Security management is a critical function for international NGOs, charities, foundations and universities to work properly in any location. Sometimes organisations will hire someone who is a full-time security manager. But, more often, security is managed by a project manager who is responsible for security alongside their other job functions. Or, it may be a volunteer or local organisation with whom security is managed in a consortium. No matter who is assigned these responsibilities it is crucial that they have the expertise and technical training to do their job well.

Too often they don’t receive this. Traditionally, security management training has meant 3-5 days out of work, travelling to international destinations to receive classroom-based, in-person training in English or French. National staff, local partners and grassroots organisations are rarely prioritised which exposes the organisation to multiple safety and security risks, compromising their organisational security, duty of care and programme delivery.
