As the contexts aid agencies work in become more complex, the management tools required to keep staff safe while maintaining access and programme implementation must become more flexible to be able to respond to these complexities. An approach to security that requires staff to only follow a pre-determined series of actions will not be sufficient. A system that actively identifies the risks and empowers staff to understand their impact and how to manage them is required.
At this year’s AidEx Brussels, on 13th and 14th November 2019, GISF and Insecurity Insight will host two workshops on ensuring SRM is people-focused:
Day 1: Developing and Implementing People-focused Approaches to Ensure Effective Security Risk Management
November 13th 09.30 – 13.30 (including 30-minute break)
Day 2: Improving the Effectiveness of Security Risk Management through Staff-Friendly Incident Reporting
November 14th 09.30 – 13.30 (including 30-minute break)
You can register for one or both days here, where you will also find more information and a link to register for AidEx. Registration is free for all non-profit organisations.
