Counter Terror Business 43
OVERDUE REPORTS AND AWARD WINNERS
This issue of Counter Terror Business follows the long-overdue publication of the Intelligence and Security Committee’s report into Russian interference in British politics.
Whilst the detail may have been lacking, mainly because it was suggested no effort to investigate had been made by politicians or intelligence services, the paper should provoke a new wave of security laws and a tougher stance on our relationship with Putin.
Read the thoughts of Ray Walsh on the Russia Report on page 10.
Meanwhile, as businesses creep back towards pre-lockdown working patterns, we bring you two articles on business continuity from James McAllister and Brian Dillon (pages 18 and 22), discussing creeper incidents and contingency plans. The coronavirus pandemic caught many off guard, but how can we ensure we are better prepared next time?
And finally, last month we announced the winners of the 2020 Counter Terror Awards. You can read the breakdown of successful organisation on page 26, before special interviews with two of this year’s winners. Figen Murray chats to us on page 31 about Martyn’s Law and Peace Bears, before the PSHE Association’s Anne Bell shares her thoughts on teaching extremism in the classroom, which you can read on page 34.
I hope that you enjoy the issue.
