Commonly referred to as “body guards”, these protection agents draw from decades of experience in corporate, law enforcement, federal agencies and military backgrounds. Understanding that protecting an individual requires more than surrounding them with well-trained agents, our operatives rely on advance work and threat assessment to identify potential risks – preventing an incident before it occurs. They have provided highly visible protection details for the wealthiest, most powerful individuals and corporations in the world, in addition to those who simply have increased vulnerability in their communities. These highly trained operatives are also capable of providing discrete, practically undetectable protection for corporations, individuals and families who desire peace of mind.
Whether in a corporate setting, residential setting, or traveling domestically and abroad, protection agents allow our clients to tend to their business uninhibited by safety details and distractions.
Ensuring daily operations go uninterrupted, and Tier 1 executives are free to perform their duties. As CIP practitioners, we determine vulnerabilities and analyze alternatives in order to prepare for incidents, focusing on improving the capability to detect and warn of impending attacks on, and system failures within, the critical elements of the infrastructure. Business continuity plans are vital to the ongoing success of the corporation.
Elements of service such as Kidnap & Ransom, Threats, and Extortion must be considered not only for top level executives, but for their families and staff as well.
Conducted by professionals responsible for Security Assessments at sites including NASA, a Site Security Assessment at the corporate level, where security weaknesses and vulnerabilities can be pinpointed, and liabilities mitigated. A comprehensive report is then prepared providing recommendations regarding structure and personnel. No detail is left unaddressed, from electronic security measures, security personnel, Emergency Response Plans, points of ingress and egress, parking, lighting, access control, etc.
Much like a Corporate Site Security Assessment, a Residential Assessment addresses security vulnerabilities and weaknesses for executive residences. In addition to evaluating many of the same security aspects above, this assessment looks at daily routines, family Emergency Response Plans, safe rooms, and personal safety / protection training for family members, which affords everyone in the family a sense of peace regarding their safety at home.
Threat, risk and vulnerability assessment are an objective evaluation in which the measurement of both of the quantities in which risk assessment is concerned - potential loss and probability of occurrence – are considered and presented. Administrative, Logical and Physical Safeguards are then recommended.
A non-law enforcement approach to recognizing and managing threats by a multi-disciplinary team, Clark International employs effective techniques to reduce the potential for targeted violence.
We Perform and manage electronic countermeasures sweeps (detection of telephone/fax/computer taps) to determine the existence of actual audio and video devices and to determine the client's vulnerability to electronic eavesdropping devices (bugs and wiretaps). Additionally, we can monitor for these devices during high-level meetings (i.e., Board of Directors). We recommend appropriate remedial security steps to prevent future loss of technical or proprietary information.
There are two types of electronic eavesdropping inspections:
• Emergency inspections that are conducted when active eavesdropping is
• Active inspections that are conducted to:
◦ Protect individual privacy and personal safety
◦ Limit windows of vulnerability
◦ Satisfy legal requirements for due diligence
◦ Establish legal eligibility for business secret status in court
◦ Identify emerging privacy invasion and information theft loopholes
It is difficult to estimate how many industries and individuals fall victim to illegal and unwanted surveillance. Evidence of illegal surveillance is often suppressed to avoid publicity or, in some cases, alerting the perpetrator. Many companies are unaware that industrial espionage has affected their business. Eavesdropping and video surveillance may affect several aspects of the following every day business success:
• Labor union disputes with company management
• New product or trade secrets
• Protection of trade secrets
• Negotiation of strategies
• Competitor’s knowledge of sales strategies
• Reorganization plans such as mergers or takeovers
• Corporate legal problems
• Protection of financial information
• Industrial spies from other companies and/or countries
• Employee spying on each other (peeping tom, sexual harassment, stalking)
Generally, best practice for most businesses would include a quarterly inspection. The sensitivity level of the area to be covered will dictate whether more or fewer inspections are required. A semi-annual inspection schedule is the next most common practice and an annual inspection is considered minimal for continuity purposes. Off-site meetings and other special events are scheduled on a demand basis.
Highly trained operatives develop Intelligence necessary for the safety and continued operation of corporate and residential settings.
