Executive Briefings, Thursday 26 July

At its November 2017 meeting the ANZCTC endorsed a motion for the Crowded Places Sub-Committee to examine aspects of the Australian Private Security Industry. This will involve a review of existing occupational standards and other related matters that apply to Australian security officers, security business owners and security consultants. The purpose of this examination is to identify any counter-terrorism implications, issues or risks. Where necessary, the Sub-Committee will make recommendations to the ANZCTC.

This briefing will drill down into the approach to mitigating risk in a cost effective manner. It will address the importance of creating an unbiased risk assessment to ensure a long term cost effective threat mitigation plan.

This briefing will cover the steps required to develop practical CCTV policy and guidelines for large companies, national organisations, local government and critical infrastructure. It includes standardisation of purchasing and procurement procedures.

When faced with a cyber crisis, it is critical to demonstrate strong leadership and communicate credibly with all stakeholders to avoid a reputation meltdown. Learning to steer your way through the web of stakeholders and thinking of the worst are must-have crisis skills for the communicator. In this dynamic scenario-based session, participants will have the opportunity to practice skills and define their strategy to prevent a crisis from turning into a reputation train wreck.

Major events bring complexity to effective crowded places protection planning. This briefing will discuss how much attention should be given to displacement of risk, how to effectively identify additional risk owners, whether risk displacement brings liabilities on various stakeholders, owners / operators, consultants/contractors; and what components and principles should be considered during strategic and tactical planning for a major event.

This briefing will provide insights into the steps required to plan and implement a phased migration from multiple standalone systems into an enterprise video management system.

Executive Briefings, Friday 27 July 

This briefing considers an approach that can be taken and a methodology applied in designing secure buildings; specifically tall buildings. These are different in both the needs of security, and how the design solution is applied, regardless of where they are located in the world. The impact of incidents like 9/11 will be with us for decades to come, and although one cannot protect against that type of attack, one must be able to countenance the impact in both realistic and perception terms. Types of incidents that the world has experienced in the last two years will also be discussed.

The term ‘high risk environments’ requires definition to explain what constitutes appropriate and proportionate security arrangements. These settings and their inherent threats and risks are in security terms viewed as complex and therefore difficult to manage. High risk environments may include major events. The challenge is to prescribe a security solution that captures a range of security elements in order to achieve a cohesive, reliable and sustainable security overlay including physical form, security infrastructure, policy and operating procedures, and people.

Over the past 20 years crowd and event management has changed due to the failures and learnings gained from incidents that have resulted in loss of life. The need for increased security practices for crowded places in the current security climate throws new issues for event management. Stakeholder consultation and realistic mitigation can resolve potential issues. Best practice in crowd management has been driven by countries such as the United Kingdom based around the learnings gained from the ‘Hillsborough Disaster’ and implementation of the ‘Purple Guide’. Australia has followed these best practices and in its own right has the ability to lead in the future.
