Bodyguards & Personal Protection: Al Qaeda Targets Business Leaders

A new emphasis is being placed on the importance of bodyguards and personal protection services this week as the terror group Al Qaeda announces its new focus. FoxNews.com reports that they are calling for would-be jihads to target business leaders in the United States. Their aim: disrupt our economy.

Al Qaeda issued this directive through their online magazine Inspire. The cover featured a photo of a hooded killer waiting outside of an upscale home. The headline read, “Professional Assassinations” with the subheading, “Home Assassinations.” Is the intent to have terror supporters attack the homes of business executives?

An additional photo of Microsoft Founder Bill Gates had blood splattered across it with a handgun lying next to it. The message seems clear: No target is too big.

Business in California

This news should be especially alarming for California, the home of some of the largest and best-known businesses in the world. According to the United States Census, there are 889,646 businesses in the state. No doubt, most readers will be familiar with some of these names:

  • Apple
  • Microsoft
  • Facebook
  • Activision
  • Adobe
  • Cisco
  • Disney
  • Google
  • Hilton
  • HP
  • Intel
  • Levi-Strauss
  • Netflix
  • Petco
  • Sun Microsystems
  • Yahoo!

The Entertainment Industry

In the Southern California region, there are 480,000 businesses headquartered here. Los Angeles County alone lists 252,982! Some of those businesses have a very high profile. They make up the core of the TV, radio, film and entertainment industry in the United States.

Our entertainment has been a particular target of much of the propaganda espoused by terror groups such as Al Qaeda and Isis. It’s not a stretch, then, to think that these well-known companies might be on the radar of would-be terrorists.

Best Security Guard Company in Los Angeles and Southern California

Security agent watching Los Angeles downtown areaAs one of the leading providers of specialized security solutions in Southern California, American Security Force believes that hiring a security company is more than just a business expenditure. It is an investment that goes towards protecting your company’s assets and personnel. To justify that investment you need to know that you are getting value for the security dollars you’re spending.

To ensure you get that value, choose your security provider wisely. Look for a security company that will place the needs of your organization first, and one that will be transparent and reactive through the course of their service to you.

As you assess security providers, make sure the communication channels with them are open before you sign the contract. Are you comfortable dealing with them? Gauge their responses as you ask them about their services.  Are your questions being answered in a way that alleviates your concerns?

You will want your security partner to listen to your needs, goals and concerns and then provide you with solutions that are appropriate to your situation. If they have no recommendations, perhaps this is not the best company for you

When interviewing companies, ask them how they support their security guards in the field. What type of people do they hire for guard positions? Does the company invest in security training for its personnel? Are the guards equipped with everything they need to do their jobs properly? Do they use new technology?

These are important questions because it will be the guards who will implement the security plan at your property. Knowing how the security company supports them informs you of how the guards will perform. A security provider that empowers their employees to do their job correctly will have guards with better attitudes that will go the extra mile for the client, and be better able to provide the appropriate level of service.

If you’re curious about the particular guards that will be posted at your property, ask to meet them.

Nowadays scammers can even come to your house and pretend to represent security companies.

Above all, trust your gut. If you feel uncomfortable about any aspect of the proposed security service, don’t sign the contract. Talk to another company.

American Security Force is proud to offer highly trained and professional security guards to businesses throughout Southern California. Our goal is to provide innovative and custom-crafted security solutions that meet your needs. Our guards are equipped with the latest technology that allows for real-time, remote monitoring.

Personal Protection and Bodyguards Los Angeles

celebrity bodyguard los angeles, vip protection hollywoodIf you follow the news at all, you’ve read or seen surprising stories about security lapses at high-level institutions. In October, a lone gunman raced into the Canadian Parliament where he shot and killed a soldier before he himself was killed.

Last September a man climbed the fence outside of the White House and actually made it inside. There have been a number of incidents where others have jumped the same fence but were stopped on the White House grounds.

But perhaps the most daring incident occurred in 2009 when Tareq and Michaele Salahi actually slipped past security to attend a state dinner where they mingled with the president, vice president and staff.

The breach was considered one of the worst White house breaches on record.

Fortunately, none of the White House security breaches resulted in anyone being harmed. But they easily could have.

These are stories about high-level security teams being thwarted. People can be daring, and if someone wants to get to you, they will find a way. The Canadian Parliament and White House can beef up their existing security. But if you are a person of note, what can you do to keep yourself and your family safe?
