NGO Security Toolbox

Our Partner Global Interagency Security Forum (GISF) has just released an NGO Security Toolbox, a useful online resource that offers easily accessible NGO security resources, tools, and templates. The toolbox enables both security specialists and non-security staff to access practical resources and tools and helps them put in place basic safety and security measures without having to start from scratch. This toolbox is particularly useful for small or medium-sized organisations and programmes developing their Security Risk Management (S.R.M.) processes, so please share the toolbox with individuals and organisations you know are looking to develop their SRM capacity.

The resources within the toolbox are drawn from GISF's own guides, research papers and articles, together with leading guidance within the sector, and valuable examples and templates shared by GISF's members. All resources in the toolbox are free to use and can be adapted to suit your organisation or your operational context.
