Executive protection teams face threats from many sources including social media, telephone, email, and event in-person physical threats. The teams must determine which are valid threats that require action, and which are mere online rants or harassment that should be monitored, but are largely harmless. When the threat is concerning enough to cause teams to take action, a typical response consists of physical, procedural, and technical security protocols (guns, guards, gates). However, unless an individual has 24×7 executive protection (which is costly), these threats don’t often escalate while an executive protection team is present. Because of this, digital executive protection is critical.
