“Industry Self-Delivery enters new phase” announces National Counter-Terrorism Security Office

The National Counter-Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) has announced a significant change in the way that Counter-Terrorism Awareness is provided to businesses. NaCTSO’s current Industry Self-Delivery package is soon to be replaced with a brand new e-Learning product entitled ACT Awareness e-Learning. This will provide nationally-accredited counter-terrorism guidance to help industry better understand – and mitigate against – current terrorist methodology.

Modules will include an Introduction to Terrorism, Identifying Security Vulnerabilities, How to Identify and Respond to Suspicious Behaviour, What to Do in the Event of a Bomb Threat, How to Identify and Deal With a Suspicious Item and How to React to a Firearms or Weapons Attack.

Registration will be simplified for new users, while existing users will be automatically accepted for the scheme.

These changes mean that no further applications for the current Industry Self-Delivery initiative will be considered.

Further details will be made available closer to the launch date.
