Security Assessment

As an additional measure of reassurance, AFRINIC has commissioned a security agency, Salama Fikira, to undertake a full Security Assessment of the meeting venue and the surrounding areas. The report is available to be downloaded below.

Salama Fikira (SF) has been contracted to conduct a security assessment of Nairobi, Kenya, for AIS'17, which is to be held at the Boma Inn Hotel. 

The report highlights that the overall threat level at the Boma hotels is considered to be low, with no inhibitive risks identified during the assessment. Comprehensive security measures – physical, human and technical – have been implemented at the complex, which are assessed to effectively mitigate most common security threats in Nairobi. While crime rates are at a high level throughout Nairobi, the immediate surroundings of the site experience relatively few security-related incidents. However, significant threats to individuals travelling to and from the site from criminal elements, incidents in civil unrest remain in place.
