Creation of new brand following integration of five specialist businesses, and the move comes in response to growing global demand for integrated human, cyber and physical security consultancy and service delivery.

GSA Global, a specialist risk and security consultancy, has been launched with the merger of Global Secure Accreditation, GSA Security & Risk (formerly BGS Ltd), GSA Cyber Secure, GSA Resourcing and newly acquired MHG Corporate Risks to form GSA Global. 

GSA Global brings exceptional skills and experience to address serious, new and complex threats and risks. GSA combines deep security insight and expertise drawn from the decades of experience in leading and advising on security and resilience.  

GSA Global will offer clients four key security and risk services: investigations & crisis management, insider risk management, cyber security consultancy and protection services. GSA Global will offer exceptional service to clients by quickly bringing to bear combined resources from its specialist teams to tackle complex threats, risks and emergencies of all kinds. Whether it’s for corporate clients, government departments or high net worth individuals, GSA Global is ready to help clients to mitigate risks and tackle threats whatever form they may take.

“We know that the nature of security threats is constantly changing, and our business needs to respond accordingly”, said David Wood, CEO of GSA Global. “Our background in law enforcement, national security and global business, and our team’s exceptional skills and experience allows us to address the most important security and resilience threats and risks.”

He added: “The new group structure and specialisms will ensure that we deliver this expertise to our clients in the most effective way as well as giving us the flexibility to offer innovative solutions to new and complex security challenges as they arise.”

GSA Global’s experts recognise today’s threats are a result of hybrid attacks targeting both digital, human and physical assets. The growth in business and technology outsourcing, the adoption and integration of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the rise of mobile working has led to an increasingly interconnected mesh of cyber-physical systems, which expands the attack surface and blurs the boundaries of corporate and ecosystem security, cyber and physical security. What’s more, growing efforts by bad actors to compromise insiders adds another dimension to security challenges.  While the accelerating adoption of advanced technologies such as AI is introducing new, more complex and more challenging security risks. 

David Wood added: “Together, human, cyber and physical assets represent a significant security risk: each can be targeted, separately or simultaneously, to compromise people, systems and/or infrastructure. Yet physical security and cybersecurity divisions are often still treated as separate entities. When security leaders allow security to operate in these siloes, they lack a holistic view of security threats targeting their enterprise. As a result, attacks are more likely to occur and succeed, leading to the exposure of sensitive or proprietary information, economic damage, loss of critical systems and even loss of life. It is therefore vital to have a well-rounded security offering that works effectively across all security domains.  

“At GSA Global we have chosen to unify what were separate divisions under a new common goal of providing agile and comprehensive security solutions. Our mission is to protect our clients’ most valuable assets, their people, property, information, and reputation: delivering specialist expertise in secure and sensitive environments. As a group, we are committed to assisting organisations with their cybersecurity and physical security threats, so they are better prepared to identify, prevent, mitigate, and respond to threats.”
