Continuing terrorism threat to feature in debate at Counter Terror Expo

Counter Terror Expo : 20 November, 2008  (Technical Article)
Chris Yates explains why Europe remains at risk from terrorism and how Counter Terror Expo to be held in February in London goes some way to redress the balance
See our events guide listing for more details about Counter Terror Expo and to visit their site.

Europe remains at elevated risk from terrorism, despite a period of relative calm following the most recent spate of high profile attacks. With governments throughout the region continuing to pump millions of Euro into hardening potential targets and bolstering joint intelligence gathering and policing initiatives against potential future atrocities, terrorism experts preparing to gather at the forthcoming Counter Terror Expo warn that another attack or series of attacks could be just around the corner.

With the geopolitical drivers that prompted recent attacks still in play, it remains probable that terror group cells actively continue to plan future strikes in a number of countries throughout the region. Such terror groups are nowadays often highly mobile and operate autonomously, emphasising the continued need for cooperative intelligence gathering and effective and timely dissemination to all stakeholders to help deflect or deter imminent attacks.

"A joint approach to countering the threat from terrorism, is one the principal themes at the forthcoming Counter Terror Expo. Recent history has shown explicitly that the global battle to beat the terrorist menace, can only be won by effective intelligence sharing amongst all the relevant services at national and international level," comments Event Director, Peter Jones. "Key speakers at Counter Terror Expo will seek to share best practice experience and drive this important and timely message home."

Counter Terror Expo is to be held 10-11 February at the Queen Elizabeth 11 Conference Centre, Westminster, London.

The sell out event brings together 50 of the world's leading experts in the field of counter terrorism in a high-level conference addressing the significant terrorist threat continuing to face the global community. Comprising keynote plenary sessions, strategic briefings, case studies and panel discussions, conference and its associated workshops will be held against a back-drop of one of the biggest counter terror exhibitions of its kind in the world today. Headline issues to be addressed include critical collaboration, partnerships in a crisis, specific and emerging threats, international threat management and the capability gap.

The United Kingdom has seen more than it's fair share of terrorist outrages in recent years and London is now gearing up to be host city for the 2012 Olympic Games. Best practice solutions aimed at preventing the spread of violent extremism and counter-radicalisation and de-radicalisation initiatives are expected to come under detailed scrutiny. So to are the lessons learned in the management and command and control of large scale terrorist attacks that have occurred in the past. London's preparedness to host the 2012 Olympic Games will therefore be a hot topic.

"Counter Terror Expo seeks to take the four key strands of UK counter terror policy - Prevent, Pursue, Protect and Prepare - and foster meaningful debate in the development of global measures to deter future terrorist attacks. We fully expect that those attending Counter Terror Expo will find the event an excellent forum to achieve this goal," concludes Peter Jones.
