Gavin de Becker & Associates (GDBA) is a dynamic security firm innovating threat assessment and public figure protection. Our mission aims to protect and enhance the lives of those we serve. From at-risk individuals and prominent families to corporations and universities, GDBA stands on the front line of the assessment, prediction, and management of violence.
GDBA advises public figure clients and protects them where they’re needed most – at their homes, offices, and during travel. Our associates manage the security operations from a dispatch command center to create a localized point for analyzing security challenges and disseminating information. Protectors are responsible for enhancing safety and security by remaining alert at all times. GDBA also plays a crucial role in adding comfort and convenience to the lives of those they serve.
Who You Are
Military, law enforcement, or security background is great, though not a requirement. We’re less interested in what you are than who you are. Our most successful protectors come from a variety of backgrounds and have succeeded because they are willing to learn, work hard, tell the truth, and flat out perform.
