Project Argus is an initiative led by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO)
It asks businesses and other organisations to consider their preparedness for a terrorist attack.
It achieves this by guiding people through a simulated multi-media attack which identifies the measures that can assist in preventing, handling and recovering from such an incident.
The workshop has been specifically designed to work with retailer premises and will provide a unique opportunity to learn how to protect your premises, your selves, your staff and your customers.
We have booked a session at the Council Chambers in Bexley Civic Centre on Wednesday 7th February 2018.
09:00hrs – Registration
09:30hrs – Chief Inspector Alan Duncan will open the event with a few words.
11:00hrs – Refreshment break
12:30hrs – Finish
The session is free and aimed at management level/decision makers within the retail sector rather than frontline staff.
It will be delivered by an experienced Met Police Counter Terrorism Security Advisor (CTSA)
An Argus session was delivered (by the same CTSA) to Borough Market shortly before the terrorist attacks in June.
Feedback from local business suggests the advice given was instrumental in reducing casualties on the night and speeding economic recovery post attack.
This session is a fantastic opportunity for managers to test individual critical incident and continuity planning whilst sharing learning/best practice in a safe environment.
Representatives from the London Borough of Bexley Emergency Planning and Business Continuity Team will be present to answer questions and assist with contingency planning.
