Partnerships

The increasingly complex global context in which Open Briefing operates means that collaboration with other organisations is important in order to increase our capacity and improve the quality and effectiveness of our work.

We follow the Principles of Partnership drawn up by the Global Humanitarian Platform to guide in the inception, development, implementation and review of our partnerships. We further protect our clients’ privacy and security by carefully vetting all potential partners and requiring them to sign non-disclosure agreements before we begin working together.

We work in close collaboration with several commercial and civil society partners with shared values to develop and deliver key services for our clients. Chief among these are:

We are also a certified partner of CybSafe and an official producer for Tangiers Insurance.

Open Briefing is also an active member of numerous civil society associations and networks, including the International NGO Safety and Security Association (INSSA), the Charities Security Forum, the UK Cyber Security Forum, the Humanitarian Practice Network, BOND, the Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action (ALNAP) and Social Enterprise UK. We are also a signatory of the Code of Conduct of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and NGOs in Disaster Relief.
