Executive Protection Support Paris & London

The Issue

On the heels of the November 2015 Paris terror attacks, 360 Worldwide Security was contacted by a Silicon Valley–based global leader in ecommerce requesting supplemental executive protection support for a trip to Paris and London. Tensions were high, as the journey was scheduled to occur during the World Climate Summit and just days after the Paris attacks. Due to the timing, logistical support for this trip would be complex.

The Solution

Working very closely with our client’s Director of Executive Protection, we planned the trip based upon a fluid itinerary and prearranged all necessary logistical support personnel. Prior to the client’s arrival, our security specialist traveled to London and Paris to continue the advance work. Reviewing restaurants, meeting locations, and hotels while working with assigned drivers, our specialist was able to finalize an effective security plan before the client’s plane landed in Paris. After a short stay in Paris, the group traveled to London where our security specialist had already completed the required advance work. The journey was finalized without incident.

How Our Client Benefited

By utilizing our contracted security services, the client was able to supplement their existing executive protection department in order to meet the challenges associated with this trip without the onerous costs of employing a large executive protection team. The use of our specialist allowed the company’s Executive Protection Director to stay with his senior executives before and during the trip while 360 Worldwide Security conducted the crucial advance work and supported the client’s movement on the ground. Senior executives commented that they were glad the trip had gone so well and that the security agents played a significant role in the success.
