NGO SECURITY

 

Since the year 2000 the operational environment of Non-Governmental Organisations has become increasingly dangerous. Serious incidents ranging from murder, kidnapping, or violent attack are on the rise as are politically-motivated attacks against humanitarian workers.

In reaction to this unwelcome trend, Veritas has established a security unit to assist and support NGO organisations in developing policy, identifying appropriate resources and preparing effective responses. In addressing these security concerns we have developed a unique Security Management Training Course, which has been extensively delivered throughout Central Asia and East Africa, along with a Minimum Operating Security Standards and Security Standards for National and International Staff courses.

Our rigorous, systematic approach to risk management provides reassurance that all aspects of local, regional and international security have been identified, measured and integrated into our assessments and response initiatives.
