Terrorism Awareness was once a national or local issue and mostly restricted to within national borders. The terrorist aims were to use violence and fear to force a government to change its position and agree to the terrorists’ demands. This has changed in recent years.
There are now new terrorists and terrorist groups that have no state or national alliance. They have aims that are often very difficult for governments and people to accept or understand and so the violence will continue across borders, continents and around the world. Of concern is the increasing number of attacks and the level of fear they now achieve through increasing the scale of death and horror and also bringing such fear closer to innocent civilians.
A further aspect of modern terrorism is the levels of crime they are prepared to conduct in order to finance their terrorist activity. Terrorist related crime also now reaches across the world and exists in almost all parts of society where money can be made.
Terrorism Awareness Course Breakdown
This iSMTA Short Course is designed to provide a basic awareness of Terrorism. The programme is aimed at people who have a responsibility within a Business or Organisation for the protection of people and property at risk of a terrorist incident.
Anyone in this position is strongly encouraged to continue with further studies as it is not possible to cover every aspect of terrorism awareness in a short course and, in any event, for many countries there is such an increase in terrorist incidents that keeping updated is a challenge for all of us.
