RUSI and ACTIS have developed a policy-based online executive training in corporate security and counter-terrorism.
The vast majority of British industry leaders are not ready for future terrorist attacks according to expert analysis of a new online study. ACTIS, the online education specialists in the fields of counter-terrorism, terrorism, intelligence and security studies believe over 80% of those surveyed would fail a simple counter-terrorism preparedness test, possibly leaving them and their staff at risk, following a YouGov survey of over 600 British business leaders.
To address these vulnerabilities ACTIS and RUSI have developed a policy-based online executive training in corporate security and counter-terrorism. The flexible, e-learning courses, some of which are free, are aimed at individual security professionals, local and international companies, and executives within government agencies and the wider public sector. They will also be of interest to diplomats, journalists or industry commentators looking to improve their understanding of national security policy. The courses, which also include cyber defence as well as physical security modules aim to help students understand the threats their organisations and staff face, and the appropriate measures required to reduce their exposure to risk.
As a first step UK industry leaders can benchmark their preparedness through a new ‘threat-readiness’ self-assessment tool – available online here.
