Professionalization of Security

Security Forums
Training Resources

The ‘Professionalization of Security’ in Nigeria strategy is designed as a mechanism for individuals and organizations to share ideas and best practice in order to support the personal and professional development of security practitioners and focal points, while concurrently reducing security risks and operational disruptions to projects and organizations.

Useful Articles and Reports

The PLSO team offers a range of tools and resources to support this initiative. We run workshops where guest speakers can offer useful insights and where participants can share experiences and knowledge. And, we offer opportunities for security practitioners to access useful knowledge and skills through online and in-person mentoring, training and exercising opportunities.

We encourage the active involvement of participants and their organizations in sharing experiences, ideas and solutions for the benefit of all within Nigeria.
