Report from Dr. Sasa Vujko – Counter-terror professional expert of IBSSA
On the 26th May 2017 in the Sava Centre, Belgrade, Serbia a symposium on “Contemporary Terrorism and Corporate Security” was held by the Professional Association of the Security Sector (Strukovno Udruženje Sektora Bezbednosti – SUSB), a non-governmental organization. Representatives of the government sector, the private security sector and the academic community gathered and exchanged opinions and ideas during this symposium.
Welcoming the guests and presenting the agenda of the meeting, attendees were first addressed by Mr. Dejan MILUTINOVIĆ – President of SUSB, who pointed out that the Round Table was dedicated to the current topic and attempt to find a common response to the greatest threat of our time. He briefly introduced the current work of the Association.
Among the numerous speakers, and on behalf of IBSSA, Dr. Sasa VUJKO – Counter-terror professional expert of IBSSA in Serbia put emphasis in his speech on the importance of the organisational system of security of persons and facilities and the cooperation of different teams to fight against the present threat. The role of the intelligence sector is to come to information.
Terrorist act is difficult to predict, in fact no one can predict it except those, who are planning it. Legislature should better regulate the performance and operation of all services and their cooperation. Dr. Vujko concluded that the fight against terrorism requires the involvement of other sectors, especially the private security sector. Particular attention should be paid to education and training, as well as to the licensing of security guards for the fight against terrorism.

Executive Protection is perceived very exciting, not for the faint hearted, full of thrills and all the action one would expect from a Tom Cruise movie, but nothing could be further from the truth, since it is demanded of EPs to be at the job 120% (they’re there before the principal, and leave after he has left), long hours and very little shut-eye, did we mention a very high risk environment? EPs are all that stand between threats and their principal most of the time.
The lack of a standard in the industry has led to a very poor image of EPs, and the proliferation of Mikey Mouse (Rambo) companies that promise to have Super Men at the service of their protected, which turn out to be nothing more than a great show.
