Nations across the globe are facing a clear and present danger. During the past decade in Europe and the United States, the uptick in threats to national security and public safety, virtual and physical, is due to an often-overlooked common denominator – the human element.
In the first installment of TAL Global’s webinar series, the company’s CEO, Mr. Johnathan Tal, has described the challenges inherent to business and leisure travel and provided a set of common sense guidelines designed to help plan and execute trips in a way that will minimize exposure and vulnerability to a variety of physical and digital threats.
TAL Global just finished an eventful week in London, at the UK Security Expo 2017. Scores of conference and exhibition attendees visited our booth, had a chance to chat with our Team of Experts (we had four SMEs on hand, including the CEO, Mr. Johnatan Tal, our COO and Managing Director of Investigations, Mr. Oscar Villanueva, Dr. Erroll Southers, our Managing Director of Counter-Terrorism and Infrastructure Security, and Mr. Andy Davis , our Regional Director, Europe).
On Wednesday, November 29, 2017, Dr. Erroll Southers, TAL Global’s Managing Director for Counter-Terrorism and Infrastructure Protection, gave a keynote speech titled: “Protecting Cultural Property” at The International Arts & Antiquities Security Forum (IAASF). Earlier that day, Dr. Southers presented another keynote speech titled: “Homegrown Violent Extremism – Toward a New Understanding”. Thursday, November 30th, 2017, Dr. Southers will present another keynote speech, introducing Terrorist Decision Making (TDM™).
UK Security Expo 2017, England’s premier safety and security exhibition and conference, is approaching, taking place on November 29-30. TAL Global is sending a team of some of its Subject Matter Experts who were invited to give an unprecedented number of keynote speeches, participate in panels, lectures, and present TAL Global’s capabilities in the company’s stand. If you’re in London on the right dates, come and meet our experts.
DBIEDs or Drone Borne Improvised Explosive devices can turn into real threats. They are small, quiet, almost invisible, and they can, directly and indirectly, cause substantial damage.
Security managers are rightly concerned about keeping their facilities safe and secure and have started looking into solutions. As with any new market for anti-UAV systems, they are finding themselves bombarded by conflicting information, confusing claims and partial cost and performance data.
Against a background of intelligence that terrorists are increasingly viewing drones as weapons of choice for attacks against stadiums and other large public venues, security officials are being bombarded, with technologies to counter this looming threat.
More than 100 innocent people were murdered this year in Europe by terrorists wielding an old-new weapon of mass disruption – a truck. By following a rather simple set of rules, it is possible to minimize your chance of becoming a victim of a terror truck attack.
If you think Minority Report was just another science fiction movie, think again. In the movie, a special law enforcement unit used unusual psychic capabilities to arrest and convict criminals before they commit their crimes (murders in this case). In real life, Israel’s Internal Security Service (ISS), known locally as the “Shin Bet”, is using, among other tactics, elaborate, big data-based and “Deep Learning” algorithms to detect and arrest would-be Palestinian terrorists.
