CoESS presents role of private security in Critical Infrastructure Protection at OSCE Meeting

On 6 July, CoESS Director General Catherine Piana spoke at the “Workshop to Raise Awareness and Launch the Roadmap on Countering Terrorist Threats against Vulnerable Targets for Tajikistan” held under the aegis of OSCE’s Action against Terrorism, the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism and the OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe, Dajikistan. She presented the role of private security providers in critical infrastructure protection and the challenges of insider threat mitigation.

This followed a previous intervention at the OSCE’s Security Committee on 7 March on the Public-Private Partnerships within the Critical Entities context.

CoESS looks forward to further cooperate with and present at OSCE, on the highly relevant and timely matter of Critical Infrastructure Protection.

The Organisation for Security and Co-operation brings together 57 States. It has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, human rights, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counter-terrorism and economic and environmental activities.
