Personal Protection (Close Protection) has been a necessary part of business for a long time. The need to protect the business, its brand reputation, its people, its profits and its financial secrets has always been the main objective. Every business or individual, will be protected by some type of protective security measures, with most measures being so normal that they are a simple part of our everyday lives.
Another feature of Personal Protection is that it needs to be ever-changing, to adapt to evolving threats, including business needs and the ever-changing world. Personal Protection must continue to modernise in order to maintain it’s value and effectiveness. Having already qualified as an Licensed Close Protection Operative, this programme is an excellent way to be a Modern Personal Protection Professional for business and provides a perfect pathway to further Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
