During her 20 years of frontline private client experience as a Personal and Executive Assistant, Kate Bright understood the benefit of robust security and planning for everyone, not just for high-net worth individuals and their families. With security and safety addressed across all aspects of people’s lives, a great positive impact is seen on everyday lifestyle and purpose.

Kate underwent SIA Close Protection Training in 2013, qualifying as an elite bodyguard and protection specialist.  This unique experience, coupled with Kate’s background working in high-profile Private and Family offices, enabled Kate to create UMBRA’S unique professional offering, providing security services that address practical requirements and lifestyle assurances.

UMBRA International Group provides clients with expert support across security, operational, administrative, logistical and future-proofing requirements.

Having realised the power of female Close Protection officers in providing ‘Invisible Security’ to a wide range of clients, UMBRA International Group also specialises in providing elite female Security Professionals for private clients with complex needs.

The UMBRA Academy programme officially launched in 2020 in partnership with Harlequins, Saracens Foundation and the Welsh Rugby Players Association.

It was originally created in 2018 to help streamline the veteran transition experience and provide training resources to help those coming out of the world of elite sport to move into the private security and private client sectors. Even with the effects of COVID-19, we have provided help, support, mentoring and funding pathways for men and women leaving professional rugby, and are looking at ways to involve other sports such as football, cricket and golf.

It was the successful pilot in 2018-19 demonstrating how the values from professional sport can transition to the private security industry that led to the founding of the official UMBRA Academy, specifically in funding Close Protection (Bodyguard) training.
