About Security Watch Africa

Security Watch Africa strives to bridge the security information gap in the continent and ensure that Africans are on the cutting edge in contemporary security issues and solutions, as security and safety are everybody’s business. We seek to create security awareness and consciousness through the following medium. Our flagship Television programme is being beamed to the world on Africa Independent Television (AIT) since 1997. We extensively discuss and report security related information, issues and events against contemporary realities. Experts in the industry present personal and professional opinions on the programme.

The conference series which was introduced in 2005 is aimed at identifying security problems affecting Africa and her people, discuss these problems and proffer actionable solutions. We identify the need to draw from the wealth of experience of security decision makers and professionals, both within and outside the continent to facilitate the conference, making it an opportunity for new discoveries to the attendees. 


Initiated and inaugurated in 2004, with the aim to recognise, appreciate, encourage and celebrate individuals, governments, agencies, brands and companies who have excelled in security administration, practice and governance in Africa. It has remained a truly credible and glamorous international event.
