The ability for drones to cause massive to disruption to services, threaten public safety, affect personal privacy and cause significant financial consequences, has become increasingly clear over recent months with well publicised cases hitting the mainstream media. This is just the tip of the iceberg. With the use of drones increasing exponentially for leisure, commercial and more sinister purposes, the threat of drones is increasing at the same rate therefore increasing the need to protect your assets and privacy.
