As part of Counter Terrorism Awareness Week 2017, SecuriGroup has been sharing information on a range of subjects, from crowded places guidance to postal threat. As we wrap up the week, we have compiled the best sources for counter terrorism intelligence which can help businesses and individuals stay abreast of threats and prepare for an attack:
NaCTSO Website: The National Counter Terrorism Security Office website is where key advice and information regarding best practice for counter terrorism is shared. Checking this platform on a regular basis will allow you to stay abreast of any new information, strategies, or guidance. Most of these are available to download as PDFs, making them easy to share with partners, clients, and staff.
Visit the NaCTSO Website here.
Counter Terrorism Policy Page: The government's website contains a useful feed of recent counter terrorism-related resources and documents. From it, you can access press releases, guidance documents, news stories, and much more. It also allows you to subscribe to an email alert which will let you know when a document about the government's counter terrorism policy is published or updated.

CitizenAID App: CitizenAID is a free app, developed by military and medical experts, outlining the actions you should take in case of a shooting, stabbing or bomb explosion. It contains information on how to react safely, effectively communicate with emergency services, prioritise the injured, and perform life-saving first aid. By encouraging both staff and the general public to download and familiarise themselves with the app, businesses can empower people to be prepared in case of an attack and potentially even save lives.

SecuriGroup believes in the power of effective intelligence sharing amongst businesses to strengthen the society in which we live against the threat of terrorism. As well as publishing content on our blog, we also share key information from a variety of sources – including NaCTSO, City of London Police, and Project Griffin – through regular emails. In case of an attack, we also share reactive information on the situation, which allows our clients and partners to stay abreast of the latest security updates.
