Security Management for Humanitarians

Given the insecure and often rapidly changing environments in which aid agencies work, safety and security management is not an optional extra.

This three-day intensive course will enable participants to identify the key requirements for managing security in complex emergencies and conflict zones by practicing essential techniques in risk management, security assessment and crisis response. The course draws on field case studies, the current humanitarian environment and the security management practices used by humanitarian bodies internationally.

The content of the course is aligned to the National Occupational Standards (UK) in Security Management as well as the InterAction Minimum Operating Security Standards and builds on the ECHO Security Training Modules.

  • Environmental scanning

  • Duty of care and external stakeholders

  • In depth security risk management sessions; threat, vulnerability and mitigation

  • Incident response, analysis, reporting and information management

  • Security strategies, policy and planning

  • Crisis management

  • Operational continuity

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Reflect and evaluate on personal performance and the performance of others in relation to security in emergencies and improving practice
