Executive Protection (EP), also known as close protection, refers to security and risk mitigation measures taken to ensure the safety of individuals or their families, who may be exposed to elevated personal risk because of their employment, high-profile status, net worth, affiliations, or geographical location. The world can be a dangerous place for these high-profile individuals, with the threats of assault, stalking, theft, kidnapping, invasion of privacy, and even murder, a stark reality. With strategic risk assessments and advanced planning, our team of discreet professionals are dedicated to ensuring the safeties of these vulnerable individuals from physical, financial, and reputational harm.

Our teams can facilitate operations on the ground and on the water simultaneously with the appropriate resources and counter measures necessary to always safeguard persons and assets during maritime related travels and asset movement.
