Introduction to Security Management (Ukraine)

RedR is delighted to announce the launch of its open 'pop-up' training programme in Ukraine for individuals and organisations operating as part of the humanitarian response. This will begin with the delivery of 6 security courses in Kyiv and Sloviansk.

This 2-day course is intended to familiarize you with strategic security and crisis management. By applying a variety of practical tools, you will learn how to improve organizational strategic responses in terms of team structure, roles, processes, and decision making.

The course draws on field case studies, the current humanitarian environment and the security management practices used by humanitarian bodies internationally. We will cover a lot of tools, frameworks, and models that will support you with integrating strategic security and crisis management into your organization.
