Dana Aussems CPP
Port Security Consultant
Dana is an expert in port-related security. After working for several years as a consultant for a private security organization, she continued her career as a security manager and PFSO for a large container terminal in the port of Rotterdam. The knowledge about the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code), which had just been introduced at the time, was not only put into practice here, but also at other terminals in the world that were part of the parent company.
She then specialized further in supply chain security. As a member of a team of specialists, she conducted in collaboration with U.S. Customs and Border Protection various international Customs-Trade Partnership (C-TPaT) surveys.
In 2014 Dana started her own company, by DnA. Since then, she has supported various national and international clients with their security strategies and policies, risk and threat assessments, and security plans and procedures. Because of her background in the hospitality industry, she approaches security in a different way than most; security as a service.
