Special Events Security for Prevention, Protection, and Organization

Special Events Security

When you're hosting a special event, you want everything to go smoothly. Whether it's a small event or a large one, it's still important that everything should take place in a tasteful and organized manner. In fact, special events security can help you to do this.

Running the Event in an Organized Manner

Special events security can make sure that people know where they are going and that there's no rushing around which can lead into accidents. If necessary, they can make sure everyone forms a line and that they are let in one by one. They can also handle it if there seems to be any aggressive behavior at the event or outside it.

Protecting Celebrities from Eager Fans

If you are hosting any high-level celebrities at your event, that makes it even more necessary to have special events security. Sometimes, it is possible for people to get out of hand when they see their favorite celebrities in person. It's possible for them to try to push through the lines and get a better view or even touch their favorite celebrity. And although it would not be a problem if only one person were trying to do this, it can get really out of hand when there are a number of fans trying to get closer to a celebrity.

Preventing Herd Mentality From Taking Hold

Even if you're not expecting any high-level celebrities, it is possible for people to behave differently when they are in a group. There's something known as herd mentality in which people start doing what other people are doing.

Sometimes, this can be beneficial. For example, if one person gives a standing ovation, other people also start giving standing ovations. But sometimes, it can get out of hand when the audience at your event starts behaving in a negative way and others also follow suit. Fortunately, having special events security can help you to avoid situations of this sort.

Celebrity Protection: Three Fundamental Tips You Need to Know

celebrity protection

Celebrities spend millions of dollars per year to keep themselves and their properties safe. For instance, early this year, Business Insider reported that rapper 50 Cent spends $70,000 a month to secure his 52-room Connecticut mansion. The total amount he spends annually to secure his properties and for personal security is cross to $1.6 million. 

As you can see, protecting celebrities today is much more than physically shielding them from harm by rogue fans or enemies. It encompasses a broad range of services such as close protection, preventing unwanted intrusions and property protection.

If your mandate as a security leader is to protect celebrities, here are key fundamentals you need to keep in mind.

Conducting Risk Analysis

The first step you need to take is to conduct a comprehensive risk analysis. There are several questions you will need to ask as part of the risk analysis. Does the client regularly travel to dangerous places? Has there been a history of security threats against the celebrity? What kind of security threat is your client most venerable?  This step requires full cooperation from the celebrity to make a strong case for protection.

Protection of Property

According to the recent news published on news.co.au, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint of $14 million in jewels and phones. You should, therefore, ensure the celebrity's personal and work devices are secure. All sensitive data on those devices should also be encrypted using powerful data encryption software. For home protection, you can hire highly-trained security detail and install high-tech systems such as digital fingerprint identification and motion-triggered cameras.

Educate Celebrities About Possible Threats

Many fans do not have bad intentions, but your mandate as a security leader is to educate your client about potential security threats they may face. You can start with security awareness training to help them determine a real risk from just a typical fan.

Why Is Celebrity Protection Services a Great Investment

Celebrity Protection Services

Many people envy the celebrity lifestyle, but few people understand the danger that comes with their fame. For instance, according to Mercury News, "late rapper, Nipsey Hussle went to his clothing store without security to help his friend get new clothes and was murdered". Incidents like these heighten the need for celebrity security protection. In fact, a personal bodyguard is different from security and work differently to meet celebrity needs, but have a few similarities. A security guard protects people and property while a bodyguard works to protect an individual.
