We had the honor of participating in the 2018 IPSB Close Protection Conference in Las Vegas, NV along side 370 Executive/Close protection agents. In attendance were members from Microsoft, Netflix, NFL, Entertainment Film Industry as well as legal counsel & Law Enforcement.

To provide knowledge to those new agents, topics covered were- Protection at Large Sporting Events, Developing Practitioners, International Operations, Global Intelligence, Celebrity Practitioners, Lessons Learned & International Child Rescue.
All of these discussions were spearheaded by CSO & Solo practitioners that have been involved with the industry for years, these knowledgeable representatives shared valuable skills, details and techniques with all companies present.
