Terror threats in workplacesShow

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the threat of terrorism remains high and is constantly evolving. Businesses need to be aware of the current trends in terrorism and how workplaces may be influenced. Learn how businesses can be better prepared here.

Changing Nature of Terrorism

As self-radicalisation continues to be a concern, businesses need to be alert in order to identify and report at-risk individuals early. Business may also adopt security enhancement programmes, such as TOPSIS, to create a culture of security awareness within the workplace.

Awareness on how extremists promote their narrative

The prevalence of social media has allowed extremists to propagate hate narratives much easier than previously. Self-radicalised individuals may also promote these narratives in the workplace, so businesses need to know the possible indicators and adopt possible solutions to curb the spread of hate narratives.
