This publication offers security advice and good practice for any organisation looking to protect against the risk of a terrorist act or to limit the damage such an incident could cause.

It sets out how a security plan might be developed and updated, the key measures that can help protect staff, property and information, and how businesses can prepare for the worst.

Protecting Against Terrorism is an overview of the security advice that derives from The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) work with the national infrastructure.

Although aimed primarily at countering potential terrorist attacks, much of it represents good practice for businesses of any size, whether private or public sector.

It is intended as a starting point. Any major decisions or investment relating to protective security should always be taken in consultation with the wider sources of advice and information that are available.
