This training is an output of the SIIM Project and designed to increase organisational capacity to accurately report, record and share security incident data. It focusses on:
• Informing immediate responses to incidents
• Implementing lessons learned for a better prevention
• Using data to better understand the humanitarian security context.
• Using data to inform decision making at organisation level
The resources, self-paced activities, discussions and webinar will reinforce participant’s knowledge, skills and competencies on: collection, reporting, recording, analysis, use, and sharing of security incident information.
