Executive protection, also known as close protection or bodyguarding, refers to the security measures taken to ensure the safety of individuals who may be at risk due to their high-profile status, wealth, or other factors. This can include business executives, politicians, celebrities, or other individuals who may be targeted by criminal organizations, terrorists, or other potential threats.
Executive protection typically involves a team of trained security personnel who work to prevent and mitigate potential threats, often through a combination of surveillance, risk assessments, and physical protection measures such as escorting the individual in question to and from public events, securing their residence or workplace, and other measures as needed.
The goal of executive protection is to provide a high level of security and safety for the individual while minimizing disruptions to their daily life and activities. This can be a complex and challenging task, and requires specialized training and expertise in threat assessment, risk management, and physical security.
