Organisations and individuals need to ensure that they are aware of the risks to their selves, whether an organisation, business traveller, family, press officer or someone that is well known within the media. Security awareness is the practice of being aware of your surroundings and being able to identify and protect oneself against potential threats, for some this comes naturally although for most organisations and individuals this requires training and support.
Security and situational awarenss is key in an number of areas and can mean the difference between being a target and increasing safety, observing and assessing do not always come easy to some people and this is where training can help assist. In this day and age it is more relevant to ensure that the majority of people have an understanding of their environment, the reasons for this are many and can range from a number of different incidents that may cause harm. These could be the increase in ‘lone wolf’ style attacks from extremists, non extremist physical or verbal attacks, theft and damage of property and general criminal activity and unwanted attention.
The areas that we have supported clients in particular are:
– Retail conflict management and situational awareness training, this provides workers with the necessary tools to deal with situations common to retail environments.
– Security staff situational awareness training, increasing the skills and knowledge of novice and experienced security officers.
– Front of house staff, for many city based offices then there is an increased need for staff to remain vigilant and understand the pre cursors to a potential attack.
– Business and executives, for many high net worth individuals or people working in prominent positions then close protection may seem slightly intrusive so we engage with the client and provide bespoke awareness training.
