Mitigation Strategies for Vehicle Borne Threats

13-Nov-2017 - 14-Nov-2017


This 2-day in-depth and hands-on workshop is designed to help delegates gain a strategic understanding of how to formulate a coherent strategy based upon International Standards and best practices of mitigation measures for vehicle borne threats.  This workshop will also consider the issues for deploying vehicle mitigation measures within the built environment.

To enhance delegates’ learning experience, each day’s taught sessions is followed by discussion and exercises preparation.

What you will learn from this workshop:

  • Distinguish different methods of attack.
  • Determine the constraints for planning vehicle mitigation measures.
  • Learn how to define the strategy for deployment.
  • Gain in-depth understanding of the process for selection and deployment of physical controls.
  • Master the process for developing procedural controls for the operation of physical controls.
  • Recognise security risk and credible threat.
  • Identify site constraints affecting possible mitigative measures.
  • Apprehend the dynamics of potential vehicle impact.
  • Understand the use of landform to reduce impact velocity.
  • Recognise third party standards, testing regimes and product types.
  • Apply the above in a practical exercise setting.

Trainer 1 is a highly skilled security strategist who applies the principles of Secured by Design effectively alongside his extensive industry knowledge and experience to add value to projects through developing clear and effective strategic security intent, integrating innovative physical controls, technical measures and procedural responses applied at reasonable cost in relation to identified risks. He drives projects to completion; ensuring security control systems are delivered to implementation and operation. Operating with ease in multi-disciplinary environments he liaises with architectural and engineering teams applying design solutions for changing threats, using a risk based approach. This ensures crime prevention and physical asset protection are considered at the earliest stages, achieving significant savings and value through effective specification.

Trainer 1 specialises in protection of crowded spaces, such as mixed-use developments, sports venues, universities, hotels and shopping complexes. Consideration of behavioural aspects, through application of his social and criminological studies enables Trainer 1 to implement Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design. This seeks to reduce the occurrence of and impacts of Crime and Anti-Social behaviour and improve the experience for target segment customers. Trainer 1 has worked on projects around the world and was the lead security designer for the London 2012 Stadium.

Trainer 2 is a Security Design Strategist. In the last four years, he has been involved in the security design of three first class football stadium, a railway station, a student campus, a group of London theatres and an iconic tourist venue.

Prior to this he had 20 years practice as a police crime prevention officer and crime prevention design advisor in London. He was senior crime prevention design advisor to Metropolitan Police Specialist Operations. Trainer 2 draws upon extensive experience with the Metropolitan Police, and holds internal UK Government Home Office qualifications in crime prevention and counter-terrorism design techniques alongside independent academic qualifications in crime prevention and environmental design. He is used to working in environments requiring confidentiality and has been vetted to 'SC' level.

Case Studies

The World Trade Centre 1993 bombing

Iconic static target: Home-made explosive delivered by encroachment during the “business as usual” phase of activity-how practical is eternal vigilance? How and where could countermeasures be deployed?

Nice attack: Promenade des Anglais, Bastille Day 2016

Vehicle attack on a national public occasion/ example of attack method displacement where control measures had limited access to explosives -can we predict which potential targets to protect?. How do we define the target in these circumstances-what mitigation could be used and what might be practical?

The London 2012 Olympics

A practical exercise with maps of a massive complex target, this exercise will consider the three phases of construction, event and legacy focussing on access in the urban landscape, critical assets and crowded places.

London Borough Market Attack

An opportunity to discuss changing attack methodologies and opportunities to reduce their effect in a practical context.
