DHS Protective Security Advisors (PSAs)

Protective Security Advisors (PSAs) are security subject matter experts who engage with SLTT government mission partners and members of the private-sector stakeholder community to protect the Nation’s critical infrastructure. Regional directors oversee and manage the Department’s PSA program in their respective region, while PSAs facilitate local field activities in coordination with other DHS offices. The PSAs support the protection of critical infrastructure through planning, coordinating, and conducting voluntary security surveys and assessments; planning and conducting outreach activities; supporting National Special Security Events and Special Event Activity Rating events; responding to incidents; and coordinating and supporting improvised explosive device awareness and risk mitigation training.
