During the recent period, the negative trend of attacks against the so-called Soft Targets has begun to spread across the world. The Soft Targets are linked with violent crimes or terrorist attacks and are objects, areas in which are people or individuals whose security is not sufficiently. This dangerous situation forces us to constantly think about the possibilities of its correction, specifically about prevention of attacks and the direct protection of soft targets themselves. The aim of this article is to get acquainted about the protection (or even defence) of individuals in dangerous areas afflicted by terrorism or high crime rate and brings us closer to procedures and principles of ICESERVE24 as a provider of top-level personal protection services.
