About Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC)
The Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) was created in 1985 under the Federal Advisory Committee Act to promote security cooperation between American private-sector interests worldwide and the U.S. Department of State. OSAC promotes effective cooperation by working to assist the U.S. private sector to better anticipate security issues, including identifying and tracking threats, particularly those targeting private sector personnel, facilities, investments, interests, and intellectual property. Today over 4,000 corporations, universities, and faith-based organizations are member of the Overseas Security Advisory Council.
About the International Security Foundation (ISF)
The International Security Foundation (ISF) was founded in 2011 by members of the OSAC Council with a goal of supporting OSAC and to better serve the private-public security partnership. The ISF provides enhanced sharing of information, industry benchmarking, and educational programs. In 2023, the ISF merged with the nonprofit Domestic Security Partnership (DSP) and began to support the Domestic Security Alliance Council’s (DSAC) programs.
