Our Story

ETS was founded in America in 2012 by Mark, a former British Government Covert Counter-terrorist Officer who relocated to the USA with his family. His low-profile, intelligence-led approach to executive protection, corporate risk, and special event security resonated with a number of high-profile clients.

After a few years of developing the company and establishing its reputation as a market leader, Mark persuaded some of his former teammates within Her Majesty’s Government (HMG) transitioning out of their roles to join the company, and they now form the core of ETS.

The ETS group has developed an impressive global network and complemented it with a team focused on responsiveness and agility. Our services are complemented by a strong ethos of integrity, client privacy, and ethical business practices with all stakeholders, including partners and suppliers. We pride ourselves on having forged a cohesive, professional team that shares the same work ethic and values, and can interoperate with stakeholders across all cultures, industries, and professions.

For over 10 years ETS has been operating to support an array of clients helping them navigate risk, working to find solutions, and protect their most valued assets around the globe. We maintain our operational tempo with a small team of professionals that Mark has known through his previous career with HMG, or met personally through the many and varied operations the company has conducted.

How can we help you?

We need professional VIP Protection and Secure Transport in foreign countries. What are our options?2022-04-27T06:44:35-04:00

At ETS we provide clients with a user-friendly, global and standardized personal security service. Always focusing on simplification we offer a simple, transparent Transfer rate and a Day rate wherever we operate. Across the globe we have English speaking drivers, armored and non-armored vehicles, security drivers, and VIP protection personnel. All prices are transparent and provided clearly and are always all-inclusive.

How do I know what level of security we need in various locations to be commensurate with risk?2022-04-27T06:45:36-04:00

The sheer number of variables relevant to personal security and risk management including political, criminal, socio-economic, special events, reason for travel, and dates of travel etc. All dictate the necessity to speak with a team that understand where you are going and can assess your itinerary/operations and provide accurate advice.  Our team is on the phone, email, and LiveChat. Please contact us and we will work to advise you accordingly.

If you conduct business or operate in a challenging environment our gap analysis and risk assessments have helped shape numerous client operations globally.

As a public facing figure/company we are extremely cognizant of brand and reputation management. How can ETS Risk Management’s security help us avoid the ‘typical bodyguard’ and security pitfalls?2022-04-27T06:47:41-04:00

ETS only utilize highly experienced ‘tier-one’ operators. Our unique experience facilitating secure travel and lifestyle in all environments without fanfare is an understated asset. VIPs chaperoned by world-class tier one operators can safely and efficiently move globally while remaining under the radar. Low profile, discreet and respectful, the former Special Forces operator is a proven and powerful enabler. A conscientious operator able to read the environment and quietly get the job done is an invaluable part of a VIP’s team.

As seen repeatedly in the celebrity and corporate worlds, unprofessional personal security can inflict long-lasting reputational harm, or worse. There are multiple untold horror stories of VIP security gone wrong including personal security operators and drivers getting lost on the way to meetings, driving through high-risk environments, and having their VIPs attacked. There are examples of personal security negligently discharging firearms, crashing vehicles, and losing track of their protectee. Even less extreme failures have a serious negative impact on VIP effectiveness, brand reputation, and personal image. Far too often those most in need of high-level security make the mistake of saving on cost in favor of ‘large, imposing bodyguards’ yet rarely consider if these persons have the training and ability to react.

My business is undertaking operations in a challenging environment. How can you help us mitigate and manage risk?2022-04-27T06:48:32-04:00

The first, key stage is to conduct a Security Vulnerability Risk Assessment (SVRA). This technique contrasts the existing risk management framework and processes with the desired risk management framework and processes. Our understanding of best practice procedure, coupled with our focus on client requirements and desired processes will allow us to produce a list of recommendations and ‘actions’ that need to be made in order to bridge the gap between the current and desired risk management system. In close consultation with the client, ETS will outline the recommended prioritization for the development and updating of any risk management system. Our aim is to provide recommendations and services to strengthen a client’s operational program at every juncture.

This process ensures our client a more informed and balanced decision making capability regarding operational security concerns. This is far more than a simple security risk assessment checklist — this is a comprehensive and customized assessment based upon a client’s unique specifications and circumstances.

We are planning a special event, what do we need to consider in relation to comprehensive event security?2022-04-27T06:49:13-04:00

For special event security to be its most effective it must be integrated throughout every component, and have advisors brought in at the very earliest stages of event planning. This forges the relationships between all stakeholders and security, allows for questions to be asked early that may affect the design and detail of the event, and helps develop a culture and understanding of how security is pervasive throughout every level. Whether floor layout design, access control, asset protection, credentialing, green rooms, stage design, transportation, fire safety, or VIP & Law enforcement liaison and much more.

Event Security is not about standing around ready to react if something goes wrong. That is reactive. In-fact it needs to be the opposite, security pro-actively identifying threats and the risk of those threats to help plan to avoid the danger. This is not just the physical aspect of protecting people and assets from serious threats such as terrorism, but involves reputation and brand protection as well as protection from litigation. There are multiple examples of events hitting the media spotlight for all the wrong reasons, including unprofessional security being aggressive or mishandling situations.

Why do I need to conduct background checks, due diligence, or social media profiling to manage risk of my business or organization?2022-04-27T06:50:09-04:00

Whether legally obligated in a merger or acquisition, or voluntarily sought to protect reputation, or to reduce corporate and personal liability, comprehensive intelligence gathering is critical to a well-established process of background inquiry. Open-source intelligence (OSINT) varies from country to country but generally includes criminal, civil, and open-source records. Social media analysis and Dark web searches also help organizations learn more about potential persons or entities of interest.
