The preferred UN security supplier for nearly two decades.

IDG’s Afghan operation was registered in Kabul in 2004 as a prime contractor to provide security services directly to the United Nations and its Agencies, Funds and Programmes and it has done so continuously, with distinction, since then. We enable many UN agencies to fulfil their respective missions to assist the government and people of Afghanistan in capacity building, reconciliation, reconstruction and development.

Our Approach

IDG Security teams are an integral part of our clients’ missions in Afghanistan. We maintain armed and non-armed guard forces and Explosive Detection Dog (EDD) teams for a range of UN and non-governmental clients including the World Food Programme (WFP), UNICEF and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Our clients testify to the value of the working relationship they have with IDG.
