A year ago today, we launched a range of new security risk management services and training for NGOs working in dangerous places. Twelve months on, and we need your support to continue our vital work protecting those who protect others. Please consider making a donation to Open Briefing today.
As part of our commitment to spreading good security practice throughout the human rights and humanitarian communities, Open Briefing has today launched the Security Risk Assessment Tool (SRAT). SRAT is an essential free resource for both experienced NGO security managers and those new to security risk assessments. You can download SRAT for free today.
Open Briefing understands the cyber security threats that NGOs face and the internal vulnerabilities and lack of resources that put them at risk in today's interconnected world. We now offer NGOs cyber security audits, innovative online training and one-, three- and five-day courses to help them mitigate cyber security risks in a cost-effective manner.
Effective security risk management is the key to keeping staff and partners safe while working in increasingly violent contexts and within increasingly restricted civic spaces. Open Briefing now offers NGOs and charities free 3-hour workshops covering duty of care, security risk assessments, security plans, crisis management and more.
Our flagship Personal Security in Hostile Environments (HEAT/HEFAT) course for NGO workers and journalists gives students the skills that they need to work safely and confidently in challenging situations and violent environments. Please register your interest now for a course running 6-11 September 2017 in the United Kingdom.

Over the last 12 months, Open Briefing has undertaken a diverse range of new activities in a short amount of time, which has required a considerable degree of internal organisational focus. We are proud that during this time we have managed to maintain the level of external activity that we have. We have now published our annual report for 2016-17, which outlines some of our key successes.
Due to an increase in the number of enquiries Open Briefing is receiving about safety and security from human rights organisations and other NGOs, we urgently need to recruit three highly-experienced security risk management consultants to help organisations develop effective security management systems and risk assessment procedures to ensure the safety of staff in the field.
