About the author



This resource examines key subjects critical for understanding an organisation’s risk exposure and deploying measures to effectively tackle the challenges posed by Terrorism & Hybrid Threats.

By delving into these topics extensively, businesses can cost effectively enhance their preparedness and take proactive steps to mitigate potential risks in the ever-evolving security environment of today.

Organisational situational awareness is integral to business resilience. It denotes a company’s capacity to grasp and address prevailing internal and external occurrences, circumstances, and trends that influence its operations and objectives, or compliance obligations.

The collection, analysis, and distribution of pertinent information empower decision-makers to comprehend the present landscape and execute informed decisions.

Seventeen years ago, six terrorism trends were identified, drawing the focus of security and resilience professionals towards assessing and enhancing security measures. Looking back over the past two decades within the United Kingdom, we can indeed observe how these trends have manifested in various acts of terrorism.

Despite this evident connection, it raises the question of why it has taken so long to start the process of implementing private sector terrorism mitigation and impending laws that place a legal duty on the private sector to protect organisations and society effectively.

Relying solely on the state to provide all means of protection is increasingly viewed as an outdated and inadequate approach.
