February 28th, 2020 – Joseph A. LaSorsa, President of LaSorsa & Associates, discussed his 20 years of working with the United States Secret Service in a recent interview and how this experience has shaped his company’s direction. “Working at such a high level of personal security has driven us to focus on professionalism and risk assessment with every job, no matter how big or small. I have learned that you can never take anything for granted, and my experiences working with the Secret Service have provided me with material to use in a wide variety of situations that my agents and I encounter on a daily basis.”
Before becoming a Secret Service agent, LaSorsa graduated from Queens College in New York with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a minor in languages. This education prepared him for a career that would span several countries and involve interaction with many cultures and socio-economic groups.
LaSorsa spent 20 years guarding Presidents and other dignitaries as part of his duties with the Secret Service. He was a member of the Presidential Protection Detail for Ronald Reagan; worked with the Secret Service Task Force in Milan, Italy, to suppress counterfeiting; was a member of the pilot team on telecommunications fraud; served on the Director’s Total Quality Management Team; and was awarded the Secretary of the Treasury Award, the highest honor given to agents.
Today, he is a Certified Protection Professional, or CPP, and a member of the American Society for Industrial Security, or ASIS. LaSorsa and Associates provides a wide range of services including evasive driving school, executive protection school, and bodyguard training.
