Crowdguard often uses the phrase ‘protecting in partnership’. Their ethos is to nurture and promote collaboration and knowledge sharing so that all those involved in preventing attacks, improving vigilance and ensuring preparedness can learn from each other, contribute to best practice and, ultimately, keep people safer.
Now the company is to hold a free-of-charge knowledge-sharing certified CPD event that will combine expert talks with SCaN (See Check and Notify) training from a Counter Terrorist Policing North East representative. It will also include a chance to get to know the different types of HVM equipment available. The certified CPD programme will draw on the expertise of the Crowdguard team, along with sessions from guest speakers, as well as providing an opportunity to ask questions of the experts and network.
The free event will take place from 10am to 2.30pm on 7th February at Elland Road Stadium in Leeds, a location where Crowdguard has delivered Zone Ex protection on several occasions. The venue has the space needed to display a broad variety of HVM equipment and plenty of capacity for delegates.
The event will be suitable for anyone responsible for security at publicly accessible locations, along with security and counter terrorism professionals, health & safety officers and facilities managers and will include:
- A presentation on risk assessment from Crowdguard’s Counter Terror & Risk Assessment Director, Russ Phillips
- SCaN training from a Counter Terrorist Policing North East representative
- A presentation about balancing budget and risk from Crowdguard’s MD, Iain Moran
- A chance to see some of the HVM equipment Crowdguard offers
- An opportunity to network and ask questions of the experts
Crowdguard director, Deborah Ainscough comments: “While we may not always be able to prevent the worst from happening, we can take action on terrorism together by sharing insights and best practice to mitigate risk and improve resilience. At Crowdguard, we passionately believe that terror planning should be integral to event planning, and our goal is to help those responsible for PALs to deploy proportionate protection that is operationally deliverable, commercially viable, and aligned to threat, vulnerability and risk.”
Registration for Crowdguard’s free certified CPD – UK Terror Threats: how you can protect people and places is now open here and it promises to be a useful and enjoyable day.
