The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) is to host the maiden American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) Confab to chart a new
course on ways to improve security in the Sub- Saharan African region.
Chairman local organising committee for the conference, Mr Edward Orim said the proposed conference with the theme:”Managing security risks in Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous, Digital (VUCAD) Africa”, is expected to bring security professionals together to brainstorm and proffer solutions that will address security issues.
Key speakers at forthcoming conference include President Bola Tinubu, the National Security Adviser (NSA), Security Service Chiefs, FCTA Permanent Secretary, Olusade Adesola, ASIS President among others from Ghana, South Africa and Europe.
According to Mr Orim, the conference would help identify vulnerabilities, encourage and support governments especially those battling with insecurity.
Mr Orim explained that the Association formerly known as American Society for Industrial Security, is a security body that is recognized all over the world, with about 34,000 members.
He said: ” We normally have conferences between Africa, Europe, Asia and America, but for now we are having the African conference, which Abuja is hosting.
“We are collaborating with the FCTA, as they are our host, and this is not the first time it is holding in Africa, and by September we will be having the international in Dallas, USA, and members will be going for training abroad, so as to have more knowledge and wider opportunity to be able to combat the security menace we have.
“I will like to encourage members of the public and law enforcement agencies to find time and get into the links to register, and come in person for the conference, as there are a lot of things they will benefit from participating.” Orim said.
