Project ARGUS is a National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) initiative, exploring ways to aid you in preventing, handling and recovering from a terrorist attack.

It achieves this by taking delegates through a simulated terrorist attack. This simulation identifies the measures to take for preventing, handling and recovering from a terrorist attack or other major incidents. It provides you with a unique opportunity to both learn from and contribute to valuable lessons helping to protect you, your business and your community. The event explores your options; what is likely to happen in the event of a terrorist attack; and what your priorities should be. Project Argus highlights the importance of being prepared and having the necessary plans in place to help safeguard your staff, customers, and your company assets. It also enables delegates to share and learn best practice from similar organisations.

Project Argus is a free event which, using a multi-media simulation, takes you through a terrorist attack. It is delivered by experts from the Metropolitan Police. A series of questions and challenges are put to you, both individually and as a group. You will work in small syndicate groups with other local business representatives and develop your responses to the attack. The whole event including a break will last approximately three hours. Refreshments are provided.

To assist you, it is worth reading two publications produced by NaCTSO called “Secure in the knowledge” & “Expecting the unexpected”, both of which are available to download from the NaCTSO website www.nactso.gov.uk
