The new counter-terrorism strategy (CONTEST) reflects the changing terrorist threats we now face. New government policies incorporate concerns about extremism and high-profile national events that make security issues of paramount importance to public protection and policy. To improve our long-term security resilience and social cohesion, it is essential that responsibilities are shared across all levels of government, the emergency services, the private sector and civil society.
The threats posed to the UK are diverse, complex and interdependent. Addressing these evolving risks requires an integrated approach. The National Security Strategy sets out how modern, intelligence-led border control is vital to both national security and global stability. Join us at Public Security and Counter-Terrorism: Managing the Risk where prominent speakers in the sector will outline how we can deliver a more stable, just and secure environment.
