As well as employing former military reservists and those who volunteer their time to the community, we advertise jobs directly to former armed forces personnel and their families and offer discounts on our services.
The covenant was introduced in 2000 and outlines the promise by the nation to ensure that the armed forces community is treated fairly.

Since the global pandemic in 2020, there has been a downward trend in how business travellers are now perceiving their safety when traveling the world with many now stating it is not safe at all.
- Only 20% of employees said they were happy to travel for work again.
- With 18% were concerned about their health and well-being whilst traveling now.
- 17% of business travellers feel less safe than they did before the pandemic.
With so much concern over traveling now, including concerns around geopolitical threats, one practical countermeasure for those businesses still requiring their employees to undertake essential travel would be to instruct a travel risk assessment. As well as providing experienced advice on mitigating risk, it also provides business travellers with reassurance.
Risk assessments will identify whether there is a need to implement travel security training for employees visiting unstable destinations.
Additionally, high-profile organisations may wish to consider enlisting specialist security staff to take professional care of their staff safety whilst traveling, either through a designated individual being on hand to manage their itinerary before and during the journey or through employing close protection to provide assurance against any threat of a volatile incidents.
Further consideration would be electronic options to keep locations visible 24/7 with a discrete tracking device, further increasing security. Electronic options can be either on personal items or vehicles, giving remote updates for the duration of the time away.

A risk assessment carries a crucial role in event planning – designed to highlight potential eventualities and able to guide the implementation of responsive security measures.
A risk assessment can be a legal requirement, but it should not only be considered a check box process but instead a valuable and influential asset to your events planning process.
An event security risk assessment brings with it vital data and subsequent recommendations on the fundamental safety and security of your event. Through an in-depth assessment process, a certified security provider will identify potential risks or threats and propose appropriate measures to mitigate them.
In preparation of any event, bringing together complementary resources such as fire safety, event security, emergency services, and with them their respective risk assessments allow the formulation of a coordinated and cohesive incident response, bringing a dynamic response to event planning, allowing each specialist resource to complement the other, whilst carrying out its individual duties.
The Protect Duty legislation, also known as Martyn’s Law, named after Martyn Hett, who died in the Manchester Arena Attack in May 2017. Brings with it the potential for an increase in assessments, planning, counter-terrorism measures, training, and staffing within the event security industry. Event security planning processes such as risk assessments will become even more critical to the safety and security of future events.

Most of our clients enjoy anonymity and very private lives away of the utmost privacy. However even the most innocent online presence can have the potential to be criminally targeted.
With online networks and communities continuing to grow. The appeal and draw of an online presence increases and once active can unwittingly draw the wrong kind of attention. This becomes a risk when there is a combination of; an individual in a prominent position, the exposure of their private life online, and the absence of online security awareness or security personnel. This opens the possibility of their offline life to attack from those who would seek to benefit from it.
Unfortunately, there have been several incidents over the last few years where prominent individuals have been targeted through opportunists online. These incidents have ranged from:
- Public figures targeting for their million dollar Jewellery whilst posting they are staying in a hotel.
- Footballers and their families’ homes are being targeted whilst they are playing away games and for their national teams.
- Musicians targeted at their homes when their address was shown when posting on Instagram
In these cases, and others, posting updates publicly online that feature high-value items, travel plans, the location of the home residence, and vulnerable family members has led to unwelcome repercussions. The internet offers a blanket of anonymity to those who look to expose and exploit opportunities for burglary, robbery, and even kidnapping.
Through the process of reviewing an individual client’s security, we may look to advise on limiting measures on their social network and online presence to establish the safest environment for them going forward. The measures we may advise they deploy include but are not limited to:
- Have private accounts or consider not having an account at all.
- Only posting information about your activities, locations, or events retrospectively.
- Turn off your location/geotags settings.
- Impress on your family and associates about the importance of privacy for their accounts too, associating with you may expose their accounts to be targeted.
