Much of Security Consortium International’s work involves surveying, auditing and designing buildings, facilities, banks and corporate organisations headquarters against terrorism.
Anti-Terrorist Threat Assessment and Survey
An anti-terrorist survey is carried out in exactly the same way as a building survey but with much more emphasis placed on terrorist groups and their method of operation in the particular country in question.
The threat assessment will identify threats to the business, the sector, location and staff and nationalities at risk and propose appropriate countermeasures. An anti-terrorist survey will look at the threats and risks from car bombs placed outside or near to the premises, bag or briefcase bombs brought into the premises and attacks by terrorist groups using automatic weapons with the aim of killing or capturing members of staff in their workplace.
This service is particularly important in areas such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Thailand, Colombia, Brazil, the Philippines, Iraq and also the UK and western Europe and Turkey all of which have suffered severe terrorist bombing and attack campaigns over recent years.
The survey will take particular account of methods of access control to properly identify staff and visitors before entering the facility and will use CCTV surveillance, video motion detection and may also use biometric access control cards or facial recognition and provision for staff vetting, including environmental design.
It will also include a visitors’ access control procedure involving proper identification of visitors and procedures to escort and control them while on site.
The plan will consider parking areas around buildings or facilities and the necessary distance or stand-off to reduce the level of damage caused by car bombs and to ensure they cannot be parked directly next to a building.
The survey will also consider the searching of visitors and goods inwards to any facility using explosives sniffing detectors, metal detection arches and other specialised equipment to record number plates, under-car surveillance and the control of access to car park areas particularly those underneath buildings.
Building strengthening and hardening against blast will also be considered as will designs and measures to reduce the damage and casualties caused by glass in explosions such as the use of film and blast absorption materials for buildings at high risk.
Anti-terrorism procedures including personnel and vehicle searches are also absolutely critical in high security information and training and procedures and the specification of equipment to achieve these objectives can also be supplied. Our anti-terrorist experience covers airfields, government offices, government regulators, oil and gas, buildings, banks, commercial organisations, ports, harbours, ships, communication centres, computer centres and nuclear facilities.
Our Training Courses will give methods of threat assessment, building hardening, business continuity, crisis management and how to spot terrorist reconnaisance of your facility as a target
