive security when you are a billionaire is never to get your mail at home. 

When you give your address to anyone for mailing purposes, your address goes into databases where anyone can find you. People can then use this information to go to your home and cause harm to you or your loved ones. 

When Purchasing your Home

Before you get comfortable in your new home, there are a few things to do to ensure your security […]

Executive Protection – get out of the dinosaur ages & use encrypted communication

To truly protect our clients, we believe in using encrypted communication. When our agents are on a protection detail, texting on regular messaging apps and communicating through personal emails just won’t cut it.

In the past, you may have been able to send a text through your phone’s messaging app without worrying about it getting intercepted by the wrong person. However, in today’s world, those with sensitive information need to protect themselves. To provide the ultimate level of protection, you need encrypted communications.

What is Encrypted Communication?

Encryption is essential for securing data and protecting sensitive information. It’s a method of proactive safety that allows peace of mind.

Everything is crackable, including your cell phone, and especially your email account. Encrypted communication allows us to still communicate in the modern world, but without the […]

Creating ROI for the CEO that pays 100% for Executive Protection Services

One of the many questions we are asked is: How do high-net-worth individuals pay for executive protection? The answer is simple: Executive Protection pays for itself by creating a return on investment (ROI) for the CEO, paying 100% for their protection services.

Many make the mistake of believing that Executive Protection is about only being a bodyguard. What protection comes down to is careful meticulous planning and client time management. With all of the time saved, you can make it to more meetings, do more work, and make more money.

For example, if a billionaire is driving himself to essential meetings, they may only make it to four meetings a day. However, with executive protection, you can save time and ultimately make more money, some of which will pay for the services. The […]

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 […]

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.

Privacy is a Luxury

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 […]
