The Asia Crisis and Security Group (ACSG) was founded in 2006. ACSG developed from the Tsunami that struck parts of Asia on 26 December 2004. Many corporate security professionals in the region worked through the Tsunami in an effort to provide assistance to many of our companies’ employees in the region. Many of us arranged evacuations for employees who were in need of assistance in Indonesia, Thailand and Sri-Lanka. As with all major crisis events, it was a busy and challenging time for those in corporate security roles. What struck many who worked through the Tsunami aftermath was the extent to which the industry cooperated together as security professionals working in a diverse variety of companies.
Around twenty security professionals who had worked through the Tsunami response met to discuss lessons learnt from the crisis, as well as ensure that we could cooperate more efficiently during a future crisis. Following this meeting, ACSG was founded and the mandate has since expanded to include various components of the corporate security spectrum across industries, including physical security, intelligence, brand protection, investigations, business continuity, crisis management, fraud, financial crime, etc.
As at 1 January 2019, membership is at 450 people drawn from 260 companies, organisations and Governments with operations in Asia.
