Description

What best practices should be considered when looking at risk profiling and how can it benefit your Duty of Care whilst operating in complex environments.

Agenda

Spearfish will be holding a panel led webinar later this month. Its MD Dan Hooton will be joined by Tara Arthur who recently published a paper with GISF on the impact of ‘race’, ethnicity and nationality on aid workers’ security. Spearfish also is pleased to welcome Kabir Adamu onto the panel, Kabir is one of Nigeria’s leading subject matter experts on security.

The panel will be discussing risk profiling as part of an individual’s duty of care operating in a complex environment. Speakers will also look at how risk alerts can be tailored to an individual’s profile, activity and geolocation and insights into how the use of resources from technology and academic partners can be leveraged in a commercial context.
