Conference Description:

The increasing range and improved usage of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) is one of the main factors in highlighting the need to combat the military threat posed by such devices. SMi Group provides a CPD accredited masterclass which helps those at the centre of dealing with this problem and enables first responders, security professionals to discuss the new challenges facing them and how develop strategies for them.

This event covers an extensive range of topics and provides an in-depth analysis of the threat posed by a dual attack on a city centre environment and transport hub. The masterclass is headed by an expert, who has most recently conducted a counter-terrorist review for the British Museum, from which he produced current procedures and plans. Developing an effective counter-terrorist strategy is all the more important now given that the nature of terrorist attacks is varied and unpredictable e.g. hostage taking, shootings, bombings.

Gaining a deeper understanding into the ever-changing threat posed by terrorists and formulating strategies to negate some of the danger of a dual attack situation will help militaries, first responders and risk professionals prepare for these types of terrorist activities and lessen fatalities in ideal terrorist attack areas. The evolving nature of terrorist attacks, like what occurred in Mumbai 2008, further highlights the fickle nature of the terrorist threat, particularly from a dual attack scenario.

Benefits of attending SMi’s CPD accredited masterclass Transport and Infrastructure Defence masterclass:

Upon completion of this Masterclass, through a combination of presentations and interactive discussion, you will:

•Acquire an understanding of how important it is to react appropriately to initial intelligence reports, ensuring that panic amongst the general public is kept to a minimum while dealing with potential multiple threats.
•Gain an insight from the lessons learned from previous terrorist attacks and how to implement counter-terrorist strategies to maximum effect.
•Discuss and share ideas on formulating strategies to negate at least some of the danger of a distinct, concurrent terrorist attack
•Learn from an extremely experienced Masterclass leader with over two decades of experience and in-depth knowledge in close protection and counter-terrorism.
