In light of royal security breach, the CEO of the World Protection Group advises more select security.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) December 26, 2012
World Protection Group CEO Kent Moyer was recently interviewed on NBC’s Extra in relation to the royal security breach involving Duchess Kate Middleton that occurred on Tuesday December 4. With the occurrence of these events, Mr. Moyer advised that additional VIP security measures such as counter surveillance teams and low-profile exits from public locations, can help protect high-profile individuals.
On Monday, December 3th, Duchess Kate Middleton, wife of Prince William was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London with acute morning sickness. The media was made aware then that Kate was pregnant. In the early hours of Tuesday morning, December 4th, two radio DJs from the Australian radio station 2Day FM placed a prank call to the hospital posing as the Queen and prince. They were connected to with a member of the nursing staff working on Kate’s floor that gave them confidential information regarding Kate’s condition over the telephone.
What started out as a joke has been labeled as a serious breach of security by UK officials. Those following the story are surprised and alarmed about how easily the impersonators were able to gain access to personal confidential medical information about a member of the royal family. For executives and high profile individuals, these security breaches are alarming. The hospital has come under heavy fire for its privacy standards since the incident earlier this week. The radio station has issued a formal apology, stating that the prank call was made “with the best intentions” and apologizing for “any inconvenience” caused by the stunt.
While covering the story, NBC's Extra asked World Protection Group CEO to appear as a guest to appear in the segment related to their coverage of the security breach. World Protection Group is a worldwide security company that specializes in executive protection, residential and event protection, and global protective intelligence. Mr. Moyer commented on the security breach, explaining that the couple would continue to go about their daily lives but would likely receive an increased level of security in the short run. He commented that such security measures might include “counter surveillance” teams to identify paparazzi and members of the media as well as “low-profile exits.”
