Local Cultural Awareness

Situation awareness in any hostile environment is key, but having cultural awareness of local communities and tribes in Iraq within each city, town or village, can define the success or failure of a project in Iraq. Al Murabit works to become a reliable security company by building relationships over time with local tribes for intelligence gathering, harmonious working within a community and to ensure the safety of clients should a local conflict arise. We have measures within Al Murabit to employ and train people from the local community that we are working within. This immersion in local society is central to our ability to offer our clients peace of mind.


Al Murabit was the first UKAS witnessed assessment on ISO 18788 in the world.
Al Murabit Security Services has assumed a leadership role in Iraq for quality assurance and has worked hard to achieve relevant international accreditations; AMS can proudly confirm they are the first Iraqi security company to be internationally compliant.
