There are few industries that require an in-depth understanding of security management as much as the oil and gas sector. Personal safety aside, the risks of theft, terrorism, environmental damage and reputational impact are some very real problems which can have devastating effects to organisations all over the world.

Drawing on case studies from around the globe, the course addresses some of the more complex risks associated with the oil and gas industry in a range of environments and examines the risks in upstream and downstream operations.

Delivered by trainers with extensive operational security experience in the Oil and Gas sector, the online course examines and develops risk management theory and applies this to the modules delivered.

Utilising elements of the ANSI/API STD 780 Security Risk Assessment Methodology and additional resources, the training highlights the spectrum of risk elements that have the potential to impact upon security management operations, experienced by security practitioners in the sector. This means that you can be assured that the qualification you will receive has the credibility of being provided by experts in the field.
