Introduction to A.T.I.S.



What exactly is A.T.I.S.? It’s an acronym which stands for the four main security requirements and measures that should be addressed when planning or attending any event where VIPs are in attendance and real need for personal protection is required. A.T.I.S. means:

A – Agenda – The program

T – Types of possible intruders

I – Interaction of the protected participants

S – Security measures to protect the event - bodyguards

If you follow these guidelines and steps in your security planning and event organisation, the outcome will be successful.

In Close Protection and bodyguarding there is only one dumb question… and that question is the one that you don’t ask and that you ultimately won’t have the answer for!

Have you ever been at an event as a guest, as part of a comprehensive security service to a VIP or actually providing bodyguarding services to some famous person and had asked yourself the question:

  • “What would I do if…?” And you didn’t have an answer?
