Consider what you and your colleagues can do to make it harder for a would-be terrorist to carry out a successful attack by:
Being alert to suspicious behaviour and activity in and around your site, such as people loitering or displaying an unusual level of interest in asking questions, filming or photographing.
Assessing the possible vulnerabilities of your site to various attack methods, and taking suitable measures to mitigate the risks.
Being security-minded in your communications, particularly online.
Encouraging and enabling a security culture in the workplace, eg. ensuring concerns can easily be reported and will be acted upon.
Considering how you and your staff would respond to an incident occurring inside, outside, or near to your building or site.
