As set out in section I of this chapter, private military and security companies (PMSCs) are found in a variety of contexts and fulfil diverse roles that include intelligence and risk advisory services, cybersecurity, (dis)information campaigns, close protection for high-profile individuals, security for property and infrastructure, military and security training, technical and logistical support services to host state and expeditionary forces, and in some cases combat operations. They have also become increasingly involved in providing protective and logistical services to United Nations peacekeeping and humanitarian operations.1
