African Association of Threat Assessment Professionals

AfATAP was formed by the founder board members who saw a need for a non-profit organisation to effectively address the scourge of violence. Its mandate is to educate professionals and the public about threat assessment and management.

AFATAP, affectionately called “Aftap” opened memberships in March 2020 and are slowly growing. In 2020 due social distancing we were the first Threat Association (TAP) to start hosting Open Subject Matter Expert Talks (OSMET) webinars on a regular basis. 


AfATAP is one of five sister associations, all independent but sharing a common view and purpose. These organisations include ATAP in the US, APATAP in the Asia-Pacific region, CATAP in Canada, and AETAP in Europe.
