Professional Risk Management Services

For clients requiring more than simple security, Illumico is pleased to offer personal, professional executive protection services with highly skilled CPO’s (Close Protection Operatives). Contracts range from the protection of world traveling CEO’s to on-site support for high-risk business terminations. Trained, experienced Personal Security Details assess threats and keep people safe.

Christo Bester and his executive skilled support team envisioned a professional risk management company that could provide all manner of services to clients in high-risk environments with the personal attention that has pervaded the private security community. Dedicated to the concept of "Full Spectrum Security", Illumico employs former military and law enforcement personnel with extensive backgrounds in Executive Protection. Illumico staff are college graduates and multi-lingual and possess decades of security and surveillance experience.
Illumico provides the highest quality security protection services available. Educated and approachable agents provide a secure and safe atmosphere for our clients. Illumico serves our clients with a diverse and highly trained group that is well seasoned with real world experience. Utilizing cutting edge technology and tactics, we are constantly training, updating, and adapting, working to ensure that Illumico breaks away from the stereotypical 'security guard / bodyguard' image while providing the utmost professional courtesy and safety to our clients.
Personal Security Detail (PSD) is no longer the privilege and domain of governments and the wealthy. PSD’s are also known as close protection, executive protection and VIP protection. The need for professional PSD’s and security services are becoming common at every level of the social and business strata.

Business executives, tourists, travelers, journalists, diplomats, engineers, geologists, court witnesses, government officials, celebrities, sports personalities and high-net-worth individuals are all increasingly becoming the target of physical and financial threats and risks. It’s hard to identify anywhere in the world that can be truly classified as "safe". Terrorism and violent crime are on the increase, with political and religious unrest now commonplace.

With cost effective personal protection and itinerary and logistical facilitation in place, Illumico will establish and maintain a safe environment in which you, the principal, can live and work free from the fear of crime and other threats. We promote client confidence by managing and minimizing the risk and threat exposure. When under the protection of Illumico’s highly trained professionals we have shown that terrorist and criminal elements are greatly discouraged from hostile intent towards an individual or their family and potential assailants will search for a much "softer target".

Our Personal Security Detail Team is the first line in a proactive defense to ensure that a threat never reaches you.  Our PSD Team knows and understands that a presenting a professional image is required of them 24/7.
