 Business Continuity International 

Terrorism Planning:

The term "terrorism" means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against non-combatant targets by sub-national groups or clandestine agents, usually intended to influence an audience.

The term "international terrorism" means terrorism involving citizens or the territory of more than one country.

The term "terrorist group" means any group practicing, or that has significant subgroups that practice, international terrorism.  

Learn about the nature of terrorism.

* Terrorists look for visible targets where they can avoid detection before or after an attack such as international airports, large cities, major international events, resorts, and high-profile landmarks.

* Learn about the different types of terrorist weapons including explosives, kidnappings, hijackings, arson, and shooting

* Prepare to deal with a terrorist incident by adapting many of the same techniques used to prepare for other crises.

* Be alert and aware of the surrounding area. The very nature of terrorism suggests that there may be little or no warning.

* Take precautions when traveling. Be aware of conspicuous or unusual behavior. Do not accept packages from strangers. Do not leave luggage unattended.

* Learn where emergency exits are located. Think ahead about how to evacuate a building, subway or congested public area in a hurry. Learn where staircases are located.

Notice your immediate surroundings. Be aware of heavy or breakable objects that could move, fall or break in an explosion.

Anti Terrorism Planning

Analyzing the Terrorist Threat through Industrial Risk Assessment Methodologies

The risk of private industries becoming the target of a terrorist attack is increasing. As governmental assets become privatized, as industries explore new endeavors, and as data availability throughout the World Wide Web becomes more widespread, the “target list” of possible terrorist victims grows longer and longer.

To attempt to identify, analyze, and counter the threat posed by terrorists can be a daunting task. Companies that do not normally employ modern qualitative risk analysis techniques may not be aware that risk assessment methodologies can be used to significantly reduce the threat of terrorist attack.

The modern three-step qualitative risk analysis technique can be used to conduct internal corporate security analyses and determine specific protective recommendations. These recommendations, if implemented, can reduce the threat or effect of an attack by terrorists. When used properly, these techniques can be applied to attacks that use anything from electronic “hacking” cyberattacks, to conventional firearms, explosives, electronic means, kidnapping, sabotage, etc.

This three-step technique requires the active participation of everyone in the corporate infrastructure, through identifying areas or interests that are reasonably likely to be the targets of attack, determining the severity of such an attack, and then using the findings to mitigate or harden areas identified as vulnerable to attack.

In today’s society, the threat of terrorism is real and growing. Companies must be concerned about ensuring that they are safe from attack and that they can determine the proper controls that they must instigate to both reduce the threat of a terrorist attack, as well as mitigate the effects of such an attack. This methodology will assist companies in making honest and informed decisions in determining if they are, in fact, at risk, and how they can best bring their threat level down to more acceptable levels.
