About this handbook
Security incident information management (SIIM) is the collection, reporting, recording, analysis, sharing and use of information (including data) linked to a security incident.
Security incident information management is a key part of an organisation’s broader security risk management, which aims to support organisational security in order to ultimately improve access to populations in need.
RedR UK’s recent use of simulation in its training has demonstrated that there is a strong argument for the value of this methodology. A new learning paper aims to outline the benefits.

It is funded by EU Humanitarian aid and aims to strengthen humanitarian responses to crises by building the capacity of NGOs to undertake speedier security related information management and sharing through the Security in Numbers database (SiND) which is part of Insecurity Insight’s Aid in Danger project.
Trainers in the humanitarian sector ensure aid workers are equipped with the skills and knowledge required to deliver successful humanitarian programmes. By passing on their wisdom and experiences through effective training techniques, humanitarians can extend the impact of their work to future projects and generations. This intensive course combines theory and practice to help participants understand the fundamentals of training and facilitation, and develop competencies to increase their efficiency as trainers.
Improving the quality of humanitarian practice and ensuring the effectiveness of responses to complex emergencies is a key aim shared by humanitarian agencies. Thus, monitoring and evaluation are essential activities for any project or programme. Careful monitoring of progress against targets allows timely changes to be made to maximise impact. Evaluation ensures accountability to all parties concerned, and allows learning to be carried through to future interventions.
It is essential for organisations to have the capacity to design, write, and deliver high quality project proposals and reports. This course will focus on the aspects that make proposals effective and successful, will introduce participants to best practices in proposal writing, and help them to develop the knowledge and skills needed to improve their efficacy in writing, presenting, and defending proposals. It will also cover report writing and will equip participants with the skills and techniques needed to write clear and engaging reports.
