Given the insecure and often rapidly changing environments in which aid agencies work, safety and security management is not an optional extra - it needs to be at the heart of humanitarian programmes. This five-day course will enable participants to identify the key requirements for managing security in an organisational framework, and practice essential techniques in risk management and crisis response.

The course draws on extensive field case studies, the current humanitarian environment and the security management practices used by humanitarian bodies internationally. The module will be run as a five day intensive workshop involving presentations, group work, the production of a security plan and two simulation exercises.

The content of this module has been informed by the National Occupational Standards (UK) in Security Management, and the material is aligned with the InterAction Minimum Operating Security Standards and ECHO Training Modules.

What does the course cover?

  • Environmental scanning (local contexts and programmes)
  • Threat, vulnerability and risk assessment
  • Application of risk standards and models
  • Incident response, analysis, reporting and information management
  • Security strategies, policy and planning
  • Legal liability
  • Crisis management
  • Operational continuity
  • Team management through security programming
  • Psycho-social support

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

  • Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of key security management skills (including risk management, situational analysis, assessment, plan implementation, monitoring and evaluation, continuity and crisis planning and leadership) and their use in relation to setting and achieving programme goals when managing humanitarian emergencies
  • Demonstrate ability to work effectively in reviewing and enhancing security management practice and procedures to support programmes and staff in the field
  • Reflect and evaluate on personal performance and the performance of others in relation to security in emergencies and improving practice
