Security Services

Which type of security services are right for you? Let's break down the options.

California is home to some of the world’s most successful and influential people.  These success stories, their companies, employees, and families have amassed great wealth— and individuals worldwide envy their success. Unfortunately, the wealth disparity in the state makes it a breeding ground for criminal behavior.  And that’s where private security services come in. We offer most security types, from residential guard services to event security services to corporate security services and security patrol services.

Whether you’re an A-list techpreneur, a well-paid employee, or an heir with assets to protect, we want you to feel safe walking around your neighborhood, relaxing at home, or doing your daily business. But, unfortunately, while material items can be insured and replaced, nothing can compensate for the loss of life or the psychological impact of being a victim of crime.

This page will overview the security services offered by Global Risk Solutions, Inc. in California and beyond.

Many special events in California bring multiple high-net-worth individuals together for work or play— this is a security risk in itself.  There are also potential security risks introduced with outside vendors such as catering contractors, valet, housekeeping, and entertainers— to name a few.

Corporate Security Services in the San Francisco Bay Area

Corporate Security Services

Corporate security services are as complex and nuanced as the companies themselves.

Executive Protection Services

Executive Security Services

CEOs and other members of the C-Suite are high-net-worth individuals and can also be famous to either a small or large degree. This combination of wealth, power, and public exposure make business executives a natural target for criminal behavior. When you consider the value that executives represent to their companies, it makes sense to make sure their lives and business operations are well-protected.

Some of our Executive Security Services include:

  • Personalized threat assessment for top executives
  • 24/7 on-site security guard services for homes and businesses
  • Security escort during business trips and meetings
  • Close protection services during family vacations
  • Security consulting for special events
  • Personal network and communications security

Executive Security can provide additional peace of mind for leadership to achieve greater productivity in stress-free environments either while working in the Bay Area or traveling (domestic and international security services available).

The Exceptional Case Study (Fein 1999) looked at 83 people who had attacked, or approached to attack, a prominent public figure in the USA between 1949 and 1996: 61% had a history of psychiatric illness, 43% a history of delusional ideas (88% had acted on them) and 11% experienced command hallucinations.

Building Security Services

Like any urban center, San Francisco is home to wall-to-wall buildings: multi-family dwellings, retail stores, shopping centers, and office buildings— to name a few. Each building and business has unique security challenges.  Many buildings choose to rely solely on the local police and fire department to protect their interests. Unfortunately, the nature of shared public resources means that the police do not actively stop criminal behavior but instead react to criminal events after the fact.  

Unlike public resources, private building security guard services proactively prevent criminal activity, react more quickly, and calls for public resources when further assistance is needed.

Some common reasons you might need security for your building:

  • Building threat assessments and strategic planning
  • Monitoring and limiting access to your building
  • 24/7 Building security patrols in and around the property
  • Visual deterrent for petty crimes like vandalism

A safer building means safer employees, residents, visitors, businesses, and customers. It can often pay for itself through positive economic impact.

In California, $2.8 BILLION of property is stolen every year.

Security Patrol Service

Security patrol services safeguard the exterior of private properties. These armed or unarmed security guard service agents maintain a vigilant presence on your property.  The presence of a security patrol is often enough to deter all but the most serious criminal activity and is well worth the investment.

For example, some of our security patrol service clients include large construction sites that need round-the-clock coverage, convention centers with ongoing events, and high-end parking structures. In addition, a 24/7 security presence ensures that your business interests are less likely to experience vandalism or petty theft after hours. 

Security patrol services are a very effective form of crime deterrence. It can add a layer of protection even when you’re closed for business. 

The most important aspect is that we do it with minimal interruption to business operations. Our agents are professional and courteous while maintaining their constant focus on security.

Preventative private policing in public spaces is causally linked to both reductions in prevalence of victims as well as higher counts of offenders detected. Security guards, who are dynamic actors of social control mechanism, deter offenders. They prevent crime but also increase detection of new crimes.

Threat Assessment Services

When you’re not sure what you’re up against, our threat assessment services will assess your business’ risk for different security risks.

Utilizing our proven in-house methodology, we determine the probability a threat will occur within the next 365 days— and we do this for a series of threat types. The goal is to correctly prioritize your assets and allocate the right resources to keep them secure.  

Our threat assessment is a great way to check in on existing security policies and then make any necessary updates. Our corporate security services threat assessment looks at:

  • Your personal or company assets and liabilities
  • Relevant statistical data and crime trends
  • Security measures already in place (e.g., a security patrol service or surveillance system)
  • Applicable insurance policies to see if we can help lower premiums


After conducting a threat assessment, we will provide you with a detailed report, including your personalized security profile.  

Depending on the initial threat assessment, we will recommend changes, providing you with a cost estimate for any additional security measures.
