Mission & Vision


APSA represents Professionals, Companies and Organizations involved in consulting and providing products and services pertaining to all sectors of the protection industry
In early 1992, the formation of the Asian professional Security Association (APSA) was first mooted by Mr. Sombat Pimsang, Founder President of APSA International, who saw the vision of uniting security associations in Asia.

Between April and October 1992, Mr. Sombat Pimsang, travelled to 15 Asian countries to persuade the Presidents of security associations of the respective counties to form APSA. He received overwhelming response and support from these visits.

On March 22-23, 1994 APSA was formed and inaugurated in conjunction with the launch of the First Asian International Security Conference in Bangkok, Thailand.
Today, APSA is the leading professional association of security practitioners in the Asian region.
