MANAGING RISK – COVID-19 AND LESSONS LEARNED FOR THE FUTURE OF RESPONSIBLE SECURITY
In Episode 2 of ICoCA’s Podcast Series ‘Future Security Trends: Implications for Human Rights’ we interview Richard Wylde, Director of Government and Defence at Control Risks and Chair of the UK Security in Complex Environments Group (SCEG) to discuss ‘Managing Risk: COVID-19 and Lessons Learned for the Future of Responsible Secutity’. Questions considered include:
- What implications do restrictions on international travel and lockdowns still in places in many countries mean for maintaining high standards across the private security sector when in-country visits and audits are no longer possible?
- What are the human rights implications around private security being deemed an essential service in many countries?
- Along with pandemics, what other trends should we be concerned about that might have implications for private security and human rights?
