The Middle East and North Africa covers a vast array of differing cultures, political systems and economies.

The need for risk management in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen may be self-evident. However, organisations looking to work in Morocco require a very different approach to security. Whilst crime rates are low in much of the region, threats from militia, terrorists and autocratic governments must all be considered. From Morocco to Yemen, Salama Fikira have enabled companies and individuals to operate safely. In many cases, this has necessitated the use of physical and technical security provision. In others, we are able to provide granular analysis in order to help organisations make the right decisions.

MENA Case Studies

Risk Assessment

Type of Service: Assessment and Advisory
Location: Yemen
Sector: Energy

Salama Fikira were requested by a long-standing client to conduct a risk assessment in Yemen. Due to the sensitivities of the task, we elected to send a senior member of staff to ensure complete operational security. A single member of staff deployed to Sana’a and Aden in order to understand the socio-political environment. The deployment and report were conducted less than 10 days and the product was able to inform key decision makers within the organisation.

Close Protection & Secure Ground Transportation

Type of Service: Secure Ground Transportation and Close Protection
Location: Morocco
Sector: Corporate Security

An international Oil and Gas company that Salama Fikira has been contracted by Africa requested for a turnkey security solution in Morocco to support a key stakeholder.

Salama Fikira deployed one French speaking consultant from the region who had prior experience within the area of operation. An initial Risk Assessment was conducted two days prior to the task. This included route, site and residential assessments ensuring that a detailed concept of operations and security plan was compiled in conjunction with the operations room in order to ensure that all eventualities are captured, planned for and effective mitigation measures put in place.

Secure Ground Transportation

Type of Service: Secure Ground Transportation
Location: Muscat, Oman
Sector: Private

Salama Fikira were contracted to provide an English speaking driver and SUV to ensure secure ground transportation of two principals who wished to visit the city of Muscat, Oman.

Salama Fikira’s Oman country partner was promptly contacted and a driver with the appropriate credentials was provided. After the completion of a full risk assessment, our asset was comprehensively briefed and thus maintained a thorough understanding of both the potential threats the principals faced in Muscat and the secure ground transportation SOPs.

The two day task was monitored and tracked by our 24/7 operations team in Nairobi, Kenya. The task was completed with total success as no incidents were recorded and the principals enjoyed their time in Muscat.
