When Are Executive Travel Protection Services Necessary?
Any time a high-net-worth or high-profile individual is traveling, protection should be provided. Many people assume this type of protection only needs to be employed when traveling abroad or when traveling to areas where cartels, gangs, and robbery are common. However, that’s not the case. Attacks can and frequently do occur when traveling even in the United States. Again, many of these attacks are kept from the media by the companies involved so as to not tarnish their reputation. They can occur in large cities, small suburbs, and in rural areas.
Protecting your executives and their families should always be a priority, and protection services should be used whenever there’s a risk to their safety.
Who Can Benefit from Executive Protection?
Anyone who is a high-profile individual or an executive with a high net worth can benefit from travel protection. The companies or organizations they work for also benefit from protecting them. The individual’s families or other travel companions also benefit from these services. While not all high-profile individuals or executives are going to be targets, anyone with a high net worth can be. Even those with a lower net worth may be targeted in certain parts of the world. If you have any questions about whether or not protection services are warranted, call Infortal for a consultation.
Kidnappers, muggers, terrorist organizations, and others typically do not discriminate about who they attack. Men and women, young people and older individuals, single people and those with families…anyone can be a target. Never assume that a larger man who regularly works out is safe traveling alone. While he may be able to fight off a single attacker, he may be overcome by multiple assailants or those with weapons. Several people traveling together can also be attacked and injured if they don’t have trained security with them. Never assume someone is safe or won’t be considered a target.
