History

Inter-Con is the world’s leading provider of premier security services.

Inter-Con Security was founded in 1973 by U.S. Army Veteran and retired LAPD Detective Lt. Enrique “Hank” and, his wife, Bertha Hernandez. From their kitchen table, the two invested their life savings into Inter-Con, with the ambition of building a new type of security company. Inter-Con would distinguish itself by providing security services to clients whose threat profiles exceeded the capabilities of traditional “guarding” companies.

Now in its third generation of Hernandez-family leadership, Inter-Con employs a highly diverse workforce of over 30,000 employees across North and South America, Africa, and Europe, with sustained operational growth. Inter-Con provides tailored security services to Fortune 500 companies; public utilities; ultra-high net worth individuals; non-profit organizations; as well as federal, state, and local governments around the world. 

We attribute our steady expansion to Inter-Con’s value of long-term partnerships over short-term profits, a focus enabled by our privately-held ownership. Our stable foundation, constructed over 50 years of successful security program design and implementation, allows us to remain true to our core tenets and to support those of our clients. As a family-owned and operated business, Inter-Con is unwaveringly committed to providing best-in-class quality of service, in line with our founding principles.
