CPTED is a powerful tool to reduce the risks  and effects of terrorism in crowded spaces.

Crowded spaces present terrorists with a target set that is particularly attractive and effective for their aims.

The terror leverage is high in that they have only to terrorise or have a damaging effect on a small number of people to invoke terror in the large number of individuals who are in that crowded space at that time.

In addition, because the terrorising effect affects a large number of people, their is greater possibility of information about it being propagated by the public media - thus extending the terror reach.

This course provides:

  • tools to analyse terrorism risks and consequences for specific crowded and potentially crowded spaces
  • tools to identify the potential for different forms  of terrorist actions (single and multiple) in specific crowded spaces
  • suggested strategies for reducing the risks and consequences of particular classes and types of terrorist acts in crowded spaces.
This course offers students the possibility to be assessed and certificated.

Cybersecurity for financial sector small enterprises is different! It is very different from cyber security for other small businesses. from large businesses and home users.

IT security is not enough!  Cyber-security for financial sector SMEs is more important than for most other businesses. The risks and consequences are high enough to destroy the business and result in significant adverse financial outcomes for owners, directors, staff and clients. Financial sector SMEs are one of the primary targets of hackers dues to the potential access to information about wealthy clients. They typically have  a combination of low staff numbers (1-20 staff) and office processes that offer a very large number of potential pathways for successful cyber-attacks. This work environment means they are also more at risk from claim refusal from  cyber-insurance assessors.

In short it is essential to  minimize the risks of adverse consequences of successful cyber attacks. All businesses can be hacked. In the case of financial sector SMEs, the key is to minimize the consequences. This requires a different way of thinking, and a different approach to cyber-security that focus towards management decisions and away from IT-only approaches.

Cyber-security for Financial Planners  is  short practical course for managers. It  describes  6 essential cyber-security strategies for financial sector SMEs - accountants, financial planners/advisers, mortgage brokers, share advisers etc.
