Insite Security Opens Greenwich Office

Security Agency Opens Office to Focus on Security Needs of High Net Worth Individuals and Corporations

NEW YORK and GREENWICH, Conn., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Insite Security, a full-service security and risk management agency for corporations and high net worth individuals, has opened a new office in Greenwich, Conn. to meet the needs of the state's other potential clients

The Greenwich office, lead by William Whiteside, a former Secret Service Agent and Deputy U.S. Marshal, will focus on the unique needs of the Connecticut market, with a specific focus on providing services to private equity, hedge fund and high net worth clientele.

The Insite Security team consists of former Special Agents of the U.S. Secret Service and Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as command-level officers of the New York City Police and Fire Departments. Insite's staff includes the State Department's former lead terrorism analyst as well as physicians who are board-certified in emergency medicine.

"The Connecticut market has specific security needs that are different than other locales. Due to the concentration of financial services firms and high-profile families of means, communities like Greenwich, New Caanan, Cornwall and others have security requirements that are not being met," said Christopher Falkenberg, President and Founder of Insite Security. "We chose to open an office in Greenwich because of our expertise in high net worth family and property protection along with the work we have done with many financial services firms in the New York City metro area."

Mr. Falkenberg, a former Secret Service agent, and litigator with Davis, Polk & Wardwell, is considered one of the nation's leading security experts. He is routinely quoted in the national media on all issues surrounding security and threat preparedness. His firm has helped many individuals and corporations prepare for, avoid and manage high risk threats including the recent Swine Flu (H1N1) pandemic scare.

"Now more than ever we see companies and individuals taking an active role not just with their personal security, but also in their homes, offices, and even schools for their children," said Mr. Falkenberg. "At Insite, we have seen an increase in requests for our travel security services for overseas tourism and business travel. In Connecticut we expect that background investigations for domestic employees, as well as emergency preparedness planning to be in great demand."

While with the Secret Service, Mr. Falkenberg conducted numerous protective advances for the President, government officials both here and abroad and visiting dignitaries. He led investigations of major fraud cases and worked on successful prosecution and sentencing of the perpetrators. Among his awards and citations, he received the Treasury Department's Special Service Award and was recognized for heroism following the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. As a litigator, Mr. Falkenberg conducted corporate internal investigations and was involved in a wide variety of civil and criminal matters.

Insite Security clients include Interpublic Group, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Polo Ralph Lauren, Blue Mountain Capital, Centaraus Capital and many other corporations, private equity firms and hedge funds.

The company is headquartered in New York City and the new office is located in Greenwich Office Park.
