The education sector is at the cutting edge in the fight against terror. Whether it is Yates need to identify radicalization or protecting the students and building from an actual attack, there is much the industry needs to learn.
28th November, London Room (Theatre 2)
Schools are under-protected and are most certainly not providing adequate safeguarding from hostile incursion due to a over reliance on generic plans and the response times of emergency services.
The threat to schools is not sufficiently identified and is often underestimated, especially from angry parents or Child Protection issues that may and do escalate. There is an over-reliance on physical and technical security to over-match the intruder threat, and an under-investment in threat analysis and behavioural response to beat the identified risks. This presentation will detail the process by which the school-specific plan may be defined and implemented, focusing on behavioural response aligned to the specific peculiarities of each individual school.
