AISM established in 2008 after research into industry standards in Security & Investigation revealed a perceived shortfall of compliant work practices. Prior to launching AISM, extensive research, which included international practices, was conducted to identify and adopt best work practices. AISM was formed to provide a cost effective, professional, timely and transparent service provider.

We are unique because we work in partnership with clients to ensure their needs are met through identifying the right solutions to deliver the desired results.

Our major point of difference is that we DO NOT subcontract our Man power. Our staff is our responsibility which ensures operational transparency, consistency and a professional timely service.

All AISM personnel operate within the legal scope of relevant industries to ensure that our client's corporate image is maintained. Unlike many other providers, AISM has had no mergers, Sell-offs or “Industry Introductions”. Our excellent client base is achieved through performance, unique strategies and reputation.
