The leadership team at Security Advisors Consulting Group has over fifty years of cumulative experience in the Security and Law Enforcement fields, but due to the situational nature of security we occasionally find it beneficial to our clients for us to consult with experts who have experience working in specific geographic locations, specialized industries, or mitigating specific risks where we have limited experience.
In order to ensure the best possible service for our clients we maintain a stable of vetted individual practitioners and other firms, who we can involve in projects or refer clients to when a situation is outside of our areas of expertise.
Current affiliates include:
Licensed private investigators
Cyber & information security consultants
Executive protection firms
Fraud and white collar crime specialists
Consultants with experience in industries requiring specialized knowledge where we lack expertise.
Consultants with experience in global locations where we lack expertise or we may not be licensed.
Affiliations with professional organizations
