The "WHY" Behind ESOC
Two Days of Thought-Provoking Discussions Presented by Leaders at the Forefront of Industry.
The Board of Executive Protection Professionals (BEPP) is committed to elevating the standards within the Executive Security Operations community. After years of attending security conferences, it became evident that professionals within our industry deserved a level of engagement and enrichment which was unavailable. This realization led to the inception of the Executive Security Operations Conference (ESOC), founded and hosted by the BEPP.
In contrast to conferences primarily driven by financial motives, the BEPP adopted a principled and rigorous approach to establishing the ESOC. The primary objective is to deliver an exceptional conference experience for attendees, offer maximum value to our sponsors, and uphold complete transparency regarding conference revenue and expenses. This is not about generating revenue.
In 2023, The BEPP successfully achieved this objective, and the ESOC not only exceeded expectations but also redefined the standards of excellence in our field.

About the ESOC
The ESOC is a conference where industry leaders, decision-makers, and executive protection professionals gather for two and a half days of enlightening educational sessions and relationship-building opportunities. Renowned industry experts will deliver thought-provoking presentations on pressing matters facing the field.
The conference encompasses two networking mixers, serving as valuable opportunities for professionals to engage in rich exchanges of ideas, fostering connections across diverse professional tiers, and enhancing individual and organizational visibility.
Additionally, attendees will benefit from receiving comprehensive presentation printouts, earning continuing education units (CEUs), and availing themselves to other valuable resources.
The Executive Security Operations Conference (ESOC) stands as the premier EP conference, drawing attendees from Fortune 50 companies and countries worldwide. It offers top-tier presenters, content and unparalleled networking opportunities.
