Business managers today often attract unwelcome attention from a variety of quarters, including terrorists, criminals, disgruntled ex-employees, activists, violent pressure groups and political demonstrators. Usually, the company is the real target but it is the company’s executives who are vulnerable to attack – sometimes for the purposes of industrial espionage and blackmail or, at worst, extortion and kidnap for ransom. More commonly, however, business managers – and sometimes their families – are far more vulnerable to straightforward criminal assault or theft. Although this can occur at home or at the office it usually takes place when travelling, especially overseas.
Senior executives and business managers also become collectively exposed on certain regular occasions such as at international management meetings and annual general meetings.
Pinkerton Consulting & Investigations has a long and distinguished track record of providing personal security services to individuals and companies across the world. Our professionals always assess the risk as the first step of any personal security assignment, since this will fundamentally affect the type and methods of protection to be engaged. Thereafter, we provide residential and office security surveys; advice on security system design and installation; travel security advice; driving and mobile security training; and close protection teams when required. The latter are usually unobtrusive yet reassuring, except when they are deployed at sensitive meetings when their obvious presence acts as a deterrent to potential troublemakers. Our close protection teams are professional, well trained and experienced so that clients can rely upon a dependable and consistent standard of service.
In addition, Pinkerton’s Global Intelligence Service (see Business Intelligence) can keep you up to date with daily analysis of political, terrorist and criminal activity occurring worldwide.
