What You Will Learn

The INSSA Security Risk Management Professional Program includes two certifications:

  1. The Country level certification exam is more tactical and is designed for security focal points and security management with a mandate for one country office.

  2. After becoming certified at the Country level, you will be eligible to take the Regional level certification exam which is more strategic and applies to security management with responsibility for more than one country office.

The exams assess competency in the following areas: 

  • Risk Assessment 

  • Principles, Policies and Protocols 

  • Leadership, Management and Implementation 

  • Critical Incident Response

DisasterReady is pleased to offer free resources to help you prepare and maintain certification as an NGO Security Risk Management Professional.

The exams are free and provided in English, French, Spanish, and Arabic. Translations in French and Spanish were made possible through generous donations from CRS and Lockton Companies.

Learner Review

“This was a test of my professional experience. I didn’t know if my knowledge of country level security management was globally applicable. Receiving the email that I passed was a very exciting moment for me, because it was a tangible proof that I am a security professional.”
