An Interview with Nathan Evans
Tell us about Pride Security Global
We are a high-end security provider servicing High Net Worth Individuals and families. Our clients require particular expertise in security at the highest level. We provide bodyguards and personal close protection, super yacht security, security abroad and holiday villas, Private parties and events. Although we can fulfil any security requirement – our primary focus is providing bespoke security solutions to private clients. This is evident with the operatives we provide, most of whom are either ex-military or ex-Metropolitan Police. All are fully qualified and highly experienced.
What specific services can you deliver in terms of security abroad?
Many of our clients spend time abroad, be it for work or pleasure – travel is part and parcel of their lifestyle. We provide operatives to secure residential property while clients are staying there on holiday, 24hrs a day if required. We select Royal Marines and Maritime Security Officers (MSO’s) to provide Maritime security on board yachts. They all have close protection licenses for ship to shore personal security, are accustomed to working at sea, the operations of a sea vessel and can readily assess potential threats of danger. We can also provide Close Protection Officers (CPO’s) who will travel to a destination, escorting clients from airports, as well as providing daily close protection whilst overseas.
How do you go about evaluating a client on the level of security assistance they might need?
Every client is different – and it’s essential to carry out a detailed risk assessment on a case by case basis. Risk can be dependent on a clients’ work environment, their background, their net worth in assets, as well as an evaluation of previous or current threats that they are aware of consideration for their itinerary, destination and location schedules also need to be taken into account, as these can affect the way a CPO can perform their duties. We would, for example, need to know the number of people needing protection. if it werea family and whether the group would include women and children. A full assessment allows us to select the appropriate team in terms of personnel, ratios, experience and gender.
What changes in the security services sector have you seen in recent times?
The security industry is constantly evolving. Licensing is now a necessity governed by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) in the UK. We have seen a sharp rise in the numberof ex-military seeking to work within the private sector of Close Protection. This provides a pool of highly experienced operatives working under threat of danger and assessing risks who have been required to attain the Close Protection qualification which gives them the soft skills needed to adapt to civilian protection. In more recent times, there has also been a growing demand for discreet protection. That said,in today’s society, certain high-profile individuals see it as fashionable to have personal security and a more obvious visual deterrent may be called for.
What advice would you give to a potential client looking to secure the services of a security agency?
Check the licensing requirements for security and body guards in your country of residence. You can then verify ifthat particular security company follows and adheres to the necessary legal requirements. Only ever use a company that provides fully licensed operatives, has liability insurance and can provide referral evidence. This not only ensures you will select someone licensed and experienced, but it also gives you an insight into the individual that may be working closely alongside you.
