Protecting your privacy is a necessary task when you are traveling in the US. Chinese billionaires may hire a security firm to guard them while they are on business. However, these bodyguards don’t have the knowledge or the skills to protect their client’s privacy.
Why Does Your Privacy Need to be Protected?
As a Chinese Billionaire, you may be at risk when traveling in the US. Letting the public know where you are at all times may be a bad idea. Consider someone who normally wouldn’t bother going through the effort of tracking you down. If you happen to post your whereabouts online, you can trigger their desire to come and pay you a visit.
Also, your private communications should stay private. Whether you are texting with a colleague or your wife, it’s important that all of your communications stay away from prying eyes. After all, you don’t want a business deal to go south because emails were leaked.
How World Protection Group Protects Your Privacy
Using Encrypted Communications
Encryption secures your data and protects sensitive information, like business communications. Your cell phone and email account are both incredibly crackable, but instead of avoiding the modern world, you can still communicate without the details of your name or locations.
When you hire an executive protection firm, they set up a protection detail by using fake names for both parties. Encrypted communications are then registered using fake names and addresses so that there is no connection to any real person.
By setting passcodes, using an encrypted phone, and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), you encrypt your browsing and internet activities while hiding the IP so that everything stays private and secure
In the modern age, almost everyone and their grandmother are on social media. You may have heard the horror stories about people posting that they’re on vacation and come home to find out that they were robbed. There’s a very simple explanation behind this; when you tell people where you are, you open yourself up to a world of potentially harmful opportunities. Staying private is the only true way to protect yourself.
Imagine being a celebrity. When they tell the entire world of Instagram where they are, thousands of people will flock to that location in hopes of getting a glimpse at that person. Others will go just to cause harm to the individual.
We’re not saying that you have to stop using social media altogether when you travel to the US, but posting your itinerary is never a good idea. When you do go on social media, try to post with the location off so that people with bad intentions cannot find you.
Encrypted communication also comes in handy when it comes to social media. When we set up these communications, the VPN is set to a different city or country than where you actually are. When apps are in use, no one will be able to track you in real-time.
If it’s possible, we recommend staying off social media while you are traveling in the US because you never know who is following you.
Working Behind the Scenes
Your executive protection firm will also take care of the details behind the scenes to ensure your peace of mind. When we work behind the scenes, our clients can go about business as usual without feeling intruded upon. These duties consist of:
The work executive protection agents do in advance is a significant key to the success of their protection. This work includes:
- Travel arrangements and being familiar with destination country security threats
It’s absolutely necessary for the protection team to know where and when you plan to travel, whether it’s to another city or down the street so that they can get an understanding of the area.
On the other side of this, agents must be familiar with security threats in the country to which you are traveling. If there’s current protests or a recent string of crime in the area, agents will be able to come up with the best plan of action.
- Route planning and back up plans
Wherever you plan to go, agents will plan the route so that they know the safest and most efficient way to get there. Likewise, if a situation occurs and you need to get out of there immediately, they will have back up plans in place.
- Communication methods
Setting up your encrypted communication is easy for your executive protection firm. They don’t require anything of you to get the first step towards your protection started.
- Understanding client preferences
Every client is different and will require a different approach to how we do customer service. Our agents are trained to be courteous and learn about our clients. If you have certain habits or customs, our agents will treat you with respect and learn about you as a person and business person.
- Medical emergency preparation
Our agents map the nearest hospitals to where you are at all times so that if a medical emergency occurs, we can get you to the nearest hospital. Similarly, if you have a health concern that requires a specialist, we can make sure that your paperwork is sent to the correct hospital in case of an emergency.
Protection detail is crucial to your safety. Our detail consists of having a professional executive protection agent, drivers, and a support team. We ensure that our agents speak the local language, understand the culture, and provide excellent security. The best planning is worthless if execution lacks the necessary professionalism.
