We believe in augmenting holistic risk management systems by arming human experts with accurate data to make better decisions, faster.

We saw a need for a different kind of risk assessment technology to screen large volumes of people for risk and to accelerate trust without bias, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to deploy it. That’s why we founded AC Global Risk.

In 2006, our technology’s inventor was a member of a task force charged to solve the problem of vetting 700,000 Mexican Police after it was feared they were infiltrated by drug cartels and other criminal organizations.

There was simply no way to accomplish this unless a new technology was invented that could securely and accurately screen massive volumes of people simultaneously.

After several years of research, development, testing, and fine-tuning, technology was deployed and has obtained powerful and conclusive results for all risk assessment applications undertaken to date.

What We Believe


We conduct business in austere environments, some of which are considered the toughest places on earth. We are part of something bigger. We take pride in making the world a safer place.


We strive to be the best at what we do. We hold each other accountable. We take care of business and exceed expectations, while adhering to the highest standards.


We disrupt markets and industries. We respect the past, but don’t accept the status quo. We can pivot quickly and think on our feet.
