Your Business Expert in China Security

Welcome to Madeira Security Consulting, Inc.

Are you seeking business opportunities in China, but are uncertain where to start?

Or are you already established in China, but are running into agonizing problems?

Do you need to solve security problems, but are not yet ready to hire a full-time equivalent as a security manager?

Helping American businesses in China is our passion in life, and we have a broad background doing so.

We know how to define market opportunities in China through long experience living and working there.

We also help management to address these risks so that employees feel confident and focused at work:

  • Theft of intellectual property and physical assets
  • Hostile action by the host government
  • Security mishaps while on company travel
  • Assault and other violence in the workplace, or in the neighborhood

We identify threats and risks, write plans to minimize them, and train people already on staff to implement the plans.
