The Modern Security Consulting Group MOSECON GmbH is a counter-terrorism, security and international affairs consultancy, headquartered in Berlin, Germany, with offices in Lagos, Nigeria and London,UK. We offer strategic counter-terrorism and security advice that matches the flexibility, adaptability and speed of 21st century threats such as international and “homegrown” terrorism, international smuggling, extended organised crime, foreign fighters and mass attacks that require fast response times. As such, MOSECON’s personnel advises heads of state and government, governments, NGOs, think tanks and private companies around the world on how to develop counter-terrorism and security strategies and policies.

We strongly believe in versatility and adaptability, so MOSECON personnel is in an excellent position to contribute to policy making, agenda setting, strategic and tactical decision making as well as to security programme development and academic projects. MOSECON also contributes significantly in the field, an asset we view as essential to developing and implementing advice that reflects the reality on the ground. Furthermore, we believe that fast and reliable information saves lives, which is why our international network of informants and partners allows us to react and advise decision making in real time. This helps us significantly in contributing to prevention, crisis management and post-crisis development situations.

As we know that criminal organisations collaborate and complement their resources, we believe security actors must do the same. Therefore, our advice, methods and strategies are multifaceted and multilateral, designed to ensure that all security resources complement each other. As such, we are happy to work with and bring together civil society groups, NGOs, academia, law enforcement, intelligence networks, practitioners and policy makers to help develop the best methods and policies, as well as define the best approach towards improving the security for everyone.

Modern threats are international, adaptable, flexible, fast, stealthy and resourceful. Modern security must be just as savvy and resourceful, and we believe MOSECON can help societies to be up to the task.
