About Counter Terror Business
Terrorism and cyber attacks pose an increasing global threat with devastating effects on society and global markets. 2015 saw the UK government commit to spend more than two per cent of GDP on defence in the Summer Budget, with David Cameron placing an emphasis on protecting the country from terrorist and criminal organisations. While military training and air strikes continue to be extended in the middle east, it is now understood that terrorism is not a purely foreign threat.
The danger of ‘home grown’ extremism within the UK has led to the introduction of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, which requires key public bodies, including schools and NHS trusts, to recognise signs of radicalisation as part of the ‘Prevent’ duty. Counter terror measures now have wide-reaching implications for everyday British life and must be constantly reviewed to keep up to date with modern threats at all levels, from the spread of hate speech, to cyber security, to wider military intervention.
Counter Terror Business magazine, launched in 2010, is a specialist digital publication distributed on a tightly controlled, fully requested basis to 6,500 heads of security, intelligence officers, procurement officials and department heads in local and central government. Its target audience includes the intelligence services, police, ambulance, fire and rescue services, Home Office, Ministry of Defence, Armed Forces, environment agencies, border control agencies, customs, aviation and port authorities. Also included in its distribution are heads of private sector concerns and other organisations involved in security and defence.
