Learn more about threat levels

Threat Level 1 - Very Low

Very few prominent security concerns and an extremely low rate of violent crime. These issues rarely affect individuals or organizations.


Threat Level 2 - Low

Several low-level security issues, but they pose minimal risk to individuals and organizations. Violent crime occurs, but it is not common. Demonstrations may occur, but they present more of a risk to travel convenience than security. Terrorism could be a concern in this area, but the threat is general in nature.

Basic security precautions can mitigate a majority of these concerns.


Threat Level 3 - Medium

Incidents of violent crime, terrorism and/or extremist activity occur more frequently, but are still sporadic. Regional insurgencies or other ethnic or sectarian conflicts may sometimes affect this area, but its overall impact is limited in scope of geography. The nature of the regime may also represent a concern.

Individuals and organizations should practice heightened security measures.


Threat Level 4 - High

Incidents such as armed robbery, carjacking, civil unrest, terrorism and/or extremist activity can occur frequently. Political instability and ineffective governance may compound security and business concerns.

The likelihood of security issues physically impacting individuals and organizations is elevated. Organizations should take extra care to guard against threats to personnel and/or facilities in these locations.


Threat Level 5 - Very High

Violent crime, volatile situations of civil unrest and terrorist and/or extremist attacks are rampant. There may be armed conflict within or across national borders.

If travel or business is undertaken in these areas, extreme vigilance is required.

Low level - Secure Transportation

Secure transportation is gives you peace of mind. With Colt's security services, you can rest assured that your driver is awaiting your arrival and your driver is who they say they are.

Forty-eight hours prior to your pickup, your driver's name, cell phone number, vehicle type and plate number are provided to you. Often, a photograph of the driver is available and is also provided.

Your transportation arrangements are communicated to the handler in advance and again thirty minutes prior to your scheduled arrival, when your driver is required to be in position.

To ensure your safety and the high quality of its service, UnitedHealthcare Global Risk calls its drivers 30 minutes before every pickup.


Mid Level – Security-Trained Driver

There are some locations – threat level three and above – where a security trained driver is the base level of service for personal protection. In these medium- to high-risk areas – where violent crime, terrorism and extremist activity are likely threats – UnitedHealthcare Global Risk deems a Security-Trained Driver necessary.

Trained in tactical and evasive driving techniques, these drivers avoid and evade dangerous situations. By pre-planning routes, they avoid vulnerable choke points, traffic jams and high-crime areas. Their additional training ensures they are able to evade danger if encountered.


High Level – Executive Protection

Some places and situations around the world warrant additional security measures for executives, expatriates, crew members and travelers. In these high-risk situations – plagued with rampant violence, civil unrest and frequent terrorist or extremist attacks – an executive protection agent provides protection against assault, kidnapping, assassination and loss of confidential information.

They are able to do so through a combination of training that includes unarmed combat, tactical driving, first aid and firearms tactics. If allowable by local laws, the agent is also armed.
