Protective Intelligence and Executive Protection

Use protective intelligence to assure the security of employees, executives and organizational assets.

What is Protective Intelligence?

Protective intelligence is the proactive action a executive protection service or team takes to identify and mitigate threats to a protectee(s). The action you take as a result of the intelligence you have gathered enables you to implement sound risk reducing countermeasures to disrupt or deter a threat to your protectee(s).

The Most Common Layers of Protective Intelligence

  • Identifying threats and vulnerabilities with the situational 5Ws (who, what, where, why and how).
  • Assessing the dangerousness of each threat or vulnerability to each specific protectee or asset.
  • Maintaining situational awareness of the threat with persistent monitoring and analysis.
  • Validating and practicing incident response for likely scenarios that can impact the protectee.

DigitalStakeout Helps Security Professionals Spot Threats and Vulnerabilities

Detect and Act of Public Safety Threats in Real-time

Safety threats are sudden high-risk threats to life and property. Public safety activity or a site lock-down may be nearby where your employees are present and a person of interest is being engaged by law enforcement. In many cases, these events become rapidly shared on social media and can be detected with location-based social media. This intelligence provides organizations an opportunity to take proactive measures to communicate a shelter-in-place to reduce the immediate risk of harm.

Track the Dangerousness of Physical Threats

Unfortunately, social media is a gateway to deliver hate and threaten violence. Physical threats vary in degrees of danger. Dangerousness is the state in which individuals become likely to harm themselves or others, representing a threat to their own or other people’s safety. Organizations need to detect and assess the potential of digitally communicated threats becoming physical. Secondly, organizations need to understand what events may impact their employees’ physical security, locations, and events.

Detect and Respond to Operational Threats

In today’s 24×7 information cycles, organizations need to be aware of what’s impacting their operations and supply chain at all times. Failing to respond to an incident impacts the bottom line and deteriorates customer and stakeholder trust. In most cases, this incident information makes its way to social media before any other information source. Unintentional, technical, natural, and health hazards that can impact business operations need to be monitored and analyzed at all times.

Real-time Reputation and Sentiment Analysis

It takes years to build up a positive and trusted brand reputation. It can be destroyed with a few posts. Organizations should always watch for hate, offensive, and politically volatile language sourcing from employees, ambassadors, influencers, and official brand accounts. In today’s rapidly changing social environment, negative interactions and experiences can quickly turn into public calls for boycotts, protests, or legal action.

Reduce Cyber Exposure and Mitigate Cyber Threats

OSINT offers cyber threat actors a wealth of information to use in their nefarious acts. Oversharing information online enables cybercriminals to weaponize this information in social engineering and phishing campaigns. Bad actors create fake social media accounts or hijack hashtags to trick employees or customers into sharing confidential information. Disgruntled employees may intentionally leak confidential company information online. Hackers also advertise breached confidential data for monetary gain.
