Protecting VIPs with discreet security solutions


Are you holding an event where VIPs are going to be present? If so, you need to take the appropriate steps to ensure their safety. Whether your VIP guests are celebrities, political figures or respected authorities in a particular area, there’s a chance that they’ll be targeted by criminals, rivals, political activists or even obsessive fans. Luckily, there are several measures you can take to ensure that they’re well-protected without ruining the event for them or your other attendees. In today’s blog, we’ll look at the best ways to protect VIPs without disrupting your event.

1. Install unobtrusive temporary fencing for VIPs

Perimeter fencing is the core of any well-organised security operation. It limits the number of access points that an area or event has and enables security personnel to monitor who is and isn’t in attendance. In short, security fencing is vital for keeping out unwanted guests who might want to harm your VIPs. What’s more, you don’t have to undermine the welcoming ambience of your event, as there are temporary fencing solutions available that are designed to look unobtrusive or even stylish.

2. Ensure your VIPs can be seen by CCTV cameras

CCTV is usually used to spot criminals and intruders. However, it can also be used to monitor high-profile individuals to ensure their safety discreetly. Ensure that you have full CCTV coverage in the areas that your VIPs will be visiting. Your security personnel can use the cameras to look for any threats that might be approaching them without interrupting your event.

3. Provide a separate entry/exit point in fencing for VIPs

It’s worth giving your most important guests a way of entering and leaving your event without coming into contact with unauthorised individuals. This limits the contact they have with potential threats and minimises their risk exposure.

Here at Zaun, we understand how important security is to you and your event. We can offer a wide range of temporary security fencing and CCTV cameras. If necessary, we can even provide lockable access points for your guests. Whatever you need to protect your VIPs and ensure the success of your event, you’ll find it on our product pages.
