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.
Omar Mahammad is Community Mobilisation Coordinator with the NGO International Relief and Development (IRD) in Za’atari camp, Jordan - home to more than 80,000 Syrian refugees. He attended RedR’s ‘Protection’ training in October of this year. Here, Omar explains why it's so important that humanitarian staff working in Za'atari are well-versed in the principles of protection.
For the past six months, a wide range of actors have been working to develop the Sudan National Sanitation and Hygiene Strategic Framework, which will help to speed and scale up efforts to improve sanitation and hygiene services and practices across the country.

ABOUT THE COURSE
Aid agencies in recent urban emergencies have often lacked the ability to respond effectively in these environments. The urban context is much more complex than many rural or camp-focused emergencies, requiring specialist technical support to make immediate repairs to infrastructure that aid agencies don’t have the capacity to offer.
Threats to humanitarian aid workers have increased in recent years. The SIIM project aims to increase the availability of shared security incident data across the humanitarian sector, allowing humanitarian organisations to make more informed decisions when planning and implementing programmes.
This one-day workshop is an essential introduction for anyone interested in a career in the humanitarian sector. You will hear first hand experiences from individuals who have been involved in humanitarianism, learn about the nature of humanitarian relief, and look at the skills you have to bring to the sector.
Are you ready for the realities of relief work? Essentials of Humanitarian Practice will give you an insight into life working in the field. This workshop also aims to increase your understanding of the characteristics of emergencies induced by natural disasters and conflict and the requirements for an effective humanitarian response. You will learn how to work in a team in an emergency environment and identify individual responsibilities.
Given the insecure and often rapidly changing environments in which aid agencies work, safety and security management is not an optional extra.
This five-day intensive course will enable participants to identify the key requirements for managing security in complex emergencies and conflict zones by practicing essential techniques in risk management, security assessment and crisis response.The course draws on field case studies, the current humanitarian environment and the security management practices used by humanitarian bodies internationally.
