Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) Publications
OSAC continually promotes the exchange of information on developments in all aspects of security and recommends methods for planning and implementing security programs abroad. To achieve these objectives, OSAC established committees to address issues such as emergency preparedness, physical security, and protection of proprietary information.
OSAC committees have produced several publications to be used as guidelines by the American private sector living and operating abroad.
