The member of the executive
protection agency has a massive responsibility on their shoulder to protect
clients all while giving them the authority to relish their lavish lifestyle.
Undoubtedly, this is a tremendous job that requires master training and
leveraging the best equipment to keep high-profile clients safe and sound from
all possible threats and harms.
However, there has been a surge in
the security agents flexing on social media sites gaining huge followers on
Insta and FB. These followers are awestruck by their dapper body shape and
masculine appearance. “Yet, What the esteemed clients forget to realize is that
this all is a façade. The purpose of security agents extends beyond physical
appearance and involves having the right conduct, to cater to the needs of the
client and never compromising on their mission that is protect their client the
first and foremost,” says Kent Moyer, CEO of the World Protection Group and its
Luxury Company 001. AS the CEO and Founder, Kent actively works with clients
and security personnel to incorporate a philosophy of proactive, preventative
security and attention to customer service. Moyer is a respected authority on
executive protection and threat management and has managed hundreds of threat
cases for high profile corporate and individual clients.
Kent Moyer reveals that in the past
few years, there have been cases reported that depicted comprised security and
safety from the agent’s end. “These cases have been increasing with the
increasing number of ‘fake’ security agents taking the internet by storms,
which makes it clear that this influencer culture and its impact on the
executive protection agencies is doing more good than harm,” says Kent Moyer.
“In fact, a true security agent
must keep social media at bay,” advises Kent Moyer. He explains that security
agents must not jump on the bandwagon and keep updating their status updates on
social media. Agents must not chase the spotlight and flaunt the lavish
lifestyle they experience while serving the clients on Instagram. This is even
against the ethics of the executive protection and is totally prohibited for
the privacy of the client is compromised, and the potential criminals can keep
an eye on the client through the agent’s social media handles. “There have been
numerous cases reported in which such unprofessional happening by the agent led
to threats like cyberattacks and abductions. The irony is where security agents
are supposed to prevent these occurrences, they become the reason why it
happened in the first place, and so it is an enormous matter of concern for the
security agencies,” he says.
Security has undoubtedly become the
biggest challenge all across the globe, with tech –advancements the threats
too, has advanced. So more and more high-profile individuals are looking for
the right security agency. Yet, they, too, end up becoming the victim of
influencer culture and opt for the people who have the greatest number of
followers. Therefore, Kent Moyer works tirelessly to ensure that he creates an
aware community of clientele, making them realize that these lethal desires to
become social media ‘stars’ by the security agent makes things worse for the
clientele, where private security lose it meaning and purpose.
Additionally, realizing this gap,
Kent Moyer came up with the idea of integrating sophisticated software that
regularly monitors the various social media site in the operations of The World
Protection Group and 001. “I know how dangerous this can be, and so with the
help of the software, we are capable of weeding out the culprit agents who are
indulged in gaining a fan following showcasing their façade of superstardom,”
Without a doubt, while focusing on filling the
gap holes, Kent Moyer has skyrocketed the Executive Protection industry and
created its standards to maintain the privacy of the clients. “After all, being
fake is not the job of a genuine security agent,” says Moyer.
