  • Al Murabit now has a business development office in Dubai and fully operational offices in Basra and Baghdad with secure villa accommodation, life support services and an operations room with integrated communications and a state-of-the-art tracking system.
  • Our team is available to advise and provide cost-effective realistic solutions for your security requirements. Contact our team for more information.

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 has successfully achieved the ISO 18788:2015, ISO 9001:2015 and the ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012

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.
