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 […]
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 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:
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 […]
Media management is becoming a larger and larger issue for businesses and individuals of all kinds. The need to protect reputation, especially in an always-connected online world, drives the imperative for security, consultants and even bodyguards to recognize how quickly a threat can develop, why the response must be as measured as possible and why any combination of circumstances can lead to a variety of immediate and ongoing problems.
The good news is the demand for sophisticated protection from unwanted intrusion by scandal-mongers and privacy-violators is creating a well-trained force of highly competent and proactive security professionals […]
If you are looking for ways to protect your property and the people who inhabit it, the very last thing you want to do is make a bad decision and increase the danger and risk you face. The right choices when it comes to security are not optional, because the wrong choices can make things worse in ways that you probably haven’t considered.
The entire purpose of a contract security organization is to imagine the worst, and then prepare for what lies beyond even that. They are trained to expect the unexpected in ways that the average […]
Traveling in and out of a foreign country can be dangerous, especially for billionaires and other high-net-worth individuals and their families. Here are the five biggest threats billionaires face when traveling out of China.
Possibility of Violence
It’s essential to have somebody do an intelligence report on the foreign country so that they know what the threats and concerns are. These reports can uncover everything from crime-ridden areas of a city to the possibility of violence. There could already be violence occurring in the area, so it’s important to know what places to avoid when you’re a high-net-worth individual. Violence can also […]
When one imagines the application of drone technology to security, it’s relatively easy to recognize the immediate benefit. What if you had a mobile security camera? The idea isn’t new, of course. Aerial photography has been used by law enforcement and the military for nearly 100 years.
If the application is executive security, however, photography isn’t always enough. The organizations tasked with the safety and welfare of high-ranking corporate personnel, politicians, dignitaries and their families have to consider all the possible threats and find a way to utilize the tools they have to prevent injury and […]
It’s the era of the internet in which many people resign to give up their privacy to corporations and the government so that they can go to their favorite websites or use the internet as a resource for learning. In 2018, Congress voted to allow internet service providers to collect and sell customers’ browsing data, making the internet one of the least private places in the world.
Cybersecurity expert Bruce Schneier recently spoke with the Gazette about government and corporate surveillance and what internet users can do to protect their privacy.
The government has made little strides to protect citizens’ privacy, […]
