The EP Go Bag

The term itself is almost self explanatory.  Many specialists have one and each of their Go Bags differ from on specialists to another.  The whole premise of a go bag can differ from person to person depending on what they feel is important to grab and GO at a moments notice.  From and EP perspective …

The misconception of a company and a regsitered company

There are countless individuals that have catchy names for themselves and their so-called security companies.  I wanted to address a subject that I put on the BPI Security YouTube channel yesterday.  There is a huge misunderstanding about having a company name.  I receive resumes and bios all the time from people with names like “Executive …
