A major, multi-day event involving the gathering of world leaders produced threats of potentially violent and destructive protestor activity. A global financial institution with a heavy presence in the host city was concerned with protecting its employees, clients, and physical assets while continuing normal business operations.
Pinkerton utilized its VigilanceTM Network of human intelligence sources, proprietary technology, and expert personnel to provide highly specific, near real-time notifications via email and SMS text to a select distribution list of client company executives and security team members. The client shared Pinkerton’s intelligence information with local law enforcement, allowing them to organize ahead of protester activity.
The solution effectively protected the institution’s assets resulting in neither financial loss nor injury to its employees or clients.
