Major Event Security at Security & Counter Terror Expo

Major Events Security at Security & Counter Terror ExpoPlaces of mass gathering not only present terrorists with potential opportunities for large scale casualties and high impact media coverage, they pose a broad range of security challenges for their owners and operators.

Recently we have seen terrorists target crowded places and Major events with devastating effect. The threat against sporting events from IS and other Islamist militant groups is set to remain a long-term concern.

Attacks involving the use of bladed weapons, tools, and even vehicles, as well as single active shooters, improvised explosive device (IED) attacks in various forms, or a coordinated attack as seen in Paris involving multiple gunmen, are considered the most likely form of terrorism against a sporting event.

Security & Counter Terror Expo will provide a unique platform for those tasked with protecting major events and crowded places from terrorism.
