We understand that it may be of little value to protect high-profile executives if their families are left vulnerable and exposed to risk. In particular, we are cognizant of the following concerns:
- Studies conducted in the USA and Europe indicate that the loss of a close family member of a top executive can have a significant impact on the company, operationally and financially.
- Family members are often seen as ‘soft targets’. In some areas there appears to be an emerging trend for criminals to target the family members of executives for kidnapping, extortion or other criminal actions.
- Family members themselves often feel vulnerable and exposed in unfamiliar and potentially unsafe environments. This can have a negative effect on quality of family life and hence impact on satisfaction in the work environment.
Arcfyre works with a range of global companies to plan and implement cost-effective solutions to ensure the safety and security of executives’ family members. These services include assistance in selection of accommodation, home security assessments, school assessments, route planning, and the provision of professional but discrete protection services.
Our protective agents that are assigned to family protection duties have all received specific training in discrete protection and interaction with families, including child-minding programs.
