Although an undeniably positive evolution, globalization has also had its negative influences on all areas of life, more specifically concerning both personal safety and the protection of investments located in critical areas around the globe.
We all know that in modern democratic society, public bodies, economic companies, media, cultural, entertainment and industrial organizations and others are managed by Senior Executives/Decisions Makers. These executives are symbols of power and wealth. Their high position places them in the public eye and media attention, and, as a result, they are liable to be targeted by both individuals and groups (competitors, terrorist and crime organizations, mentally unstable individuals, etc.).
Many of the VIPs/Executives often refrain from using protection services because of the lack of reliable and efficient professional services and because of the increase in price (due to the lack of a suitable infrastructure allowing better service for less money).
As a result, many of them take unnecessary risks, not only for themselves and their organizations but also for their families, employees and even innocent by passers.
A significant lack of sufficiently secure and safe conditions prevents and even jeopardizes economic developments and corporate expansion, and nowadays even sports events have become “high-risk” operations! The lack of sufficient secure and safe conditions/atmosphere for these VIPs/Executives prevents or reduces opportunities for development for the entire society.
We all witness and even take part in the special process that is occurring in many countries. There is a growing tendency of the authorities to transfer to security companies more responsibility for various security missions, traditionally held in the past by the law enforcement sector.
Security therefore, has taken the forefront in international, governmental and corporate strategies.
There is a steadily increasing need for qualified Protection Specialists capable of providing services related to the protection of public events and VIPs such as experts, engineers, journalists, medics and even UN senior officials.
Countries, companies and organizations worldwide are currently reestablishing themselves in order to fill the void in the security field.
