Our objective is to help people escape the obsolete and dangerous reactive security paradigm and establish a proactive security solution that protects individuals and creates a force multiplier for business security. Jim Johnson teaches and applies concepts and techniques learned and practiced for 45 years as a Navy SEAL, Army Special Forces officer and private security contractor.

Our approach builds layers of plans, preparation, awareness and action that put individuals and businesses in charge of their security.
