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.

Reducing the Risks Posed by Protesters to Your Special Event

Professional Security reducing risk posed by protesters at event

You may think your special event won't attract protests. In this increasingly political age, though, more people are willing to physically gather to voice their thoughts about people, nonprofit organizations and special interest groups that are even just loosely connected to a political cause. In fact, a Washington Post poll found that 1 in 5 Americans have participated in some sort of political rally or protest since 2016.

Reducing Risks From Protestors

Your special event doesn't even have to be promoting a controversial cause; perhaps one of your guests or attendees has attracted attention on a recent issue. That could be enough to draw protesters. (Just one example from this year: Crowds gathered outside an international auto show's charity preview event to protest one automaker's decision to close local plants.) In today's political climate, it's clear that you simply can't take a chance with security at your upcoming event.
