This double or triple hatting can take a considerable strain on the operative but delivers added service value. Of course, the EPA fulfilling these service roles has the advantage of knowing what the next move should be and what to expect throughout any given day but it can distract from the primary role of security. The reason why the security sector charges a daily rate per agent hired is because there is an extraordinary amount of activity involved in mobilizing a single agent for any event security mission that the client does not see. Those activities include, but are not limited to sourcing and selecting the appropriate agent for the mission, intelligence and logistical preparations and execution, and mission planning and execution. That means, whether a client requests coverage for only an hour or twelve hours during a single duty day, the cost to hire and mobilize that agent is the full daily rate. Executive protection is a form of personal security service that can be either overt, covert, or a combination of the two depending on the circumstances and objective.
Executive protection is not just protection from physical harm, but protection from any potentially adverse acts or results that involve the executive. When the overseas event is attended also by a higher ranking person, such as the President of the United States, leadership of the protection program will be provided by the organization of the higher ranking person. In such an event, the protective force of the company will be subordinated to the leader of protection for the senior person.

It is a criminal offence for operatives not to have a valid front-line close protection licence. The situation in the United States is very different because executive protection services are regulated at the state level. Regulations vary but most states require a licence, insurance and training. Firearms regulations differ across the country but a private executive protection agent bearing arms will generally need a separate concealed carry permit. All of Hyperion’s executive protection agents and security advisors are seasoned protective security operators who possess prior military training and direct combat experience.
