The Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) is responsible for promoting security cooperation between the Department of State (DoS) and private sector interests worldwide. Established in 1985, under Secretary of State George Shultz, the OSAC council is comprised of 30 private sector and four public sector organizations representing specific industries and agencies that operate abroad. The current website enables more than 43,000 users affiliated with OSAC to receive the tools needed to manage security-related issues abroad. OSAC helps private sector interests remain competitive and secure in the global environment by disseminating vital security-related information to its constituents. OSAC uses its website as the primary information sharing tool with its constituents.
The current version of the OSAC.gov website was launched in June 2019 which was a complete redesign of both user experience and user interface. In addition, the new website was developed using an ASP.NET platform and the physical data infrastructure was replaced with a cloud solution, Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud. The OSAC mobile application was also updated to realign with the new features of the redesigned website.
