HOW WE WORK

Our process

The first step with all our clients is to meet and understand their lifestyle and their concerns. We conduct a thorough security and risk assessment to determine the precise nature of any client’s requirements.

After this initial assessment, we will design a complete package suited to your specific needs. Our close protection is always fluid and dynamic. As your lifestyle and the threats associated with it change, so will our protection.

The more we learn and understand, the better we can tailor our service to suit your individual situation.
