  • This event is free to attend


Due to the success of the previous session with Laraine and the request to hear about her experiences it is a pleasure to invite Laraine back for November at Dungeness Power Station.

Laraine Grant is a CTSA with Counter Terrorism Policing South East, who specialises in the holistic protection of sites from a terrorist attack.

Laraine’s current role involves risk assessing the vulnerability of sites to a terrorist attack, and providing proportionate counter measures. The event will cover the approach taken to those risk assessments, how the UK prevented 16 terrorist attacks last year, and the learning from the Westminster, Manchester, London Bridge, Finsbury Park and Parsons Green attacks. It will conclude with an eye witness account from the Tunisian Beach attack, where a British call centre worker had received counter terrorism training through work. The account details how she was able to apply that training to stay safe.

Laraine Grant has worked in protective security for 16 years. During that time she has studied and passed the Home Office Crime Reduction Officers course, the Architectural Liaison Officers course and the Oxford Brookes Advanced Certificate in Environmental Design and Crime Prevention. Between 2008-2010, she trained with the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NACTSO) and the Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB) to achieve the Licentiate in Counter Terrorism Security Management.

What's in it for you?

We live in a society where terrorism is a constant threat. Businesses should consider this threat as part of their duty to carry out a risk assessment. This event will cover the issues to be considered as part of their risk assessment and provide an insight into sensible counter measures.

Who should attend

We warmly invite every member of IOSH South East branch and look forward to welcoming you to this event.
