There are thousands of security and consulting firms to choose from; they all say they are the best, unique or different – typically they are mostly the same. What is unique is; you, your family, home, business or mission and your needs.  We consider protection an art form that demands a master’s level understanding from the simple to the complex.  Protection may include many areas such as; threats to people, property, intellectual property, reputation, compliance risk, business continuity, cybersecurity and others.  Often, these risks are overlapping and require an asymmetric approach to effectively manage or eliminate.

You will speak with our Founder Steven Collins, a retired Navy SEAL, businessman and Master Craftsman of your protection needs, he will listen to and assess your needs and personally create a special kind of support for you and your family, or provide specialized support recommendations for commercial and government clients.
