Dear IBSSA members, dear friends,

hereby we wish to inform you about the following urgent and important issue:

Prof. George Popper - President of IBSSA planned to attend the 1st Annual Congress of IBI (Intelligence Bureau Investigation) in July, but we have just noticed that the program of the 17th Annual European IBSSA Congress - which was held between 11-13 May 2012 in Zlaté Moravce, Slovakia - as well the speech and report of Prof. Popper were stolen and copied by IBI - using our materials as their own ones.

Both IBSSA materials can be found here:



and here is the IBI website, so you can check this FAKE activity:


Due to this action we have serious doubts about the credibility of IBI, so we highly warn all our members to be cautious!!!

Best regards,

IBSSA Headquarters

Report about the EPS Certification by IBSSA Mexico

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.
