Executive Protection Companies in 2023: Choosing the Best

I was recently contacted by EP Wired to comment on what qualities we should expect in the best executive protection companies. EP Wired is an online magazine with a mission to bring together protectors, principals, EP program managers and future practitioners.

The best executive protection companies in 2023 are obviously supported by discrete and well-trained operators. These are obvious table stakes. However, they should also be transparent about who they use as EP operators, explain in detail their ongoing training, and be open to feedback.

The most significant indicator of an excellent EP company is its unwavering operational standards. Too often, companies are pressured by demanding clients to do more with less and will “bend,” thereby:

overtasking their operators and ultimately
risking the security of the principal.

The best companies will explain the necessity of adequate resources and maintain their baseline standards.

Always a pleasure to speak with the EP Wired team and support their mission by sharing information and experiences from past EP operations. 

Enjoy, engage an EP professional to support your operations, and be safe!

ASIS Argentina – High Risk Excutive Protection planning workshop

I am current Vice Chair and 2023 incoming Chair for the ASIS Crisis Management and Business Continuity Community. One of the many pleasures in the role, is all the wonderful people I get to meet from around the world. Lucas de la Rosa, the ASIS Argentina Chapter President, and I were speaking about planning Executive Protection (EP) operations in high risk environments, and how it would be great to run a workshop together in Buenos Aires.

After many discussions and exceptional planning by Lucas, we were able to host a session on the 26th of September where many ASIS Argentina Chapter members were in attendance. We covered a variety of topics including intelligence preparation, trip profile, communications, methods transport, medical concerns and after action procedures. The workshop finished with 4 teams having only 30 minutes to prepare an operational brief for a realistic high risk scenario. All teams did exceptionally well with most having never worked EP before. I was very impressed!
