Our Vision

Our vision is to be a leading provider of security, intelligence and technical services which enable our customers to maintain the highest levels of protection, discretion and competitive advantage wherever they may operate.


Mitigate Corporate Threats Via a Virtual Security Program

Do you have an effective security program in place?  SMI can serve as your company’s Virtual Chief Security Officer, an affordable alternative to a full-time CSO, which also provides you with a team of subject matter experts, in various security disciplines, rather than just one person.


Prepare for Emergencies & Train Your Organization for Crisis Response

Medical emergencies, natural disasters and political instability – coupled with crime, terrorism, and threats from hostile foreign intelligence services – may require immediate evacuation from an unfavorable part of the globe.  Are you prepared for this and other potential crises?


Protect Intellectual Property with Counter-Espionage

Hostile foreign intelligence services, as well as private collectors/hackers, frequently target international business travelers for their intellectual property.  Protect your business secrets with SMI's unique training courses, so you can learn how to think and act like a counterintelligence officer.
