Services Available

Risk Assessment

We conduct a thorough risk assessment prior to signing any agreements with our clients. This helps us to identify potential threats and vulnerabilities. Our risk assessment evaluation involves many different check-points  including site visits, as needed,  reviewing the profile and background of the individual and assessing potential threats and risks.


Based on the risk assessment, we develop a comprehensive security plan that includes protective measures such as route planning, venue security, and personnel protection. The plan is tailored to meet the specific needs and requirements of the client.

Highly Trained Personnel

Executive protection personnel are highly trained professionals who possess specialized skills and expertise in personal protection, threat assessment, and emergency response. They undergo rigorous training in defensive driving, hand-to-hand combat, firearms, and emergency medical procedures.

High-Risk VIP Protection

The primary objective of highly trained VIP protection is to provide secure protection to the client. This involves a team of bodyguards who accompany the client at all times and ensure their safety in all situations, from escorting them to their location to securing private villas and providing family protection.


Advanced technologies, such as surveillance cameras, GPS tracking devices, and communication systems, are utilized to enhance client security. Using these techniques enables our security team to monitor the client’s movements and respond quickly to any potential threats.

Emergency Response

In case of an emergency, Defender One’s executive protection team is trained to respond quickly and effectively to mitigate any potential harm to the client. This includes medical emergencies, evacuation procedures, and crisis management.
