JAMES A. ACEVEDO, CPP, CPS

The Drone Guy and/or Evil Genius


Security, Security Consulting and Investigations is a dynamic and forever changing environment. Understanding that RISK is a combination of THREAT, VULNERABILITY and CONSEQUENCES keeps one on their toes because you never know when things will change.


The secret to having effective security is a combination of Deterrence, Detection, Delay and Response. There is no “voodoo magic” or “silver bullet”. Mr. Acevedo has been involved in investigations and security consulting for more than 19 years. He has been designated a Certified Protection Professional (CPP) by ASIS. Mr. Acevedo is also a Certified Protection Specialist (CPS), having graduated from Executive Security International, as a level-one agent.


During his career, he has conducted hundreds of investigations and security consulting projects around the world. Mr. Acevedo has had the honor and privilege of working in more than forty plus countries and nearly every state within the United States including Alaska. He was a part of the core team that conducted the security and vulnerability assessments for the entire City and County of Denver post September 9/11. He has been trained in the Sandia Laboratory Risk Assessment Methodologies (RAM). Using that training Mr. Acevedo has gained special expertise in assessing critical infrastructure security for utilities including water/waste water systems, power companies sub-stations, black start generation stations and non-nuclear power plants (NERC CIP Standards). He has also developed considerable expertise in the United States Customs Border Protection (CBP) program Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), ISO 28000 and various Supply Chain Security Programs.

Finally, for the last three years Mr. Acevedo has been striving to understand and evaluate how unmanned systems (land, sea and air) can impact security. He has had the opportunity to speak at ASIS International and has written a number of articles on the subject. You can follow him on Twitter @JamesAAcevedo #DroneRevolution
