"I.W.C. [sic] Security Advisors call immediate conference in Antwerp"
New York Ghost headline[src]

A Security Advisor is someone who is working for the International Confederation of Wizards in an advisory capacity in matters of magical security.[1]

In 1926, the New York Ghost reported that the International Confederation of Wizards' Security Advisors had called for an immediate conference in the city of Antwerp, in Belgium, in response to the rise of Gellert Grindelwald and his For the Greater Good campaign.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • It is unknown if the Security Advisers are employed by the International Confederation of Wizards to assist wizarding governing bodies, the Confederation itself or both.
  • Being the magical equivalent of the UN, it is unknown if there is an International Confederation of Wizard's Security Council, but if so, that would be where the Security Advisers work.
  • If there indeed is such a Security Council, it presumably serves a similar purpose as its non-magical counterpart, namely the maintenance of international peace and security in the wizarding world, as well as accepting new members to the International Confederation of Wizards and and approving any changes to its International Statutes of Secrecy.  Its powers would presumably likewise include the establishment of peacekeeping operations, which would explain both why and how the Security Advisers would call for an immediate conference in response to the rise of Gellert Grindelwald - whose attacks in Europe constituted considerable violations to wizarding secrecy - as well as who or what is behind the establishment of international task forces like the one stationed in Tibet.
