Course Overview

Terrorism is a persistent threat that changes over time. Changes in terrorism place new demands on security professionals to constantly develop their knowledge and skills in managing and overcoming this threat, in order to protect and secure an organisation in terms of its people, assets, and operations. This course is relevant to security professionals, at both the operational and managerial levels, whether at the early or later stages of their careers.


This workshop is accredited by the Security Association Singapore (SAS). Participants will be awarded “Continuing Professional Development” (CPD) points. Please visit the SAS website here for more information.

Learning Objectives


Underpinned by a body of knowledge and principles, the general objective of this course is to impart an applied framework for participants to fit in the respective security capabilities, requirements, and standards of their organisations after they complete this course.


By the end of the course, participants will gain significant knowledge and understanding, in four key areas, for application to their security-related work:


  1. Threat-side knowledge and assessment in relation to (i) the nature of terrorism, (ii) current and future terrorist actors, and (iii) current and future attack trends. 

  2. Impact-side appreciation of how terrorism affects the social, business, and political stability of our country and why all security personnel play a key role in anti- and counter-terrorism. 

  3. Response-side strategies and decision-making in relation to (1) the improvement and maintenance of security measures, and (2) threat reduction/risk mitigation during an actual attack, and (3) post-threat exploitation of success. 

  4. The application of information in supporting decision-making in respect to security planning and execution in the larger context of anti- and counter-terrorism. 


Through a mini tabletop exercise involving a hypothetical terrorism scenario in Singapore, participants will learn to integrate items 1, 2, 3 and 4 into an overall framework for action.
