Counter Terrorism In The Corporate & Private Sector

CP-SIIG’s service providers are at the cutting edge in dealing with counter terrorism. With the ever increasing threat of terrorism, both public and private sector face an imperative need to understand, predict and mitigate risk for employees and organisational assets. Areas of specific vulnerability include:

  • Multi–storey office towers
  • Airports
  • Shipping ports
  • Shopping centres
  • Movie theatres
  • Storage facilities
  • Mining sites
  • Shipping ports
  • Container terminals
  • Schools
  • Corporate functions and trade fairs

CP-SIIG recognises drastic changes to the political landscape that have occurred throughout the past decade, resulting in legislative responsibilities for organisations both in the public and private sector. These responsibilities include understanding terrorism and mitigating risk to the organisation and employees by way of implementing a proactive plan addressing all facets of the threat.

No matter the geographical positioning of your organisation, the multi facet and dynamic threat of terrorism remains constant. In fact, it is the lower profile targets with lower levels of security awareness that may appear to be the softer target to a potential terrorist.

In addition to the terrible loss of life, recent criminal and terrorism events have highlighted the losses that can be potentially sustained by corporations. As with other natural and man-made hazards, financial coverage and insurance may not be available or affordable to protect the financial assets of an organisation when faced with a terrorist threat.

Identifying, managing and mitigating risk associated with the threat of terrorism can be a daunting task for any organisation. The most common questions usually encompass around how to begin to develop a risk management and a risk mitigation program.
