Case Study: Close Protection
Matrix were introduced by a third party to a Finance Director of a Public Sector organisation in the UK whose organisation had been implicated in a large international criminal case with details being reported in the national press. The client believed that they were under physical and technical surveillance from criminal / rogue actors who believed that they had access to the fraudulent funds reported by the news media.
After initial discussions, the following tasks were put into place:
- Immediate reassurance to the client and positive actions were taken to secure their state of mind
- Specialist advice was given on physical security, anti-surveillance and profile
- Physical security was provided covertly to the client and their close family to ensure no physical contact by the actors
- Technical Surveillance Counter Measures were put in place.
This operation was initially planned for 2 weeks of activity, but continued for 6 months with specialist advice on different areas being provided as the situation for the client evolved.
The true value of this operation was in the speed of response provided, Matrix became a trusted advisor and confidant to the client with the ability to source and provide specialist advice as the situation changed.
