Oversight Risk Consulting Signs JV Agreement with Steven Collins of Black Ice Security


Oversight Risk Consulting announced today that they have signed a JV agreement with Steven Collins, owner of Black Ice Security in Virginia. This agreement creates a new Black Ice – Chatter Open Group within Chatter which should exponentially increase both users and security based information around the globe.

Oversight is a risk and security consultancy company based in Bogota. In March they launched Chatter, a web based software designed to help security and risk professionals better manage their security risks globally. Chatter begins with the first real “web generation 2.0 solution for security and risk professionals” and includes the most functional social networking applications for those security and risk professionals available today.

Steven Collins is a retired US Navy SEAL Master Chief who spent much of his operational work involved with intelligence and special programs. He is the founder and President of Black Ice Security – a bespoke private security consulting, investigations and protection services company based in Northern Virginia.

In addition to Steven’s impressive business accomplishments, over the last 10-years he has built a trusted network of more than 6,000 security professionals, many operating in all corners of the globe. The group includes many US military veterans, former special operators and intelligence professionals. Under the terms of the agreement, Steven will offer members of his group the opportunity to form a private social network within Chatter, where they can use Chatter’s tools to post, communicate, archive, retrieve and share security based information in GIS formats, wherever they are working. In return, those members will post data which Oversight can leverage to other paying clients.  

Mike Faessler, the founder of Oversight said, “We’re very excited to be partnered with Steven and his Black Ice Group. He has a special relationship with his group members which he built over many years, and those members have a lot of trust in him – which he has earned. We have no doubt that Steven’s group will find value managing their security information within the Chatter, and in using other software features to help manage their security risks. I’m optimistic that this agreement will also provide us with global coverage and reporting of security based information - highly beneficial for many of our clients.       

Steven Collins, President of Black Ice Security remarked: “I am very excited to bring this high-end software package to my group members. They consist of some of the best and brightest in the world of military, intelligence, and law enforcement and within the government support contracting area. Thousands are deployed or live overseas and many are nationals of countries other than the U.S. Intelligence experts, operators, and professionals in many areas all… With Chatter, we will create a worldwide network of high-end users that will integrate cross-cultural, cross-industry, cross-national, and cross-company lines…in short we are creating a GIS based information networking capability that just does not exist in a non-government form. I thank Mike and the Oversight team in bringing this capability to the Black Ice Group and entrusting us to introduce it to the world… I am expecting this to change the face and future of threat risk management integration and coordination within any given operating area – forever”.
