Opportunities can be identified in manufacturing, distribution and retailing, repair and maintenance of security equipment and security infrastructure development to provision of security consulting and training services.


Private security industry falls short

By Retired Lt Col J Murire: Adopted from an article released By Chameleon Associates | October 19, 2017  

The private security sector in Zimbabwe is still viewed from the role played by private security guard companies. However the role of the internal security function within organisations has remained obscured. Internal security departments or proprietary security is very critical as it is the one that ensures organisation enter into sound security services contracts and receive value for money from the contract security service companies.


Reflection on data and digital driven corporate security strategies

The loss control profession or security management, as it is historically known, makes significant and more often unnoticed contribution to corporate profitability and growth. This unfortunate scenario continue to exist because the security profession has not raised its stakes to the same level with other professions and consequently the security function continues to be inappropriately placed and subordinated to lower levels in organisation structures. Its contribution is thus delivered through the hands of those other professions who obviously receive the credit.




The Institute of Certified Loss Management (ICLM) has now officially phased out the ZIM Advanced DIploma in Security Management. This follows the termination of the memorandum of agreement uner which the programme has been ruuning. ICLM decided not to align the programme to SADC and international standards and, instead it has introduced the new ICLM Advanced Diploma in Loss Management Programme which is accredited and becnhmarked to SADC and International standards. The Institute of Certified Loss Management (ICLM) will now concentrate on its new mandate of curriculum research and development as an examinantion board. The function of professional standards development and regulation will now be assigned to the newly crearted Institute of Chartered Loss Management in Zimbabwe (ICLMZ). ICLMZ will be officially launched at the third ICLM annual convention at RainBow Towers Hotel in November 2017. The ICLMZ will have inaguration of its constitution, Code of Conduct and Ethics and Regulations. All formalities for the registration of the Institute as a professional baord have been fulfilled.
