Event description


Human Resource professionals: What can security incident information do for you and your staff?

Improve your prevention and learning by better managing and using incident information in your daily-work.

Security-related incidents put the lives of aid workers and aid recipients at risk in addition to disrupting the flow of assistance to disaster-affected populations. The information we receive when dealing with all types of incidents is critical for supporting a timely and effective response, as well as for learning and preventing similar incidents in the future. This information should also be used by NGOs to better understand their context of operations, and take evidence-based decisions at a more strategic level.

This training recognises the integral role HR plays in managing incident information and looks at how informative incident information can be to enable a good response, prevent future incidents, spot trends and make better strategic decisions. By using the data to spot trends and implement changes to employment practices which support the health, safety and wellbeing of employees, HR and security staff will be able to communicate and collaborate in ensuring incident information is used to its full potential.

Aim of the training:

The aim of this training is to provide participants with an understanding of the importance of information arising from incidents, learn how to use the data available to strengthen their organisation’s preparedness and response to incidents involving their employees, and consider how this data could be beneficial to the wider NGO community.

Link with the SIIM project:

This course forms part of the broader programme on Security Incident Information Management (SIIM) project funded by ECHO. The project has included the development of the SIIM handbook, training and coaching for Security Focal Points as well as this series of trainings on incident information and analysis for other technical specialists within the sector. The aim of these trainings within the broader project is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the importance of security incident information across the organisation and allow all types of staff to be able to identify the information that is useful and access the information and analysis they require to fulfil their roles.

The programme is linked with the incident database run by Insecurity Insight which allows NGOs to share incident information between organisations at a global level, allowing for improved analysis for evidence based decision making.
