Contact WPG for Privacy and Confidentiality Before the Executive Protection Starts
Many clients make the same mistake: contacting us for executive protection after a threat has already been made. Those with celebrity status or high-net-worth individuals should always consider their privacy and confidentiality to prevent threats from being made in the first place.
What are Privacy and Confidentiality?
Privacy and confidentiality refer to keeping your information away from the public’s prying eyes. This will keep you safe from those who wish to do you harm. Consider this: You’re a celebrity who posts their address somewhere online, or paparazzi get your address and post it.
While you’ll get lots of attention from the paparazzi, you’ll also attract some with bad intentions who may want to hurt you for various reasons. Even if you don’t have any known enemies, being a high-net-worth individual puts you in a spotlight that makes you a target of malicious and dangerous people and danger.
As you may know, Chris Brown recently had a yard sale where he sold high-end items for a more affordable price. While this may seem like a great idea, he told millions of people where he lived.
When people know where you live, they become an immediate target. Even the most well-liked celebrities have enemies out there who disagree with their political stance, opinions, and more. Someone doesn’t need a good reason to attack you or rob you, they need to be willing to commit these crimes. Many times we have read news stories where a bad guy shows up at the celebrity’s home and arrested.
Privacy and Confidentiality Are a Luxury
When you’re a celebrity, you value your privacy even more than the rest of us. When you’re not getting hounded by the paparazzi, your dinner dates are getting ruined by over-eager fans.
You probably enjoy the few nights you spend at home alone and away from the public. Your privacy should be placed as a high value, mainly because everyone will be trying to get a piece of you.
How Can WPG Help?
We can help you create the luxury of privacy and confidentiality, which will also keep you safe. When it comes to your protection, we believe that privacy and confidentiality are critical, which is why they are the first steps we take with new clients.
Here’s how it works:
Assess Your Personal Information Online Exposure
We know that when you’re famous, it can be challenging to keep your personal information away from the public. Afterall, paparazzi may follow you home and take pictures of your house.
However, you don’t want the entire world knowing where you live because that opens you up to a world of risk. Your address should never appear online. If it’s already online, we can help you take it off or make it look as if you don’t live there anymore. If you’re planning on moving, we can make sure your new address doesn’t appear anywhere online.
Removing Personal Information from Public Databases
Public databases hold all of your personal information, including name, phone number, and address. Unfortunately, this can put you in danger. If you’ve found a way to keep your address out of these databases, you’re on the right track.
However, you’ll also need to make sure no one has access to your phone. In the digital world, celebrities are always under the attack of hackers that can break into your phone from remote areas and share your personal information, including photos, texts, and more.
Create Anonymous Mail Addresses, Email Addresses, and Telephone Numbers
When you have anonymous addresses and phone numbers, you can remain anonymous. This is one of the keys to keeping hackers and intruders away from you plus mitigate the risk of an attack. At the very least, you deserve your privacy as a fundamental human right. However, making these things anonymous can also save your life.
Provide disinformation on you
In order to remain completely anonymous and maintain your privacy and confidentiality, we may need to provide disinformation for you to use. This could be in the form of creating a fake address for you. Create a fake phone number and a fake name, order something with the fake credit card, and send it to your real address. This creates disinformation, and now people think the fake name person lives at your real address.
It would be best if you never got any mail at your real address. This will keep your real information out of databases and out of the hands of the public.
Set Up Anonymous Phones and Encrypted Communication
Encrypted communication allows you to secure data and protect your sensitive information. As you may know, your cell phone and email account are crackable. Nothing is 100% secure, especially on the internet, unless you use encrypted communication.
With encrypted communication, you can still communicate with your cell phone and via the internet, but without details of your name and location. The encrypted connection provides you with privacy in the following ways:
Unknown Location: When we set up your encrypted communication, the VPN is set to a different city or location. When apps are in use, they cannot track you or find you in real-time.
Protection and Privacy: Encrypted communication protects your personal information from getting out. It will help to ensure your anonymity and reduce the chances for criminals to use your communications against you. Use fake names ad emails on that phone. When you purchase the phone, it should have no connection to you.
These are just a few examples of what we can do to help you retain your privacy. We also enjoy teaching our clients how to continue to remain anonymous. We’ll train you so that your future habits promote complete confidentiality. We create an anonymous lifestyle for our clients. Privacy and confidentiality is one of the only luxury famous people do not have.
