A NECESSITY IN THE 21St CENTURY!

ELITE PROTECTION PERSONNEL


The Modern “Samurai”, “Musketeer”, or “Biaoshi”!

Insights

We all know that in modern democratic society, public bodies, economic companies, media, cultural, entertainment and industrial organizations and others are managed by Senior Executives/Decisions Makers.

These Executives are symbols of power and wealth. Their high position places them in the public eye and media attention, and, as a result, they are liable to become Protégées targeted by both individuals and groups (competitors, terrorist and crime organizations, mentally unstable individuals, etc.).

A few hundred years ago in the western world there were those who chose to serve in the protection of their employers, and they were called “Musketeers”. In Asia, they were known as “Samurai” or “Biaushi” in China. No matter what they were called, all knew the definition of their profession and their duties:

to keep their Protégé’s secure and safe wherever they went.

Many romantic stories and legends were told about these unique individuals and in most of these stories they were described as the bravest of warriors, heroes, or supermen. This profession created an aura around those who chose to specialize and live by the rules of the field. It is one of the oldest professions in the world.

In the 21st century, those who deal with the protection of their employers are called Bodyguards, Close Protection, and VIP/Executive Protection specialists, more recently, they have been called PSD Operators and Personal Security Details/Detachments because of their deployment in High-risk zones in team which have become known as the most dangerous areas for VIPs (not necessary heads of state).

Today, The massive changes that globalization has brought to all areas of life has also created grave concerns for both personal safety and the protection of investments located in critical areas around the globe. These specially trained and highly skilled personnel are hired to protect individuals or assets of organizations that operate in High-Risk environments or may face violent crime or Terrorism encounters.

The need for qualified Elite Protection Operatives capable of providing services related to the protection of assets (sensitive installations) and Protegees /VIPs such as experts, engineers, journalists, UN employees and even cargo ship’s crews has increased tremendously.

Due to the high demand and need to privatize certain functions of government to the civilian workforce, this specialized field of Personal protection services has become one of the fastest growing sectors. countries, companies, and organizations worldwide are currently reestablishing themselves in order to fill the void in the security field.

This sector gave society a few norms of behavior that gained high respect and honor from its communities.

These specially trained and highly skilled personnel are hired to protect individuals or assets of organizations that operate in High-Risk environments or face High risk threats to their Protegees.

For years Women in positions of Female VIP Protection operatives are being sought after by VIPs to protect their families – wives and children 24/7 as priority, and themselves secondly if in High-Risk threat situations, when team is mandatory.

Female celebrities are very keen on the use of other females as bodyguards, as it is also a means of expressing their support of women’s empowerment. Especially due do to the fact that the VIP Protection sector has been a male-dominated field, there is a void posed by the absence of women in the field from which female clients can pick from.

Most VIP’s that are from various religions including cultural and diverse nationalities, are requiring female professionals for the protection of their wives and families.

Male bodyguards in a protection team consider their female counterparts as the ‘Secret Weapon’ of the strategic and tactical professional protection team!

In Israel we achieved great success in the integration of Females and males operatives to operate together in our law enforcement units for security and protection special operation missions. that “winning expertise” encouraged us at ISA – ISRAEL to share it also with our mates worldwide as we did in the past.

Unfortunately, many of the VIPs/Executives often refrain from using protection services because of the lack of reliable, efficient, and professional services. As a result, many of them take unnecessary risks, not only for themselves and their organizations but also for their families, employees.

The lack of sufficient secure and safe conditions/atmosphere for these VIPs/Executives prevents or reduces opportunities for economic development for the entire society.

“This is not merely an idea,
It’s the reality of the social and Global evolution.”

The “Modern Samurai” Females & Males operatives of the 21st Century are those to improve by their knowledge, expertise, functional capacities, and trust the needed protection services to these entrepreneurs, individuals, and organizations, to be better secure, safer conditions, and stable atmosphere even Beyond the boundaries of their home region or country.

We should take the lead for the Global economic raise up!

ISA – ISRAEL CONTRIBUTION

In order to empower and to encourage the economy’s entrepreneurs’ activities worldwide, We the Security Executives in the various Security and Protection sectors, must also improve ourselves and accumulate as much expertise, functional capacities, and trust of being able for providing to these entrepreneurs, individuals, and organizations, better secure, safer conditions, and stable atmosphere even Beyond the boundaries of their home region or country.
