Is your organisation adequately prepared and equipped to deal with the rapid and dynamic changes taking place in the African security environment?

The shifting security landscape and newly emerging threats require the countries in ECOWAS and the wider region to formulate national security strategies and frameworks that share common approaches and address shared security concerns. As key security stakeholders continue to develop and implement these policies, security providers will be called upon to offer the most advanced technologies and integrated systems that mitigate the risk posed by threats to homeland stability and tranquility.

Defence IQ’s first annual Homeland Security Focus Day for Africa, as part of the Coastal and Maritime Surveillance Summit taking place 16 March 2015 in Accra, is the region’s premiere event for ascertaining information about the latest trends in homeland security and the most advanced technologies for integrating capability across multiple agencies and directorates.

Those who book to attend the Homeland Security Africa focus day gain complimentary access to the Coastal and Maritime Surveillance Summit Africa which takes place over the following two days (17-18 March).

  • Demonstrate to regional police forces that you take their challenges and requirements seriously enough to attend or support this event in order to learn more at the time to get involved
