EPE 212: EP Program Performance Tracking & Measurement
Synopsis: Corporate EP programs must be able to demonstrate efficacy and ROI just as any other enterprise function. Establishing comprehensive performance and success metrics will often lead to greater program longevity and funding support, ensuring that program stakeholders other than the protectees - such as department heads, the Board of Directors, the CFO, etc. - can appreciate the scope and impact of protective operations. This Webinar will explore performance measurement challenges and opportunities for program leads and protection professionals elevating the discourse on functional accountability and value proposition.

EPE 215: In-House vs. Contracted – How to Maximize EP Vendors Effectiveness
Synopsis: In-House EP programs often rely on contracted resources, either for embedded roles or for ad-hoc support. Both program managers and contractors face numerous and unique challenges, but share a common goal to ensure consistent and effective services that integrate seamlessly with the program’s objectives and standards of practice. This Webinar is aimed at both detail leads and vendors or independent contractors with an interest in maximizing the ROI of contracted relationships and reducing the likelihood of friction or critical incidents whether working together on a half-day assignment, or establishing long-term relationship.

EPE 220: The PROTECT Model: Application for EP Operations Design & Execution
Synopsis: Within the course of one week, your protectee may travel across three continents, engage in dozens of official and personal activities, and confront the most diverse risks and circumstances. No single protective posture or protocol will fit each of the business demands, threats, and vulnerabilities of today’s senior executives, and those EP specialists who apply the one-fits-all model are destined to rapid sidelining. Rather, an adaptive, outcome-driven approach needs to be able to constantly adjust, adding value to varying circumstances and leveraging any available resource or opportunity – all of which comes at a considerable increase in complexity for planning and executing protective details. The PROTECT model is the only decision support framework designed specifically for the management of third-generation EP details, helping specialists and detail leaders conduct successful protective operations.
·Step-by-step exploration and examples of each of the PROTECT elements (Principal, Risks, Opportunities, etc.), applied to both overall program design and single protective details. (See EPevolved.com for additional information on the PROTECT framework.)
ERI/EPE 211: Introduction to Protective Intelligence 2.0
Synopsis: Gone are the days where Protective Intelligence was strictly synonymous with Threat Assessment. Today’s Executive Protection (EP) programs focus on much more complex and encompassing mission objectives, thwarting risks and threats occurring largely in the information and communication spheres. The volume and formats of information critical to mounting an effective EP operation, to be safeguarded on behalf of the protectee, and needed to achieve true situational awareness, demand highly effective information management strategies and protocols. This Webinar will introduce participants to the evolution of the function, and to the full spectrum of critical information and intelligence domains which sustain effective executive protection programs.
