About Us

Most Protection Specialists understand that the cornerstone of an effective Executive Protection Program is the Security Assessment (AKA – The Advance).

The assignment, management and tracking of volunteers is an important component of real world events

The purpose of any exercise is to validate training, reveal planning strengths and weaknesses; uncover resource needs and shortfalls; improve coordination within your organization and community; clarify roles and responsibilities; and improve overall performance of all employees, managers, and the Crisis Management Team.

Training Courses

This course will highlight many of the key topics related to executive protection. The first portion of the course will be general “protective detail” topics applicable to both “security” and “support staff.” The afternoon portion of the course will focus more on how trained protection details work with staff members to augment their “one man details.”

This course will cover the full range of the basic principles of executive protection, focused on protecting the principle from harm. Students will primarily learn to complete all required skills individually as most portion details are “single member” details. However, ARMADA also includes segments on how to use
nontraditional security/protection detail members (staffers, volunteers, local law enforcement, etc.) to support the protection program.

Security awareness, preparedness and protection training specifically designed for senior executives and
family members.

Cincinnati Metro

Having not exercised our security plan for many years, there was great hesitation from our organization as we started this process. I can tell you that the professional service that we received from Armada, in particular from Lee Foster was the success of our mission. 

Mr.Foster was able to custom tailor a scenario that challenged our organization without disrupting our day to day operations, and provided us with solid feedback to improve upon as we look ahead. 

We will certainly use Armada again in the future, and I would highly recommend any initiative that Lee Foster is involved in.
