First, let’s understand the threat.
Part I. The Threat
Since 9/11, Al-Qaeda, ISIS and its subdivisions have been targeting U.S. Executives prominent in positions of corporate leadership and Wall Street. As of September 2015, the most recent issue of the magazine Inspire, which is an English language magazine, reported to be published by the organization Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, featured a prominent piece urging the assassination of U.S. Executives in the workplace and at more vulnerable locations.
As stated by author Park Dietz, M.D. Ph.D. and TAG Founder, in his online publication www.taginc.com, the magazine “urges Muslims to jihad, heaps praise and “honor” on radical Islamic terrorists…and provides its followers the kind of step-by-step instructions on how to make bombs and how to kill.”
Recent incidents in the news include: The Paris Bombing, Charlie Hebdo, the Boston Marathon Bombings and the shootings in San Bernardino, California. The current issue of Inspire shares a cover story on “Assassination Operations” that urges the assassination of business and financial leaders in the United States. Some excerpts from the article include:
– “Assassination operations, if studied and executed in a well organized
– “…it is necessary for us to concentrate on targeting prominent personalities in

much the security precaution he takes.”
That’s where 001 steps in.
Part II. How 001 Protects You From This Threat
I. Risk Vulnerability Assessment
Before Al-Qaeda, ISIS and its allies can identify your weak spot, 001 conducts a Risk Vulnerability Assessment, in order to identify, where an Executive is considered most vulnerable at their homes, schools, offices and facilities.
a. “All Threat/Hazard Vulnerability Assessment Tool”: 001 utilizes the best available and sophisticated assessment system for professionals. The system connects to Open Source Intelligence, where we receive over 55k live news feeds, following Department of Homeland and Security and FEMA protocols.
b. Security System: If the physical hardware used in the security system at your place of residence or office is outdated or not working properly, we will make every effort to update the system to the top standard and its maximum performance ability.
c. Intelligence: One of the many ways 001 identifies a threat before a disaster occurs. If you are a target, Al-Qaeda is charting your every step: where you work, where you live, where you shop and where you go for recreational activities. 001 gathers the intelligence and assesses the level of threat of these locations, performing Advances at all locations when protecting a Client.
II. Threat Management & Investigative Services
Before an attack occurs, there are often clues leading up to the event in question. Seemingly innocuous emails, strange occurrences, even direct threats can go undetected, if ignored and disregarded for a length of time. It’s our job at 001 to be on alert at all times, to investigate suspicious behavior and pursue any leads that may provide further Intelligence for our security team.
a. Early Detection: Before an event occurs, a stalker or a terrorist usually does his/her homework. Following the schedule of a target closely can lead to suspicious behavior on the part of a person, who is following a target, though regular face recognition may not be on the radar of most busy Executives. We collect the data for you and then evaluate and determine its severity of threat.
b. Suspicious Communication: Oftentimes, unknown senders of emails go directly to a Spam File or Folder, where the recipient may never check without reason. Our team of specialists will be sure to go through any Spam Files or Folders, at the discretion of the Client, to ensure there is not any suspicious and inappropriate, incoming communication.
c. Report Behavior: Reporting criminal behavior to authorities creates a trail that can prevent further action on a terrorist’s end. Whether it’s seeking a restraining order from a threatening individual or attempting to prevent a person access to a particular location, 001 makes every effort to protect you from attack and record any pertinent information.
In the event of an attack, our team of Executive Protection Agents provided by The World Protection Group (PPO License # 14509 & PI License #28524), are trained to protect The Client with the highest level of sophistication and intelligence.
a. Training: Most Executive Protection Agents have law enforcement or military experience, preferably with Special Forces. They must have graduated from accredited U.S. Executive Protection training academy. After an in-depth background check and rigorous hiring process, agents at 001, provided by The World Protection Group, go through an intensive training program.
Executive Protection: Protective Intelligence, Firearm Skill Development, Defensive Tactics, Kidnap/Assassination Studies, Protective Detail Operations, Protective Advance Survey, Surveillance Recognition, Documentation, Defensive Driving, Emergency First-Aid, Counter- surveillance, Bomb Incident Management, Command Post Operations, Detail Organization, Post Assignments, Radio Communication, Working the Protectee, Motorcades & Routes
b. An Advance: At a particular location, with notice, our Protection Team can provide a studied protective practice known as An Advance. Before a Client arrives at a specific destination, often days before arrival, our Team scouts the area, noting any possible hazards or threats along the way, fire exits, safe rooms, along with potential evacuation points and notable safe spots.
c. Physical Protection: The very last measure taken by 001 level Agents is actual combat. As described in the rigorous training program, our agents are prepared to react and defend against any attack, using a wide variety of defensive forces. Martial arts, weaponry and firearms are just a few tactical measures employed by Protection Agents in the event of an attack.
d. Protective Intelligence: 1) The Value of Information, 2) How Information is Collected, 3) How Information is Dispersed, and 4) Detail Intelligence Briefing.
As CEO and Founder of 001 and The World Protection Group Kent Moyer has stated:
“Our goal is to never stand and fight. The goal is to cover and evacuate. It’s about being low profile and blending in with the client. If you get in a fight, you’ve already failed. It is a race of time, speed and distance to get away from the threat.”
With violent occurrences rising at an alarming rate, Al-Qaeda & ISIS show no signs of stopping their vicious attacks on the American public, targeting High-Profile Individuals who are vulnerable to attack. U.S. Executives are at a higher risk than ever, as they are being specifically targeted in propagandist magazines like Inspire, which are funded and supported by Al-Qaeda & ISIS groups. Enlist the help of 001 to protect you against one of the deadliest terrorist movements ourworld has ever seen, before the enemy has a chance to strike.
