BUSINESS SECURITY ADVICE

Terrorism is a major threat for businesses. Terrorist groups may seek to cause harm to the economy as a whole by attacking business premises or they may seek to attack specific businesses to advance their political agendas. The threat is not confined to the UK; companies that do business overseas may also be targeted.

Businesses can reduce the risk to themselves, their employees and customers by remaining vigilant, being security minded and having good security measures in place. A small investment in security measures helps to protect businesses against crime and make the work of terrorists more difficult.

Advice on business security measures can be obtained from the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO), a specialist police organisation that works closely with the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI). Dedicated Counter Terrorism Security Advisers (CTSAs) are located in each of the UK's regional police forces. They provide protective and counter terrorism security advice to support businesses and reduce their sites' vulnerability to terrorist threats. The advice they provide takes into account both conventional and non-conventional terrorist techniques. The CTSAs work closely with other police forces throughout the country, Government departments and other agencies.

Contact details for your nearest CTSA are available via www.gov.uk.
