Driver joins Olaf Scholz’s motorcade in a security breach!

A recent incident involving German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s security convoy highlights the importance of motorcade operations in executive protection. Though the motorcade itself is a strong protectionary measure, we in the close protection field are highly aware that vehicle movements, particularly drops & pick-ups, are our weakest points.                      According to media reports, a man, unauthorized, drove his vehicle into and joined Scholz’s official convoy and then approached him, all while under the influence of drugs. The incident occurred as Scholz was on his way to his government plane at Frankfurt Airport after a meeting at the European Central Bank. The…

Confidentiality and Discretion for Celebrity Nannies

In the world of celebrity and high-net-worth families, nannies play a vital role in providing care and support for their children. However, working in these exclusive environments requires an extra level of confidentiality and discretion. You are solely responsible for the lives and the wellbeing of these little ones, and by proxy, their parents and close family as well. As you may be aware of, or find out through a quick online search, there are many nannies who used to work for either celebrities or public families, who knew far too much, and who are ‘’spilling the beans” to any…

When ”talk is (NOT) cheap” – Jennifer Aniston’s Bodyguard

Talk, talk, talk talk, talk….A perfect example…The latest article that hit our inbox about a ‘’bodyguard’’ and his celebrity client, and one of the most hot and extensively discussed topic resurfaces….again…The importance of confidentiality and discretion in the realm of personal security. We know, we know, this is a subject that never seems to die, but it never gets an opportunity to, because there is always some misguided individual that speaks too loudly or blogs too harshly. These two pillars – confidentiality and discretion – form the cornerstone of a robust professional relationship between a close protection agent and their…

Redefining ‘Demand’: The Under-utilized Potential of Women in Executive Protection

Today, I would like to touch on a topic that often causes angst, and indeed sparks controversy. Quite often, I hear the phrase ‘’Women in Executive Protection are in high demand’’, or ‘’We need more women in EP’’. But do we? Really? From my experience both in training and also placing female agents with clients and other companies (And I would love to hear your stories as well) we already have plenty of amazing female EP agents. There is no shortage of well-trained, experienced female EP agents. Yet, they often find themselves pigeonholed into entry-level roles or called upon only…

Parents! In today’s digital age, it’s crucial to equip our children with the knowledge and skills to stay safe online. Here are ten essential tips to teach your children, empowering them to navigate the digital world while protecting their well-being and giving you peace of mind! 1) Keep all your personal information private: Never share your full name, address, phone number, school name, or other sensitive details online, especially with strangers.

The Crucial Role of Customer Care in Close Protection

Executive protection agents play a pivotal role in safeguarding the lives, families, and reputations of ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNW), C-Suite executives, and celebrities. These prominent figures often lead very demanding lifestyles, and face unique security challenges due to their high-profile status, which necessitates the presence of professional protectors. To add to that, they have personal traits, unique preferences, and their day-to-day needs as well. While the primary responsibility of an executive protective team is to ensure the safety and well-being of their clients, it’s also essential for protective agents to adopt a customer care approach when working with these individuals. In…

Enhancing Household Safety: The Importance of Teaching Security Awareness to Household Personnel

How many times throughout history has an entire army successfully protected their ruler from repeated assassinations, attacks from foreign armies, and attempted coups, only to have their leader be killed by a close and trusted aide?

Protecting the children of the rich and famous

”Protecting the children of the rich and famous is not a new thought process. Since the dawn of time, rulers, warriors, and leaders of men have always assigned protectors to their children. They realized that they were their most prized possession and must be safeguarded at all costs, whether to carry on their legacy, continue a royal bloodline, and because they were the very essence of their lives. And for those who have been in our industry long enough, they have experienced, at some point in time, working with the children of their clients as well. However, as the clientele…

The Art of Brand Management for Close Protection Companies

During our combined 56 years in the industry, we have seen many close protection companies making huge mistakes marketing themselves, either because they can not afford it and do it themselves (and do it the wrong way), or they choose the wrong marketing company/service to represent them and what they intended to portray to the marketable public is lost or misrepresented. Brand management is a critical component of any successful business strategy, regardless of the industry or niche. The security industry is highly competitive, and building a strong brand can differentiate your company from the competition. Also, brand management is…
