Although most large airports are reasonably secure, many smaller airports serving primarily corporate clients have less resources to devote to airport security.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
The Incident Management Group, Inc. (IMG), a leading international security service, is announcing the development of a simple four-pronged approach to aviation security and executive protection. Many organizations, companies, and high-profile individuals have received credible threats from radical political groups, disgruntled employees, and mentally unstable individuals. Some defense contractors, have even been the target of terrorist plots. Many of these organizations have responded to these threats by reviewing their executive protection and corporate aviation security procedures. Particularly, these organizations are looking to improve their security on the ground at the airport as well as in the sky. As a result, international security service, IMG, is issuing a simple four-pronged approach to aviation security and executive protection.
“Although most large airports are reasonably secure, many smaller airports serving primarily corporate clients have less resources to devote to airport security,” said Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG. “Yet executive protection cannot end at the airport doors. Organizations and security professionals need to develop comprehensive corporate aviation security plans. We believe our simple four-pronged approach to corporate aviation security will prove valuable to many organizations and international security services.”

IMG's Four-Pronged Approach to Executive Protection and Corporate Aviation Security
The following is a simple and effective approach to increase the security of individuals on the ground at airports as well as in the skies.
As most international security services understand, the first step to defending against a threat is to identify it. Once a threat is detected, it can be studied and analyzed to uncover its capabilities and intentions. If the threat becomes severe enough, law enforcement can be called in to deal with the issue.
One of the first steps to sound executive protection and corporate aviation security is to deny potential threats information they could used to carry out a harmful act. In regards to air travel, there are steps organizations can take to ensure that their travel plans and flight routes are not publicly available.
Another vital step to increasing security at airports is to deter an attack in the first place. After all, many security professionals believe that unsophisticated attackers can be deterred by the simple presence of sturdy equipment, sound procedures, and competent personnel.
Defensive procedures are the final component of IMG’s corporate aviation security and executive protection strategy. Although efforts to detect, deny, and deter will neutralize most threats, organizations still need to be prepared to defend their personnel. This last component involves a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of physical security.
