The Times Luxx - UMBRA International Group - March 2021 Image

“For so long, private security has been viewed as closed… That couldn’t be further from the truth.”

“I never set out to be a female bodyguard… [now] I’m like a security concierge, so the client has one contact for everything.”

“If you are in a scary situation, something’s gone wrong. It’s about looking after your boss. So if you’re fighting someone, who is looking after your client?”

Kate Bright talks to The Times Luxx on invisible protection and providing clients from all backgrounds with security teams led by former armed forces personnel, police officers and sports professionals.
