As a non-profit social enterprise dedicated to assisting those on the frontlines of civil society, we are always seeking ways to make our services more accessible for high-risk/low-capacity organisations and individuals. As such, we are delighted to announce that we are able to reduce the cost of our flagship Personal Security in Hostile Environments course by over £500 per person!
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 from 6 to 11 August in the United Kingdom.
Our flagship Hostile Environment, Remote Environment and First Aid Training (HEAT/HEFAT) course for NGO workers and journalists gives students the skills that they need to work safely and confidently in challenging situations.

Open Briefing is pleased to offer tenants of Development House in central London a cyber security survival workshop on 30 March 2017.

Open Briefing is running an advanced first aid course for NGOs, journalists, field workers and other civil society actors from 24 to 28 April. It is ideal for those working in remote or hostile areas, where the risk of life-threatening injuries is heightened and where medical evacuation could take considerable time to arrange. Students successfully completing the course will be awarded a QA Level 3 Certificate in First Response Emergency Care (QCF).
