Executive protection (EP), also known as close personal protection, refers to security measures taken to ensure the safety of VIPs or other individuals who may be exposed to elevated personal risk because of their employment, celebrity status, wealth, associations or geographical location.
The threats facing an executive vary widely depending on the size of the company, the industry it belongs to and the individual executive’s profile. CSOs in oft-targeted sectors such as the financial services, pharmaceutical and energy industries and those with executives based overseas, worry about threatening letters, e-mails, workplace violence, kidnapping, carjacking, mail-borne explosives and biological agents amidst others.
Given the range of risks involved, CSOs who have managed executive protection programs know that protecting an individual is a very different discipline from securing a facility. A top executive can’t be locked down unlike a building with a single gate. There are numerous ways for an attacker to get to an executive, including through family members. Executives will also rebel against onerous security restrictions. CSOs thus face the challenge of calibrating protection that serves their organizations’ need while also making the security palatable to the executives who have to live with it.
Security India caters to this challenging task by providing trained individuals from an ex-defence services (including officers as team leads) background. These individuals have the distinction of having worked with elite forces and the top-brass of the Indian Army as well as with HNIs and VIPs in the corporate sector. Our team of trained EP executives, plan, anticipate and mitigate risks while ensuring the safety of vital people assets. Our effective EP services are based on research and preparation rather than just use of sheer muscle.
