Security Operations


With over a decade of risk analysis, risk mitigation and close protection experience, Halliday Finch understands the realities of safety and security management on the continent.

Each country has its own inimitable characteristics and dynamics. With distinct cultures, languages, topographies, economies and legal systems, no two African countries or locations are the same.


Should you require close protection whilst travelling in Africa, Halliday Finch provides vetted, discreet and trained Close Protection Officers to reduce your risks. Our officers are chosen to suit each client and in line with the prevailing security environment.  All tasks are planned and monitored by our 24/7 Operations Centre.

Halliday Finch supports all client travel requirements in order to reduce risks, increase security and maximise client productivity from arrival to departure.  This service is founded upon a deep understanding of Africa, local knowledge, cultural awareness and social sensitivity.

In most African countries a major risk to travellers is road safety.  Vehicles are often poorly maintained and road conditions extremely unpredictable.  Breakdowns can attract unwelcome attention, creating risk situations.  Halliday Finch provide carefully maintained vehicles driven by operators who are trained in defensive driving and extremely familiar with local traffic conditions. All Halliday Finch vehicles are tracked 24/7 from our Operations Centre and in most countries come equipped with WiFi connectivity.
