Responding to terrorist incidents: new course for security control room operators

The UK Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) is offering a new five day course to prepare organizations’ security control room operators to respond to terrorist incidents.

CPNI says that the ‘Responding to Terrorist Incidents – Security Control Room (SCR) Operators’ course was designed after deficiencies in organizational preparedness to attacks were identified in post incident reviews, exercises and simulations.

The course is specifically designed for operators who work in security control rooms within national infrastructure sites and crowded places. It is also valuable for those directly responsible for the SCR operators.

The course offers immersive exercises that simulate multiple terrorist incident scenarios, enabling delegates to practice decision-making in real-time, as if in a real control room.

Spaces are available for January 2023 onwards at locations across the UK.
