How to make your Organisation Resilient: Insights and Tools for improving Strategic Security Risk Management
Aid agencies work in continuously changing contexts, whether undertaking humanitarian, development or human right based work. This requires an effective security risk management strategy. This strategy must be robust enough to meet legal and ethical duty of care requirements while at the same time remaining flexible enough to facilitate program implementation when the context changes without becoming risk averse.
At Aidex we are offering two, half-day workshops aimed to improve the understanding of and capacity to implement security risk management appropriate to the organisation and context. The workshops are aimed at all management staff who have any responsibilities for staff safety (security and well-being), whether from a program, support or security perspective.
It can be relatively easy to get staff to implement security risk management in contexts which everyone recognises as “high risk” such as South Sudan, but what about those contexts where security deteriorates slowly over time or a single catastrophic event changes everyone’s attitude, for example Bangladesh and Mali?
Workshop 1 on 14/11: Developing an Organisational Structure that promotes Staff Safety
This will cover topics such as understanding how the trends in the broader humanitarian sector are influencing security risk management; finding a balance between programme criticality and risk management through integration of SRM throughout an organisation; duty of care responsibilities; and once you have all this - how to budget for it.
Workshop 2 on 15/11: Using Technology to Improve the Management of Incidents
This workshop will discuss how technology and evidence-based risk analysis can help aid agencies to improve their security risk management, through better understanding of the context, improved planning and greater awareness across different sections of the organisation. Topics will include the key trends in aid agency risks based on data provided by NGOs to the Aid in Danger project ,how security incident information can be utilised across the organisation and what technology exists and how it can improve monitoring, reporting and analysis of incidents as well as keeping staff safer on a day to day basis.
