Close protection: is it still necessary?

Close protection: is it still necessary?

You may think that with today’s advances in technology, protecting yourself from danger would be a rather straight forward matter. Developments in CCTV and counter-surveillance techniques have afforded us greater means with which to monitor rapidly changing situations effectively. The reality however is somewhat different, as those who potentially mean us harm have found ever more brutal techniques to circumvent today’s security measures.
A chilling example of this can be found in recent headlines which have focused on the renewed conflict in Iraq as insurgents continue to forcefully seize control of northern villages. With ISAF and British forces looking to withdraw from neighbouring Afghanistan completely by the end of 2014 and the United States long since ceasing it’s combat role within Iraq (as of 2011), many politicians and senior military figures fear that the region could relapse to a pre 2003 state. As foreign dignitaries and western politicians rally to ensure the region remains stable, insurgents continue to specifically target those officials that seek to bring an end to the violence.
