Despite the unrest globally this December, the threat of terrorism has not diminished appreciably for VIPs and wealthy individuals needing high quality round the clock personal security.
Executive protection agencies like ours at WWPro are keenly aware of terrorists threats that face our principles and their parties – even today in the U.S. and Europe. Divisive political unrest and grievances can and do spill over into terrorist activities – from nationalistic groups and other actors.
The Rand Corporation’s Networks and Netwars observes: “…terrorists are on the cutting edge of organizational networking and gaining significantly from the information revolution. They harness technology to enable less hierarchical, more networked designs – enhancing flexibility, responsiveness and resilience to improve offensive operational capabilities for the war of ideas as well as…violent acts.” These capabilities are demonstrated by capitalizing on the large numbers of discontent unemployed or underemployed individuals in the U.S. and abroad via social media as networked nationalist or militia groups have created and maintain a level of conflict. Using this new methodology, dedicated terrorists are conducting integrated operations via dispersed nodes without the formalized structure or operational oversight of the past.
This is called “The New Age of Terrorism.”
Part of our work for our clients is monitoring a whole array of terrorist or terrorist-like threats that could focus on or spill over to our clients on our watch. Monitoring, and deep follow-up, plus constant surveillance that includes high tech and human observation within our teams.
