Anti-Terrorism Solutions

CIS provides a number of risk mitigation solutions for organizations at risk of terrorist attack.

Risk Assessment and Program Development

The first step in preparing an organization for the threat of terrorism is accurate analysis of the risk situation. However, many companies lack the knowledge and tools to conduct complete and accurate assessments of terrorism related risk. With over a decade of anti-terrorism and force protection experience, CIS security consultants fill this void by providing expert guidance on critical issues such as threat assessment, blast and weapon effects analysis, security evaluation, and countermeasures identification.

Our consultants use proven analysis and evaluation tools to provide accurate assessments of assets, threats, and vulnerabilities. We employ methods developed for use within the nuclear industry, diplomatic security, and military force protection communities, in addition to proprietary evaluation tools designed specifically for use at commercial facilities. Our assessments are also based on accurate and realistic design basis threats and threat scenarios--the product of decades of terrorism related research and analysis.

In addition to conducting comprehensive risk assessments, CIS consultants can aid in evaluating and resolving specific issues of concern (physical security, operations security/OPSEC, vulnerability to chemical and biological attack, blast effects prediction, etc.). CIS consultants are also knowledgable in the vulnerability assessment models currently endorsed by many industry organizations and ensure that all assessments comply with official industry requirements.

Anti-Terrorism Training

Conventional security training programs rarely provide the knowledge and skills necessary for preventing and responding to terrorist attacks. To address this issue, CIS security consultants frequently provide on-site training in advanced security tactics and procedures. Previous customized training programs have focused on issues such as entry point screening, bomb threat response, operations security (OPSEC), mail screening, and post-incident response.

CIS professionals also teach a number of terrorism-related programs for vocational schools and professional organizations:

Since 1991, CIS consultants have trained thousands of security, law enforcement, and emergency response professionals in terrorism related issues. To see a list of who we've trained, click here.

Anti-Terrorism Officers (ATOs)

Few security officers outside of the government community have the training or experience to effectively prevent and respond to threats associated with terrorism and organized violence. To address this vital issue, CIS has selected and trained a number of experienced Special Services Group (SSG) officers in anti-terrorism tactics and security procedures. These officers, referred to as Anti-Terrorism Officers (ATOs), provide an effective solution for armed security services at high risk installations, such as chemical facilities, sea ports, military bases, and utility plants.
