Safety and Security in Human Rights Work
About Safety and Security Training
The Safety and Security in Human Rights Work training will equip you with the knowledge and skills to protect yourself, your team, your information, and the people whose rights you are trying to uphold from external threats. The modules on safety and security complement the Human Rights Monitoring Training and include key concepts related to security culture, personal security, psychological well-being, and digital security. The digital security modules will enable you to secure your information while in transit (communication) while at rest (in storage) and will enable you to stay safe while surfing the internet.
After completing all the modules, pass the final test to obtain your ODIHR training certificate.
Enjoy your learning!
