List / Directory of PSCs or Private Security Companies (contractors, firms). Indeed, sometimes PSCs are referred to as PMCs or PMSCs, and all the way round. It is also sometimes complex to distinguish between 'private military' and 'private security' capabilities, particularly when firms operate in dangerous environments. Therefore, it is perhaps better for you to focus on the services they offer, and if you fail to find the solution you were looking for, check our other directories.
