    Course Overview:

    Evosecs Security Management Training course is based on materials and approaches developed by UNHCR’s Field Safety Section for the training of UNHCR managers deploying to insecure environments. The materials have been modified by Evosec & the ISAB to apply to a wide range of humanitarian organisations, NGOs, aid agencies and organisations operating in conflict and post conflict environments. The Security Risk Assessment (SRA) model is based principally on that of the United Nations Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS). Other tools and materials have been drawn from various text, on-line, and other training resources, with due attribution to the original source wherever possible.

    The aim of the security management course is to introduce managers of humanitarian, development and commercial projects in insecure areas to the techniques and tools of managing risk. Emphasis is placed on three principle areas of concern: security risk assessment, security plans and planning, and critical incident management.

    There are several assessments throughout the course including multiple choice questions, short answer questions and assignments. The assignments will be graded by a tutor who will give you feedback on each of your answers.

    This course is designed to be informative and build up the concepts associated with security and risk management in insecure environments. If you would like further practical training you may be interested in Evosec’s other operational and organisational security training programmes.


    This course can be modified to suit individual organisations working withing a specific region, country or industry.

    • Policy and procedure development
    • Country specific risk assessments
    • Country specific legislation
