UK’s Chartered Insurance Institute to Host Conference on Terrorism

August 31, 2009

The UK’s Chartered Insurance Institute announced that its London Market faculty will hold a second “Counter Terrorist Workshop” in conjunction with the City of London Police on November 10.

The CII said the first conference, held earlier this year, had been a great success, as “feedback from attendees at the earlier workshop was extremely positive.”

Gillian Donegan, CII faculties’ manager, noted: “Regrettably the threat of terrorism continues to be an everyday part of 21st century life. Against this background there remains a continuing and pressing need for businesses of all sizes to plan how best to deal with the potential disruption caused by a major terrorist incident.”

“Our workshop features a simulation of an attack – posing various questions and dilemmas for the delegates to resolve, providing a unique opportunity to work out how businesses, staff and customers are best protected.”

The first event was delivered by Counter Terrorism Security Advisors and hosted by the CII.

Toni Longman, a director at Heath Lambert, commented: “I found the workshop thought provoking – it has raised the profile of terrorism and business continuity in my mind with regards to my own organization, and I will develop some of the themes and points raised today for inclusion in discussions with clients and in the advice I provide to them.
