Doing the right thing makes better business sense

Role of Responsible Private Security

A Critical Operational Element Across All Sectors

  • Private Security Companies (PSCs) protect state and non-state clients engaged in relief, recovery, and reconstruction efforts, commercial business operations, diplomacy and military activity.
  • Activities of PSCs, large or small, multinational or local, can have potentially positive consequences for their clients, the local population in the area of operation, the general security environment, the enjoyment of human rights and the rule of law.
