Importance of Media Safety Advisors in Complex Environments - Ukraine and Israel


Media Safety Advisors (MSA) plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety and security of journalists and reporters operating in complex and high-risk environments. In this case study, we will explore the significance of MSA services in two specific regions: Ukraine and Israel. MSAs enable news agencies like Sky News, BBC, and CNN to cover stories in these challenging locations with confidence and peace of mind through their expertise and support.

2. Security Planning and Logistics

The MSA collaborates with Sky News to develop a security plan, including secure transportation, safe accommodation, and secure communication channels.

3. Personal Protection

The MSA provides journalists with personal protective equipment (e.g., body armor, helmets) and trains them in its proper use.

4. Local Contacts and Knowledge

The MSA leverages its network of local contacts and expertise to provide real-time updates, on-ground intelligence, and guidance on navigating the complex environment.

5. Emergency Response

Sky News successfully covers the conflict in Ukraine, thanks to the presence and support of the MSA. Journalists can focus on reporting the story while relying on the MSA's expertise in navigating the complex security landscape.

The Situation: Israel

BBC is planning to send a team of reporters to cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, an environment marked by political tensions, protests, and occasional outbreaks of violence.


MSA Intervention

2. Secure Movement and Access 

The MSA assists BBC in planning secure movements, ensuring safe access to sensitive areas, and coordinating with local authorities to navigate checkpoints and roadblocks.

3. Conflict Sensitivity Training

4. Crowd Management

The MSA advises on crowd management techniques and provides support during protests or public gatherings to ensure the safety of the BBC team.


5. First Aid and Medical Support

The MSA ensures that the team has access to adequate medical support, including training in basic first aid and assistance in establishing local medical contacts.



BBC's reporting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is enhanced by the presence of the MSA. The journalists can focus on their work, knowing that they have a dedicated team ensuring their safety and well-being in a complex and potentially volatile environment.



The case studies of Ukraine and Israel highlight the crucial role played by Media Safety Advisors in enabling news agencies like Sky News, BBC, and CNN to cover stories in complex environments. MSAs provide comprehensive risk assessments, personalized security planning, on-ground support, and emergency response protocols. By entrusting their safety to MSAs, journalists and reporters can concentrate on their reporting duties, ensuring the delivery of accurate and impactful news to the global audience.
