Bad Actors Do Not Shelter In Place

It appears that shelter in place does not apply to bad actors. The pandemic has impacted millions of people, while bad actors, physical and virtual, are taking advantage of the cover provided by COVID-19 to plan and execute their illegal activities.

Threats to organizations and people continue even as most organizations are operating on reduced staffing levels and under a cloud of concern and uncertainty regarding their employees, customers, and partners.

As the global economy deteriorates because of the impact of COVID-19, there is also growing concern about illegal activities. Criminal behavior is projected to escalate from property crimes, to violence and potentially escalating to civil unrest. While we fervently hope that the pandemic subsides and that people do not resort to crimes against persons or property, we must be vigilant and prepared.

Bad actors don’t stay at home or take a holiday, and neither do we.

As an Essential Business, exempt from Shelter in Place, we are working with clients globally to support them in a variety of risk and security projects, including security planning, incident response and vulnerability assessments.

Employers of all types are struggling to keep pace with bad actorsoperations and growing financial pressure. Workplace violence remains a constant concern as the pandemic continues. TAL Global’s nucleus of remote Managing Directors orchestrates a global network of local resources that are task-organized based on client needs.

We can help your organization in a number of ways, particularly in this “new normal.”

We can work with you in emergency response planning to review, revise or even develop a new emergency response plan if needed.

While many locations are sheltered in place, there is still a need for Executive Protection and/or other physical agent presence.

TAL Global also has significant remote support capabilities in the physical and cyber worlds. We can support your investigative and response efforts in both of these domains.

We believe that in times like these, it is important to be as well prepared as possible. Organizations can be assured TAL Global can be counted on to continue to support their security and risk mitigation efforts, even during these unprecedented times.



As always, we value your feedback which helps us shape our perspective on recent events, security and the services we offer.

Stay safe,
