Regional Security Office
The Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) initiated a program to assist the U.S. private sector with the establishment of country councils in foreign cities to enhance the exchange of security related information abroad. These organizations encourage managers of U.S. enterprises with security responsibilities to organize themselves to cope with security problems by pooling their resources.
Key representatives of these councils and U.S. Embassy security officers, as well as other post officials, develop working relationships to create an exchange of information through which pertinent, unclassified, security information is shared in a timely fashion.
This site was developed to assist Italian based U.S. enterprises better communicate with U.S. Embassy security officers and also to provide a link to other OSAC information.
The Overseas Security Advisory Council Web site provides links to information from around the world.
