When you think of personal security, the picture of the secret service may come to mind. The only problem with this picture is the fact that the need for personal security services is no longer only of presidential importance. Many executives now face the need for such security in today's society and here are some reasons why.
Social media is a great tool for keeping in touch, drumming up business and sharing life's wonderful moments. However, social media also presents a security risk for top executives. Many top executives employ a generation that is constantly in touch with some kind of social media via tablets or smartphones. This makes the possibility of personal information being leaked to the masses very great. Top executives enjoy the perks financially but that makes them of great risk to such crimes as kidnapping. With social media fueling the fire, any number of people may know exactly where they are at all times of the day.
Large Crowds and Social Settings
As an executive, the probability that many more people know who they are than they actually know themselves is astounding. In a city like New York, executives are constantly in large crowds and any of the people passing may know more about them than they could ever think possible. This can cause these executives to become a target in any social setting or even on private time. As mentioned earlier, social media opens this door and being in the "Big Apple" can create the perfect storm for crimes to happen.
The Bottom Line
Executives are vital to their organizations and need to be able to fully focus on the job at hand. With personal security services, these executives can feel free to focus on what matters without worrying about traveling, being in large crowds or being found on a social media site.
