BPI Security features Michael Brown – “The Industry’s Rising Star”

You’d be hard pressed to find someone more critical of the industry over the last five+ (5) years. Let me rephrase that, you’d be hard pressed to find someone more VOCAL and adamant about the state of the industry over the last five+ years than me.

When what’s behind your name really matters.

Over the last 4+ years I have been on a personal journey to get this industry back to where it was when I entered it in the 90’s.  Sometimes at a cost of being personally attacked on why I did not want to leave it alone.  Why should I contradict the lost professionalism, depleted morality …

35 Minutes with Tanto could save your life!

  I rarely if ever just post a video with little to no context to it.  But I wanted to post this video of Kris “Tanto” Paronto, from “13 Hours: The Benghazi Story” as he gives an in-depth personal perspective of what he personally went through during that event. I am posting this because, as I …

You are 20/20 but still no VISION……

As we come to the close of this 2015 year I have personally observed the success of a select few specialists in the industry.  On the other hand I have watched others still trying to figure out their way.  I am going to close the 2015 blog submission on some advice that is NOT executive protection …

Is the Campaign trail too much………

A couple of weeks ago Republican candidate Donald Trump was giving a press conference in Dubuque, Iowa when he and Univision anchor and reporter, Jose Ramos went back and forth on the topic of immigration.  Trump gave the signal for his long-time bodyguard to escort Mr. Ramos out of the press conference. Just this past …

A specialist’s introspection prior to working on THE SHIFT

Over the past couple of years I have allowed specialists to give their first-hand experience with working with and for me particularly when they get the opportunity to experience a “First” in their careers.  I met Jimmy Menzoian in January 2013 during the First annual ICON Summit.  Since that time we had been communicating regarding …

Fed Up with xEdeF – “When you absolutely want your package un-delivered”

broken_arrow_logo2

In our industry we often find that using delivery services is far more convenient than checking tons of boxes, bags and even our favorite – The Pelican Case.  These delivery services compete against each other promising to get you “stuff” where it needs to be when it needs to be there.  Here is my second occurrence …

RED BEHAVIOR? ……What you are missing – LITERALLY MISSING

There are far too many examples and ways to recognize what we term as “Red Behavior” or pre-incident behaviors that can help in identifying assailants before they intend to do harm against your principal.  There are just as many fancy names that go along with this process like the “OODA Loop [observe, orient, decide, act]” …
