Security in Brazil, Jack Devine & Amanda Mattingly; Latin America Advisor, August 2012

TAG’s President Jack Devine and Latin America expert Amanda Mattingly answered questions about Brazil’s security in a recent issue of the Inter-American Dialogue’s daily Latin America Advisor. Mr. Devine and Ms. Mattingly responded that despite a recent increase in crime in São Paulo, Brazil has been a great success over the last several years and has a lot to offer foreign investors. They said firms that succeed in markets facing security challenges are those that take steps to safeguard their operations, carry out security assessments and risk management exercises with their employees, and increase their spending on private security.
