The year 2020 was a rollercoaster for everyone, and that continued into 2021. Among other things, we witnessed how a gathering that was originally meant to be peaceful can turn into a violent riot in moments. Violence erupted in cities across the country in 2020 and is still ongoing in at least one major U.S.
At Gladius International, we take your security seriously. That’s why we offer high-end physical security services and security consulting as well as all levels of firearms training. Our experts know how to mitigate risk and how to best protect you and your property against a vast number of potential threats.
Dogs have been used by humans to help perform necessary tasks for thousands of years. These special animals have helped us perform an almost endless number of essential jobs. People have trained dogs to pull carts, help rescue avalanche victims, safeguard property, protect children and detect the odor of potentially dangerous substances.
Uber completely changed the way many of us commute. At the simple touch of a button on your smartphone, you can schedule a car to take you to your destination within minutes. However, having a stranger driving you around can have its dangers. In 2018, the rideshare company disclosed that 3,045 sexual assaults and nine murders occurred during Uber rides that year. Though this is just a small percentage out of billions of yearly Uber rides, it’s always vital to take precautions.
When caught in an unexpected fight-or-flight situation, knowing how to defend yourself can make all the difference. Most individuals who attempt to engage in situations of conflict are typically looking for an easy outcome. Once the target becomes too much trouble, the odds of the attacker to disengage and flee increase dramatically. These three self-defense tips will not only allow you to be a harder target from any physical altercation but also give you confidence in knowing you will be able to defend yourself in a vulnerable situation.
The world is filled with risks, no matter who you are or what profession you are in, but certain situations can be increasingly dangerous for high-profile individuals such as corporate executives, VIPs, politicians, and celebrities. Unforeseen situations come in many shapes and sizes — like an obsessed fan or disgruntled former employee for example — can develop an incident that makes one wish they had hired the proper security services prior, to protect the individuals at the time, or deter the situation entirely.
