​ABOUT GUARDIAN

WHAT WE DO

In Guardian, we like to think of ourselves as business enablers. We offer a comprehensive list of services and solutions that support our clients in every step of the way. Our services include security risk management, risk advisory, training, operational support, and security response with the aim at supporting our clients’ pursuit abroad.

HOW WE WORK

We want to be close to our clients – whether they are at home or abroad. We recognise that understanding you and your mission is the key to meaningful security advice which is why building a relationship is crucial. To ensure proximity you will have a personal point of contact with one of our senior consultants. This allows for a flexible and smooth cooperation, where we act as your externalised security department.​

WHO WE ARE

We are composed by a diverse team of security analysts, emergency responders, and risk management specialists dedicated to prepare, see through, evaluate, and improve the security of your company’s business and employees abroad. Our team includes professionals with many years of experience in the field of security combining backgrounds in academia and the Danish Military.

WHO ARE OUR CUSTOMERS

We provide security services and solutions for business travel in every scope – ranging from individual freelancers to NGOs and multinational corporations with employees all over the world. Common for all our projects is that we adapt our solutions to suit the operational context of the client.​
