  • Major Incident Tabletop Workshop - Counter Terrorism Training

    10.00 - 12.00 Wednesday 3 February 2021

    Major Incident Tabletop Workshop - Counter Terrorism Training

    Following on from last year’s successful Tabletop exercise, we are pleased to host our annual area-wide event to continue our work to increase resilience in the area. This online, interactive session will allow you to review your response to a large-scale incident and examine the extent to which your current plans address the actions required to support a return to normality.

    The exercise will examine the organisational response to a conventional and escalating major incident, such as a large-scale protest involving significant disorder and widespread disruption affecting your business and the wider area.  Against this backdrop, the scenario will also provide the chance to explore cyber security vulnerabilities resulting from the move to increased remote working and how the risks of data leaks and the impact on organisational reputation can be addressed.

    Although open to all BakerStreetQ members, those staff with responsibilities for physical or information security, business continuity and crisis response will particularly benefit from the session, which will provide the opportunity to discuss and share best practice in an appropriately confidential environment as well as incorporating a practical demonstration of the BakerStreetQ Incident Alerts platform.
