Protecting against terrorist bomb attack - online survey

Complete the online survey for your chance to win a free place at the Protecting against terrorist bomb attack conference in London on 4 June 2008.

The key aim of the UK Government's counter terrorism strategy is to reduce the risk from international terrorism so that people can go about their daily lives freely and with confidence. As part of this plan, the Government recently announced its 'National Security Strategy', which amongst a number of measures highlighted the need to protect buildings, crowded places and the people who frequent them from terrorist bomb attack.

The challenge now facing the UK is one of disseminating the existing knowledge of blast protection techniques from an inner circle of experts to a wider audience of construction and security professionals. This requires leadership from those organisations with expertise, as well as best practice sharing, to ensure our strategic infrastructure, key public and commercial buildings and the nation’s citizens are effectively protected.

Speakers include representatives from the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO), the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), Corus Bi-Steel, Arup Security Consulting and TRL.

The deadline for completing this survey is 2 May 2008. All completed surveys will be entered into a draw and the first three selected at random will be offered free entry into the one-day conference Protecting against terrorist bomb attack on 4 June 2008.
