Ensuring Security Risk Management is People-Focused: Insights and Tools for Effective Security Risk Management
|Date||13 Nov 2019 — 14 Nov 2019|
|Address||Brussels Expo Hall 11, Place de Belgique 1, 1020 Bruxelles, Belgium|
Workshops Organised by: GISF and Insecurity Insight, with support of AidEx.
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 to manage them is required.
Please note: workshops participants must also be registered to attend AidEx. See the bottom of this page for more information.
