Countering Terrorism, Violence and Emerging Threats

Apr 18, 2016 - Apr 20, 2016

Counter Terrorism Violence

The Countering Terrorism, Violence and Emerging Threat Workshop will provide delegates with a holistic view of best practices to counter the threat of terrorism, focusing on prevention, protection, response, and recovery strategies. The recommended methodology is based on more than 35 years in the security and law enforcement fields, including the United States Secret Service and the National Basketball Association.

You will learn if your operations are safe, secure, and compliant based on industry best practices, such as information collection, sharing intelligence, evaluating operations, conducting training exercises, and designing appropriate strategies. Because you want the response to become second nature so that under duress, you can calmly and appropriately react, training is the most efficient way to prepare for an emergency situation. The goal of this workshop is to present relevant subject matter to countering terrorism and to contribute to the development of the audience’s knowledge in these disciplines.

What will you learn:

  • Influence improvements to organisational security and safety processes
  • Provide enhancements to security plans, policies and procedures
  • Identify required physical security measures, such as vehicle barriers, window film, locking devices, signage and intercoms
  • Execute proper liaison with first responders, particularly law
  • Heighten monitor-and-respond incident response plan for nefarious activities in and around the access
  • Develop emergency preparedness and contingency plans sufficient to respond to and manage all types of crises
