Inter-Con Security Systems, Inc. was founded by retired LAPD Officer Hank Hernandez in 1973 with the express purpose of providing security services to clients whose threat profiles exceeded the capabilities of traditional guarding companies. Since then, Inter-Con has distinguished itself by consistently delivering comprehensive, yet cost-effective solutions to an expansive client portfolio located in over 20 countries on 5 continents. Additionally, in an industry dominated by private equity and institutionally-run competitors, Inter-Con proudly remains a 100% Family and Minority-owned Business; a rarity in its financial independence and operational stability.

Under the guidance of Hank’s son and current Inter-Con CEO, Rick Hernandez, Inter-Con has grown into one of the world’s largest security companies, with over 25,000 employees. Inter-Con is now transitioning to its 3rd generation of Hernandez leadership with Henry Hernandez (B.A. and J.D. from Harvard College and Harvard Law School) taking the helm as President.
