TINYg, THE not-for-profit global counter-terrorism information network, has unveiled the programme for its Summer 2022 Corporate Security and Protect Duty Conference, which takes place from noon until 5.30 pm on Wednesday 1 June at MediaCityUK in Manchester.
Keynote speaker on the day will be Dean Haydon (Deputy Assistant Commissioner at the Metropolitan Police Service).
There’s also going to be a panel discussion featuring several industry leaders including Russ Jackson (former Assistant Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police who led the Public Inquiry into the Manchester Arena terrorist attack), Jason Hallahan (head of the London Ambulance Service’s counter-terrorism operations), Simon Adair (director of safety, security and resilience at the BBC), Steven Kenny (industry liaison for architecture and engineering at network surveillance solutions specialist Axis Communications), Jason Towse (managing director of Mitie’s security operation) and Barry Palmer (head of security and Health and Safety at Tate Museums).
Duty of Care
While the fight against terrorism and extremism is primarily a matter for Governments and law enforcement organisations, employers also have a duty of care to their employees, customers and shareholders alike to mitigate risks and ensure that, in the event of a catastrophic incident of any kind, they are well prepared for the consequences and have trained and supported their staff and briefed and prepared their operations appropriately.
Both natural and man-made disasters are here to stay and, although largely unpredictable, it’s not acceptable for corporations to be unprepared. TINYg has been working with corporations, law enforcement authorities and Governments since its launch in 2006 and boasts a strong track record of providing expert advice, information, training and support.
In essence, the TINYg network provides practising professionals with essential, timely, accurate and relevant terrorism-related global situational awareness. This allows professionals operating in both the private and public sectors to be better informed in relation to their own threat analyses, vulnerability identification, risk mitigation and business continuity measures.
Current sponsors of TINYg are Mitie, Axis Communications, Bidvest Noonan, Universal Security Systems, Esoteric, Ward Security, Global Aware International, Covenant Security Solutions, Doyle Security Services and Servoca Secure Solutions.
