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.
