The Washington Post, LA Times, Chicago Tribune and Time Magazine have come to UK based Pilgrims Group, to secure and train their staff when working in areas of risk such as Baghdad.

The move cements Pilgrims Group's position as leading providers of security consultancy and training services, adding to existing media contracts with NBC, CBS and ABC News, Al Jazeera International, ITN, and high profile clients in the energy, telecoms and financial sectors.
