Jefferson Waterman International and PSA Asia Pacific Announce New Security and Intelligence Partnership

New alliance brings comprehensive security and intelligence services to multinational firms and government agencies in Thailand.

A newly announced partnership between Jefferson Waterman International and PSA Asia Pacific (PSA Asia) takes security and intelligence services currently available in Thailand and the Southeast Asia region to another level. For ten years, PSA Asia has been providing high quality risk analysis and assessment to leading multinational firms operating in Thailand and to government agencies. The new partnership extends services from evaluating and identifying risks through comprehensively addressing them. Jointly offered services span security evaluations, program design, technology recommendations, and training for implementing effective counter-terrorism, counter-insurgency, counter-narcotics, facility security, infrastructure security, crowd control, defensive intelligence, and personnel protection programs.

“Incidents such as the 2008 Mumbai attacks underscore the need of clients to do all they can to protect their high-profile facilities and people,” says Sam Hoskinson, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of JWI. “The JWI and PSA Asia partnership now gives clients in Thailand and the broader Southeast Asia region access to advanced, comprehensive security and intelligence solutions.”

The JWI component of services — answering detected threats and vulnerabilities with security solutions — is delivered by JWI’s cadre of world-class security and intelligence experts, headed by Joe Augustyn, JWI’s Executive Vice President of Security and Intelligence and the former U.S. Deputy Associate Director of Central Intelligence for Homeland Security. JWI’s security and intelligence team also includes the world’s foremost authority on protecting large cities from terrorist attack, and specialists in intelligence operations centers; aviation security; paramilitary, counter-terrorism operations; and law enforcement.

“The synergy of JWI and PSA Asia capabilities enables government agencies and multinational companies in a wide range of sectors, from energy to hospitality, to put gold-standard security procedures and systems to work,” says Mr. Augustyn. “Clients now can cost-effectively implement solutions for potentially devastating vulnerabilities.”

Sanit Nakajitti, Director of PSA Asia Pacific, sees the partnership as welcome news to corporate and government communities in the region. “Security is critical to economic vitality. The unprecedented expertise and needed services that the PSA Asia-JWI alliance brings offers a meaningful opportunity for improved security and protection.”
