Cultural and Heritage


Museums and cultural events bring with them special security and safety considerations including theft, damage, access control and logistic support. Working with museums and cultural events requires a multi-organisational approach and a great deal of collaboration and understanding.

Between 2011 and 2013 the Managing Director had overall responsibility for the security operations of the famous Manarat al Saadiyat and UAE Pavilion in Abu Dhabi. This included the technical, physical and operational practises used during major international exhibitions and the Abu Dhabi Art Fairs of 2011 and 2012. During this time he was also involved in reviewing and advising others about appropriate and proportionate security measures to be used by a number of international museums soon to be based in Abu Dhabi.

Due to the specialist nature of cultural venues (Museums, galleries etc.) and exhibitions not all security service providers have the necessary skills or experience of managing the risks associated with this scenarios. Trident Manor has both the experience and specialist knowledge to support cultural venues and events in managing the threats and risks that exist.

The Managing Director is one of a handful of retained consultants used by Arts Council England for the assessment levels of security that exist at venues within the UK wishing to, or housing national works of art. Members of the Trident Manor team sit on the ASIS International Cultural Properties Council, The Managing Director being the Vice-Chair.
