Presenters include George Frederick from the U.S. Department of State; Amy Manson, President of Kari Corporation, and Robert Lady, President of R.L. International.
Keeney notes the importance of AI's participation in OSAC events. “OSAC events such as this Forum offer AI the opportunity to share knowledge and interact with other security industry professionals. AI is committed to maintaining security management best practices and keeping current on emerging risk trends. This type of continued education and collaboration is crucial to AI remaining strategically positioned to combat the threats that face our clients.”
The Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) was created under the Federal Advisory Committee Act to promote security cooperation between American private sector interests worldwide and the U.S. Department of State. The OSAC "Council" is comprised of 34 private and public-sector member organizations that represent specific industries or agencies operating abroad. The member organizations designate representatives to serve on the OSAC Council to provide direction and guidance to develop programs that most benefit the U.S. private sector overseas. A primary goal of OSAC is to develop an effective security communication network, consequently, OSAC invites all U.S. businesses, academia, faith-based groups, and non-governmental organizations to become constituents. Today, over 3,500 U.S. companies, educational institutions, faith-based institutions, and non-governmental organizations with 16,000 users are OSAC constituents.
