Terrorism Threat Level Raised

Following the attack in Manchester this week, the Security Industry Authority have released the following statement:

The independent Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) has raised the threat level for international terrorism in the UK to CRITICAL. This means that their assessment is not only that an attack remains highly likely but a further attack may be imminent.

If you see or hear anything that could be terrorist-related trust your instincts and call the anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321

Please refresh the knowledge of staff that have received either Project Griffin or Project Argus training and deploy staff who have received training in behavioural detection (where you have them).

The London Regional Counter Terrorism Protective Security Unit have provided further guidance and recommendations for businesses and security staff.

We also recommend that security operatives refresh themselves with how to be vigilant by watching the video ‘Personnel security - Eyes Wide Open’ by the Centre for the Protection for National Infrastructure (CPNI).

Watch the video: Personnel Security - Eyes Wide Open

Project Griffin (counter terrorism training for security operatives) 
Project Argus (counter terrorism training to protect a business or an organisation).
