The recent surge of terror-related incidents in Europe is pushing demand for security. Europe’s schools, companies and religious institutions looking for trained, experienced high-end security personnel are turning to Israel to meet demands.
At a recent training session, private security contractors from the Israeli firm Tactical Zone carried out a simulation that involved guarding a client who was under attack. In the wake of recent extremist attacks in Europe, the scenario as one security industry expert predicts may play out more frequently in the future.
"Today the world is less innocent, people start to understand, the threats and the dangers, and start to demand security," said Robby Said, general manager of security firm "Israel Special Forces".
