Tackling Terrorism - Project Argus
Project Argus is a National Counter Terrorism Security Office initiative, exploring ways to aid you in preventing, handling and recovering from a terrorist attack or critical incident.
Proefect Argus is a free event takes you through a terrorist attack using a multi-media simulation. A series of questions and challenges are put to you, both individually and as a group. You will work in small syndicate groups with other local business representatives and develop your responses to the attack. The whole event including a coffee break will last approximately three hours.
The event explores your options; what is likely to happen in the event of such a disaster; and what your priorities should be. Project Argus highlights the importance of being prepared and having the necessary plans in place to help.

"Extremely informative and professionally delivered".
"Many lessons were learnt by everyone who attended"
