A very unfortunate situation in security involves building response scenarios for threats that you are unable to identify in real time. It is very nice to have SOPS and protocols for scenarios but what about the identification process?
As the number of terrorist attacks grow throughout Europe and the US we witness a lot of confusion regarding operational terminology pertinent to terror attacks. The common terms used are prevention and response.
So many experts around the world try to offer suggestions in body language, suspicious sign recognition, reactionary tactics, and the list goes on and on. There seems to be an atmosphere of wanting to take advantage of the current situation to build new strategies and tactics, and clearly, take professional credit.
In security scenarios that require a rapid response, our stress response is often controlled by our natural instincts. However, these instincts are often in opposition to what should be done in order to solve the situation.
In any security context, organizations attempt to prevent hostile activities and attempt to implement security procedures for early warning and effective prevention.
Well, no one can argue with the determination that terrorists show in conducting different attacks. But an interesting question arises?? Are western democracies as motivated to protect their sensitive installations and citizens as well?? Are citizens willing to live as much as are terrorist willing to die???
Theaters of operation in security scenarios reflect critical information regarding the opponent, our capabilities, the efficiency of our tactics, what works and what doesn't, our ability to overcome obstacles, the reliability of our procedures, the efficiency of our strategy, operational flexibility and much more.
It is imperative to know if your current security system can efficiently deal with a crisis as manifested through different threats. This knowledge is crucial for understanding where we stand in relation to where we should be and there are a number of steps required to implement in order to make sure the process is done correctly.
