Our Consultants and Instructors

Corporate Protection Technologies manages a collective of independent security consultants and experts in order to provide the best solutions to its clients, globally.  We know "one size doesn't fit all" when it comes to developing a security solution that works specifically for you and your family, or for your company, so we bring experts to the table as your partners to find that perfect fit. 

Let's Do This!

@ the Office



Go beyond the "run, hide and fight" scenario and let your employees defend themselves.  

A work environment should not hinder its employees from defending themselves against an intruding random mass murderer.

@ Home & Play



No one likes being blind-sided.  

Take action now and gain the upper hand by learning how to defend yourself at home, in your vehicle and at work.

@ Leadership



Enhance your operational effectiveness of resilient functions, such as security operations, emergency & crisis management, mass communication, disaster recovery, business continuity, health and life safety.

OUR CORPORATE MISSION: Create cost-efficient, simplistic and effective protection programs
