NGO Security Conference 2012, From Paper to Practice: Implementing Security
Submitted by Ebe Brons on April 6, 2012 - 3:27pm.
You have your security policy, country security plans, and security is (a part of your) your job. In practise however you meet resistance at head office or from the field, face conflicting priorities or otherwise feel that security is not high on everyone’s agenda. Getting security from paper into practice can be challenging.
Centre for Safety and Development presents: NGO Security Conference 2012, From Paper to Practice: Implementing Security, May 31, 2012
Over the past two decades, NGOs have stepped up their security management. Most have written security documents or are in the process of developing them. Security training provides staff and other stakeholders with the necessary skills to work in unsafe areas. But there are challenges; Boards and other high decision making organs may not see security as a high priority, limiting the amount of resources (notably time and money) that can be spent on it. Country offices work under pressure and face reporting deadlines regularly. This and other priorities tend to get in the way of the security measures that you feel are necessary to mitigate the risks field staff face.
This conference will try to challenge you, create a platform for discussion and encourages you to speak openly about the challenges you face when implementing security within your organisation.
