Homeland Security Group International Teams With Guardian Solutions to Offer Security for Off-Shore Oil Platforms

DEL MAR, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2006 -- Homeland Security Group International (OTC: HMSG) announced today that the company has entered into a teaming agreement to provide security for off-shore oil platforms in the Gulf Coast region.

"Our two companies began talks during recent meetings in Washington, D.C. and completed negotiations during the ISC West Security Conference in Las Vegas this last weekend," commented Mark Wilson, Director of Security Division for HMSG.

Wilson said the agreement, reached Wednesday in Las Vegas, Nevada, was signed by both parties on Monday, 10 April, 2006. Under the terms of the agreement, HMSG will represent Guardian Solutions during contract negotiations for a multi-million dollar security package aimed at upgrading security on off-shore oil production platforms for a major US oil company in Mississippi. The agreement also allows HMSG to represent Guardian Solutions during negotiations with west coast shipping ports and military installations.

Wilson and HMSG's CEO, Colonel Jeffrey Powers, USMC (Ret), are scheduled to travel to Pensacola, Florida, to view and evaluate Guardian's recent installation of their security packages at the Port of Pensacola. After that visit, Wilson and Powers will travel to Pascagoula, Mississippi, to meet with security directors from a major US oil company to outline their plan for securing the company's oil platforms in the Gulf States region using Guardian Solutions' innovative geo-spatial intelligent video software.
