Executive Security & The Dangers of Public Appearances

Executive Security and Protection Services For Any Occasion

Executive security and protection services are essential pieces of the puzzle during worker strikes. Close protection bodyguards from AFIMAC Global are the ultimate tactic for executives and politicians who must still make public appearances despite ongoing labor turmoil. Executives who represent large workforces and politicians who employ public servants often feel the wrath of their workforce and the general public. Without the right precautions in place, serious personal injuries can occur to both you and your family members.

Executives see the worst side of their workforce during a worker or union strike, with tensions running high even before official strike action. Simply leaving home can come with risks, while public appearances present danger that must be carefully planned for with security resources every step of the way.  

What’s at Stake During Public Appearances?

Business meetings, public speaking engagements, or even attending an award show or gala create elements of uncertainty that should never be overlooked. During a labor strike, members of your workforce may look at these public appearances as an opportunity to disrupt the event or make good on threats that have been uttered in the past. Verbal harassment and heckling during a speaking engagement can also result in embarrassing video clips being shared online thousands of times. 

Your striking workforce could make threats in public spaces or events simply because the public is aware of the scheduled appearance. These scenarios call for extensive personal security resources, including close protection bodyguards that can mitigate risks well before they occur. Lean on AFIMAC to provide secure transportation and dispatch security resources to your location that can mull over the details of the event space to prevent these issues from ever occurring. AFIMAC can even collaborate with those hosting an event, reviewing security precautions, limiting access to the event space, and gathering details on unwanted guests that could pose security risks.

Stalker Concerns and Issues Related to Activist Groups

Executives in the oil and natural resources sector continue to draw negative attention from activist groups who may take a more “in-person” approach to their political activities. While social media outrage is one concern altogether, when online conversations turn angry, it’s not uncommon for some individuals to plan for something more like picketing, protesting, or large organized demonstrations. In extreme circumstances, some groups may look at a busy speaking schedule as an opportunity to disrupt the event itself or hold a large-scale protest. In the very worst-case scenario, some activists or stalkers may consider visiting the home of a high-ranking executive.

You are in the absolute best of hands when facing these kinds of concerns. AFIMAC full-service executive protection security details remain by the side of their VIP until a threat has been mitigated. By using world-class security and protection techniques, paired with private intelligence offerings, threats can be closely analyzed, predicted, monitored, and then mitigated alongside the specialists at AFIMAC Global.

The Importance of Intelligence Gathering

When executives must partake in large public events, greater care must be taken to lock down the event space and use intelligence to mitigate security risks. Striking workforces often use social media and other public forums to plan protests and vent their frustrations. With careful intelligence monitoring on behalf of AFIMAC, our specialists can pinpoint individuals who pose a risk of violence and help your security detail stay ahead of what comes next. 

Between planned protests, demonstrations, and threats, staying well informed of online chatter can work to ensure an executive or politician’s safety. Partner with AFIMAC and quietly monitor your workforce and public discussions to remain educated on potential security risks.
