Security for high-net-worth individuals and celebrities is an entirely different ballgame compared to the standard security services.
It goes beyond protecting clients physically—it also means providing protection without affecting the clients’ lifestyle, providing confidentiality designed to keep their personal life private.
This luxury protection service is tailored for the needs of billionaires and celebrities. The 001 is definitely a first of its kind of service in the executive protection agency.
The Gold Standard of Executive Protection
With the level of service it offers, the 001 is certainly anything but par, which is necessary because its clients require more than your average security service.
WPG understands that there is a need for a system that can be specifically tailored for each client. High net-worth individuals have higher demands that standard security services would not be able to meet.
This is why 001 creates a customized and comprehensive security program that consists of the services that you will not find in other executive protection firms. These include Protective Intelligence, Threat Management, Social Media Assessment, Risk and Vulnerability Assessment, Background Checks, Privacy Services and several others.
It’s certainly a lot but totally necessary for protecting clients facing high-security risks and has multiple properties, estates, and offices around the globe.
How 001 Came to Be
001’s President and Founder, Kent Moyer, studied top luxury brands such as Ferrari, Chopard, Bvlgari, Pagani, and Porsche at Wharton Business School in Strategic Management of Luxury Businesses, SDA Bocconi School of Management in Strategic Management of Luxury Businesses and HEC Paris Business School. He discovered that a lot of high-net-worth individuals and celebrities are not receiving the kind of security that befits their lifestyle.
Many companies were hiring sub-par bodyguards who actually have no professional training in threat security or detection.
What’s worse is that these bodyguards may have other agendas other than protecting their clients.
Not only will this put the client’s physical safety at risk, but their personal lives and reputations are also put on the line as well.
Untrained bodyguards working for celebrities can be easily bought or bribed to sell their clients’ information to the public. A lot of these sub-par bodyguards engage in unprofessional behavior, such as becoming too close to the client in such a way that compromises their ability to provide protection.
This is the problem that Moyer wants to address with 001. The firm’s executive protection agents are trained to be friendly and respectful to their clients and at the same time avoid being close friends with them.
This is necessary to avoid the level of neutrality needed for an agent to do his job properly.
Confidentiality is just one of the stellar qualities of 001’s executive protection agents. This allows agents to protect their clients from physical harm while keeping the media out of way.
001’s security solutions are designed to prevent security and privacy breaches before it happens with the help of detailed security systems and sophisticated technology.
How 001 Protection Works
001 is composed of exceptional people providing exceptional service and protecting exceptional clients.
The firm makes use of a system that seamlessly combines distinguished protection and superior customer service that is expected of a luxury security service.
Moyer models his service after the Ritz-Carlton Exceptional Service Model. In addition, the firm’s agents are trained using The Ritz-Carlton Gold Standard of Service Operations.
This results in 001’s sophisticated customer service that not only protects a client physically but his lifestyle as well.
In order to deliver this kind of exceptional protection, 001 relies on its executive protection agents working on a standard that is higher than any other level of protection in the security industry.
The honing of these agents starts at the firm’s headquarters in Beverly Hills, where Moyer and his employees personally conduct a line-up each morning. From the headquarters, Moyer maintains close contact with 001’s other offices in New York, Mexico, and Shanghai.
During this time, inspirational quotes are shared and each employee is encouraged to do his best to reach his highest potential.
001 agents are top university graduates with military or law enforcement backgrounds. Before becoming part of this elite group, each prospective agent has to go through an extensive screening process that follows the practices of the U.S. Secret Service.
After selection, each agent goes through top tier training that involves areas such as Counter-Terrorist Driving, Explosive Device Detection, Ambush Recognition, Firearms and Special Tactics, Public Affairs and Media Control, Bomb Incident Management, Emergency First Aid (CPR/AED/EMT), Kidnap/Assassination Studies, Intelligence advanced work and International Experience.
On top of that, they are trained to maintain a polished and professional demeanor that will blend well with the world of high-net-worth individuals and celebrities.
Hiring these agents will obviously come at a cost, but high-net-worth individuals will not hesitate to pay for such a level of executive protection if it means putting a guarantee to their safety 24/7.
The 001 Security Protection Process
The firm’s security process can take six months to a year to complete because 001’s protection extends to a client’s home, families, business, offices, private jets, yachts, and travel plans.
It is indeed a lengthy process but this ensures that a client can feel comfortable and protected from safety issues and possible threats wherever he goes.
He can enjoy his lifestyle just like always with the assurance that whatever he does will not leak to the outside world. As a high net-worth individual, you deserve nothing less than the gold standard in executive protection.
Peace of mind is a priceless commodity and with the help of 001, you will get nothing less but the absolute best.
