Executive Protection Program Assessment

Many of Kroll’s clients have established executive protection programs currently safeguarding their senior executives.

Having led, worked with and consulted directly with many of the most robust and unique protection details in the world (both in government and private sector), Kroll’s executive protection leadership is uniquely positioned to provide independent, third-party and objective insight into the status of your executive protection program, juxtaposed against known and reasonably perceivable threat environments.

Kroll is particularly adept at assessing the current state of an executive protection program, offering guidance for the proper application of protective efforts and basing all findings and recommendations on real and articulable threat environment considerations that are unique to every program—thus ensuring time, money and resources are spent pragmatically.

At Kroll, we understand the intricacies and nuances that go into identifying threats, resourcing solutions and maintaining a program for continued success, all within a carefully considered budget.

The solutions we offer our clients are pragmatic, achievable and rooted in the best-practice tenants of executive protection. Often, it takes a fresh look at a program to ensure strategic level planning is in sync with tactical level implementation, and the two are mutually supportive.

Case Study – National Retail Threat Management and Executive Protection 

Kroll works closely with the executive committee of a nationwide grocery store chain that often receives threats—some benign and others highly actionable. In one instance, the CEO received a threatening phone call on their cell phone, their spouse received a similar call on their home phone and their adult child received a call on their home phone while home with a toddler-aged child. 

Kroll immediately dispatched executive protection personnel to meet the CEO and protect their home and their child’s home. In parallel, Kroll’s investigators gathered evidence, spoke with the local police, filed multiple police reports and canvassed the neighborhood, where the perpetrator was known to have been, for security camera footage that might be of value. Working with store personnel, executive team members, law enforcement and neighboring businesses, we were able to quickly safeguard those involved. We also put in place processes, should this happen again and brought closure to a family in distress. Kroll’s threat management experts were in constant contact with the client, guiding them through enterprise-wide decisions and implementing safeguards for a more robust security environment in all locations.
