Contracting Executive Protection providers to cover 24-hour security for the principal usually includes the protectee’s private home, office, and travel. That is because a potential attacker is most likely going to look for alternative routes to ambush the client. Close family, friends, and entourage will be first on their radar.
The principles of executive protection are centered around the four pillars of defense — risk, intelligence, advance, and location. They describe a dynamic environment in which the methods used are situational, but not identical depending on your role in EP. The principles themselves, however, remain the same.
Individuals Most Likely to Require Protection:
- Executives and CEOs.
- Professional athletes.
- Musicians and Performers.
- Wealthy individuals.
Executive protection, in addition to keeping people safe, also enables higher productivity by making travel and everyday logistics as smooth as possible. Secure travel eliminates waiting for cabs and waiting at the car rental counter.
This is similar to the well-known Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analyses so familiar to the corporate world. In the EP industry, we call this a Risk, Threat and Vulnerability Assessment (RTVA). The purpose of the SWOT and the RTVA exercises is similar: Know where you stand before you start planning how to move ahead.
