Businesses and security professionals are increasingly concerned about delivering their employees and customers a professional level in 'duty of care' in countering terrorism. This course formally educates and accredits attendees in understanding and potentially mitigating terrorism events in and around their premises and events. It is applicable to all first-responders, police personnel and security professionals in any international territory, particularly those facing potential new legislation, such as the Protection of Premises Bill (Martyn's Law) in the UK or various legal revisions elsewhere.   

The Global Terrorism Index reports that there are some 5,000 terror attacks each year spread across some 120 countries. Attack motivations are varied (religious, political, homophobic, incel) and security events are almost always pre-planned providing significant preventative and incident response opportunities for qualified, well-informed, professionals.  

This crucial counter-terrorism course leads with five sections covering:

  1. Contemporary nature of terrorism – roots of terrorism; international terrorism and its evolution; case studies and typologies of method and motivation; People, Targets and Magnets; Laws, definitions and categorizations. Counter-terrorism legislation including the potential ‘Martyn’s Law’
  2. Profiling, decision-making and motivations – motivations, types and planning cycle of perpetrators. Religious, political, homophobic and incel. Lone Actors, Group Settings
  3.  Securing the Attack Surface – securing buildings with case study; securing personnel with case study; cyber security and case studies; Convergence and integrating physical, information systems and personnel security and working through the ISO 27001 Annex of physical security environment security controls
  4. Business Continuity Planning and Impacts – BCP guidance and planning; policies, processes and implementation; adding ‘people’ into the plan; aligning BCP to holistic organizational resilience.
  5. Responding and Recovery – Crisis Management; Crisis Communications; Incident Response including Information Systems; Risk Frameworks and framing ‘risk’ appetite; Threat Intelligence and the ‘Intelligence Cycle’.
