Let’s face it, explaining how to do Business Impact Analyses (BIAs) can be pretty dull, while Counter Terrorism is much more interesting to many of us.
If you’re in the US or the UK – or fancy a visit to either – you might want to think about checking out the Counter Terror Expos taking place in 2012.
While they’re aimed chiefly at Security professionals, even briefly viewing some of the content and exhibitors can provide you with a bit of new knowledge and an increased understanding of Security issues. Security and Business Continuity can often be very closely linked.
The London one happens first, in April at Olympia in London. The US Expo happens in May, in Washington DC.
UK Counter Terror Expo
The UK Expo is on April 25-26 2012 at Olympia, London – see www.CounterTerrorExpo.com.
The Conference brochure can be downloaded here. It features five streams: Cyber Security and Electronic Terrorism; The Cost of Terrorism to Business – Best Practice Risk Assessment; Global Counter Terrorism; Protecting Crowded Places; (CNi) Critical National Infrastructure Security. The full conference costs £349 for one day and £549 for two days.
You may, of course, prefer not to pay for the conference but just visit the Expo, which is free. Information on the free workshops and live demonstrations is available. However, you do need to pre-register. For security reasons, there will be no admittance without a pre-registration on the day.
