They need our services so that they can get on with their lives safely and productively. Of course, budgets always matter, and all EP companies face competition. But unless we are putting our clients’ needs at the center of what we do, we’re not doing our jobs. When demand for good agents is greater than supply, the best agents will look at a job’s training opportunities and include these in their decision-making. They might be happy with a job that doesn’t put much emphasis on training. Though many thousands of candidates attend schools and other training programs worldwide every year, only a tiny percentage will complete these programs and successfully transition into this field.

Glazebrook says it’s tough to demonstrate the benefits of executive protection in black and white. “It’s not like loss prevention, where you can show numbers to show success. It’s very, very hard to benchmark.” But having that extra protection may deter an attack, or even an accident. In many cases, the security personnel who accompany the executives shouldn’t stick out.
Security professionals mostly retired NSG, defense and police personnel. Specialized training to handle all kind of threat perceptions & intelligence gathering. The skills required are vigilance, sixth sense, body language, proactive approach, calmness, presence of mind. Cyber security tools are a must for businesses or individuals interested in ensuring their privacy and safeguarding a person. Keeping a database of “persons of interest.” These are people with a history of trying to reach executives either in person or via different forms of communication. Providing special protection of communication devices and selected meeting areas to prevent covert listening.
Corporate leaders in high-tech industries, biotechnology firms, defense contractors and banks might be among those who warrant a closer look. D’Angerio says that a new executive protection program requires education for the stakeholders to understand what exactly it does. Often, the decision to establish anexecutive protection program is reactionary, says Mónica Duperon Rodríguez, Senior Manager of Executive Protection and Global Event Security at LinkedIn. “Many executives will say, ‘my risk level is very low.’ However, they don’t consider that a low threat level is still a threat level,” she says.

The conference draws all kinds of stakeholders from all five “slices” of the protection industry, all in one place, for several intense days.
