Join us in Panama on 27 July for a workshop on partnerships and security risk management (SRM)!
This workshop, held in Spanish, will give attendees the opportunity to have open and honest conversations about SRM and explore how to manage security risks in an equitable way within partnerships.
Open to representatives of local, national and international NGOs who hold security and/or partnerships responsibilities, we strongly encourage INGO and NGO staff who are already partners to attend the workshop together, but also welcome individual participants.
We are looking for a national NGO to contribute to a session during the Partnerships workshop, particularly one that is familiar with the joint action guide. If you know of a suitable NGO, please reach out to Tara at email@example.com, or Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The GISF Blog: exploring the latest issues affecting humanitarian security
Staff's personal profiles have a direct impact upon the risks that they face when delivering aid work. Inclusive humanitarian security risk management is therefore critical if we hope to keep LGBTQIA+ aid workers safe.
In this blog, Research & Communications Assistant Scarlett Moore spoke to Reylynne Dela Paz from Plan International about the different risks faced by LGBTQIA+ aid workers, and how we can create a culture of respect that fosters the security of all aid workers.
Participate in our new research project about security in a digital world.
We have started our work on the GISF 2022 Priority Topic and want to hear from you about what you’d like to see as part of this new research. Please get in touch with Chiara at email@example.com to share your thoughts!
By identifying the ways in which ‘race’, racism, ethnicity, and nationality affect the security of staff and organisations, this new GISF article seeks to encourage further conversations. The article also provides a number of recommendations for organisations to improve their SRM practices and enable inclusive security.
This meeting will support coordination and collaboration efforts on SRM in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Region, through capacity sharing, information dissemination and relationship building. We are looking for a national NGO to contribute to a session during the Partnerships workshop, particularly one that is familiar with the joint action guide. If you know of a suitable NGO, please reach out to Tara at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Dan at email@example.com.

At this year's HNPW, GISF continued to lead on the Area of Common Concern 'Integrating Security Risk Management Across Humanitarian Action'. Throughout the event, we explored some of the most pressing issues affecting humanitarian SRM, such as inclusivity, effective donorship, changes in technology and incident management.
If you missed any of the sessions, recordings and summaries are now available!
This webinar launched GISF’s new NGO Security Toolbox. The developer of the toolbox, Shaun Bickley, together with INSSA board chair Javeria Malik, showed security and non-security professionals the easy ways in which the toolbox can be used to develop NGO’s security risk management capacity.
The toolbox enables both security specialists and non-security staff to access practical resources and tools on the go, and helps them put in place basic safety and security measures quickly, without having to start from scratch.
To uncover the human and political costs of the disinformation campaign around Syria, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) and The Syria Campaign conducted the most comprehensive deep dive into Syrian disinformation to date.
