PSA provides security management, crisis response, business intelligence, and community relations to the mining sector, helping mining firms navigate the complex set of risks and threats they are likely to face when operating in Asia.
Specifically, PSA has managed the entire security management and market entry program for multiple mining firms. This includes security and socio-political assessments and strategy, the provision of onsite security managers, executive/personal protection and extortion response. PSA has also conducted on-the-ground intelligence gathering and government/military liaison services to identify potential issues and protect mining personnel and assets. More recently, PSA and sustainable development consultancy firm Stratos jointly produced and developed an implementation guidance toolkit on Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights to help extractive companies implement voluntary principles across the world.
