Security for the UN, for a better world.




To enable United Nations system operations
through trusted security leadership and solutions. 




What is the UNSMS?


The goal of the United Nations Security Management System (UNSMS) is to enable the activities of UNSMS organizations within acceptable levels of security risk.



What We Do


UNDSS provides security expertise to all United Nations Security Management System entities, to enable the planning and safe conduct of mandates, missions, activities and programmes of the United Nations system, while ensuring the safety and security of personnel and the security of United Nations premises and assets.


Where We Are


UNDSS is present in over 125 countries. Security is crucial to all UN programmes, so UNDSS works wherever the UN has a footprint. In addition, UNDSS personnel are deployed on surge missions where necessary.
