Arguably event and venue safety and security has never been as challenging as it is today.
Horrendous attacks which have occurred with seemingly increasing regularity have targeted public gatherings and events internationally. The overt and callous acts of terrorists do not respect traditional rules of engagement and the strategy to maximise fear in the community seems to target our workplaces, arena, public venues and places of mass gathering.
Due to this current elevated security climate, it is imperative to strategise and plan early to keep your event safe.
Having a well-prepared strategy will help to safeguard your event.
- It is important to be prepared at all times, keeping up-to-date with the latest in security – not just when an attack or threat occurs
- Cyber security threats to businesses and hacking are also becoming more prevalent
- Having the right resources is crucial to combat attacks
