Protecting High Net Worth Individuals and Families
The World Protection Group specializes in protecting high-net worth individuals and their families from any type of threat, invasion of privacy, random crime, and unnecessary embarrassment. Our highly-trained executive protection agents are trained to reduce risks to your security and privacy while operating with discretion and allowing you to maintain your normal lifestyle.
Our protocol is based on the U.S. Secret Service’s “3 Rings of Protection,” which provides maximum protection while minimizing intrusiveness and prioritizes proactive and preventative executive security.
A well-structured security engagement begins with thorough risk and vulnerability assessment of – as appropriate – your residence(s), corporate office(s), and you and your family’s lifestyle and routines. This allows us to identity, prioritize, and address your most potent sources of risk.
Executive Protection Agents
Our executive protection agents are recruited from the ranks of former military and law enforcement as well as some private-sector entities, and must complete a rigorous education and certification process, complete with our best-in-class executive protection training programs.
In addition to defense, combat, and firearms training, our agents are trained to perform advance work and planning, logistics, emergency medical response, communications and surveillance. They are certified in Emergency First Aid, CPR/AED, and always travel with trauma kits. These agents are also thoroughly screened with intense (and regularly-updated) background checks and psychological assessments and strength tests.
In addition, the World Protection Group carries $10 million in armed liability insurance (almost all other firms only carry $1 million or less) as well as workers’ compensation insurance to shield you from potential lawsuits. This minimizes your liability, whereas relying on in-house security typically adds to your potential liability and risk. Our mission is to bring you total peace of mind.
Executive Protection: Estate Security
Protecting your residence(s), family, and personal property is often at the center of a personal security engagement. We offer 24/7/365 coverage and response and our services can include some or all of armed and unarmed executive protection agents, access control, barriers and alarms, and electronic security systems.
We also provide appropriate security policies and procedures as well as security awareness training and collaboration with family, staff, and visitors.

Executive Protection: Your Lifestyle
With a World Protection Group security team, you can live your normal lifestyle. Our executive protection agents are trained to operate “in the background” and in a covert manner.
When you travel, your protection begins with thorough intelligence and advance work, with agents visiting all points of your itinerary prior to your arrival. They assess threats and gather protective intelligence, and then write a security plan that includes primary and secondary routes, nearest trauma hospitals, safe rooms, and front and back entrances. Agents meet in advance with key personnel at each location and always have back-up plans ready to avert a possible threat. We also maintain a library of continuously updated advance information for locations you frequently visit.
Of course, you may often find yourself making spur-of-the-moment decisions to go somewhere, and even plans made in advance can change with little notice. Protecting you in these situations is a normal, routine matter for our security teams.
Even sudden international travel does not stretch our capabilities. Our international travel security is best in class and often works in partnership with officers with the necessary local knowledge and relationships. We have resources in 22 regions around the world serving 95% of the world’s cities.
Protecting Your Privacy
Top-tier executive protection goes beyond protecting your physical safety and also includes protecting your privacy from those who are too curious or who might pose a threat to your reputation (identity theft, revealing information online, etc.). The World Protection Group employs a comprehensive suite of tools and procedures to protect your privacy, including genuinely unbreakable encryption for your communications.
In addition, our agents and security teams are trained to be discreet. Every one of them is bound by a confidentiality agreement. The World Protection Group has worked for a number of high-profile individuals and has never experienced a case of a client considering the conduct of an agents as either inappropriate or unbecoming. Further, our procedures also ensure that individual agents only have access to the information they need to do their job of protecting you, without unnecessary detail. They are trained to operate, wherever possible, in the background. High-quality personal security should not be intrusive.
Personal Security – More Than a Bodyguard or “Buddyguard”
Personal security is not a commodity and goes well beyond “hiring a bodyguard”. Your protection is only as good as the agents on the ground, the technologies they use, the procedures that they’ve been trained to follow, and the management team that oversees their work.
While many companies claim to provide executive protection, security services are not a commodity, and there are many shades of competency and quality. We recommend that high net worth individuals consider questions like a company’s track record serving similar clients, its relationships with law enforcement, and the training and standards that it applies to its agents.
