Assess the origins, magnitude and targeting of terrorist threats to help you DIRECT RESOURCES at the most vulnerable points of the system

‘A single piece of advice, new idea or fresh approach could prove vital to the robustness of your security strategy. In just two days, this event will give you numerous opportunities to glean critical information from other transport operators that will help you tighten your transport security procedures immediately

The definitive event on multi-modal transportation security issues

You have reviewed or are continually reviewing your security practices.
Are you 100% certain that you have covered everything? Your systems may be watertight on paper but there’s no guarantee against a new vulnerability emerging at any time. And without the luxury of infinite resources, how should you be prioritising your security activities to ensure you are protecting against the areas of highest risk?

What would you give to obtain that one crucial insight that could prove the key to a more secure transportation system? This multi-modal transportation security conference will be the single most valuable resource you have in your efforts to shore up security and continually improve systems. By providing a forum where you can compare strategies and approaches with the leading security minds in the transport industry.

The devastating consequences of the potential threats to transportation systems and structures from terrorist groups are well known. Terrorist attacks on public transportation such as the sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system in 1995 have demonstrated the extent to which terrorist groups will go to cause death, public fear and disruption of society’s most critical infrastructure. Public transportation is a relatively easy place for terrorists to target, and surface transportation (e.g., railways, buses, subways) in particular is more open to security risks because the procedures used to check baggage and passengers by airlines have recently become hardened. However, robust security measures can make terrorist operations more difficult on the ground and air and increase the likelihood of early detection and prevention.

The Global Security Summit for Transportation Systems and Critical Transport Infrastructure intends to address the future challenges facing transport operators in all sectors worldwide in preventing terrorism. After September 11, there is a clear need for organisations to review existing procedures and ensure that they are capable of countering modern security threats including the danger that Al Qaeda or another terrorist network will strike again and to prevent against the possible use of chemical or biological weapons on public transport and terminals. To help meet these threats, transport system operators will clearly benefit from obtaining a thorough understanding of the patterns of the terrorist behaviour and the best practice security measures employed by other transport operators, especially those which may face high levels of threat due to their geographical location, symbolic, economic and political significance.

This conference will bring together a panel of leading experts and practitioners in transportation security and terrorism to help the passenger transport industry design more effective countermeasures and develop improved crisis management and emergency planning strategies. Attendees will be security personnel and corporate security directors from the air, rail, highway, maritime and shipping industries concerned with ensuring passenger and employee safety in the light of 9/11. Transportation security policymakers and experts, government agencies, fire, police, emergency services and manufacturers of security systems, technology and transportation equipment will also be invited.





Agenda and Speakers
Conference Day #1
8:00 Coffee and Registration

8:30 Chairman's Welcome and Opening Address

To protect against modern day terrorist threats, it is essential for security personnel to understand the changing nature of terrorism, create measures that take account of new types of threats and devise a framework to review these measures and ensure they are adequate. It is also critical that security planners think “out of the box” when designing counter terrorism measure because terrorists are always trying to exploit new vulnerabilities. Day One of the conference will provide an important analysis of the nature and magnitude of the risks to transport systems from terrorist groups, networks and individuals, including potential targeting. It will also feature case studies of best practice security measures adopted by transport operators across all modes, both in the US and from overseas. Participants will also be encouraged to brainstorm possible security risks and preventative measures.

Associate Under Secretary for Maritime/Land Security
US DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION



9:15 Assessing Current and Future Threats Posed to Public Transport by Terr

Analysing past and future trends may make it possible to predict where future threats might come from. Understanding the objectives and past behaviours of terrorists and current and future transformations in their modus operandi may assist security planners in devising preventative measures. This session will review terrorist attacks against transportation systems: discuss lessons learned and the range of potential future security threats against vulnerable sectors in the transport infrastructure.

10:00 Refreshments

10:30 Developing a Robust and Flexible Security Strategy

This session will describe a “leading edge” security strategy in the transportation sector. What would be the best combination of technology, procedures, patrols, communications and interface with other agencies to create a secure environment and ensure prompt response in the face of a in the face of a threat or act of terrorism?

Roger Clark
Chief of Security (retired)
CENTRAL FLORIDA REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY
(LYNX)


11:00 Pre-Empting a Terrorist Attack through Pre-Incident Preparedness

This session will discuss the potential for pre-empting terrorist attack against critical infrastructural nodes during the crucial pre-incident incubatory phases when terrorists are planning and developing their attack capabilities. With the correct sets of pre-emptive procedures in place in terms of “actionable” threat assessment and defensive measures, it has been shown that terrorist attempts on key transportation facilities can be thwarted. A “Red Team” matrix of likely “terrorist attack/weapons-devices/targeting” on the transportation sector will be presented as part of the analysis.

Dr Joshua Sinai
Senior Policy Analyst
ANSER


11:45 A Partnership Model for Enhancing and Funding Transportation Security

Those parties involved in the security and police exert a great deal of focus upon the prevention and reaction to a terrorist attack with insufficient focus upon obtaining the resources needed. Competition for resources is a political and fiscal pursuit, and in many cases this is an area which security directors in all transport sectors have not sufficiently developed to meet the challenges of the times. This session will discuss the need to figure out where the money is going to come from to pay for preventative and reactive measures to deal with the emerging threats. Delegates will discuss strategies that can be used to tap available funding from the 2003 Federal Budget for Homeland Security and how government/private sector organisations, groups and agencies can work together to collectively manage future security risks and access funding.

14:45 Discussion Session: Critical Considerations When Tackling Security Fro

What key issues must be considered when conducting a security review from the inside out? What policies and procedures for vetting existing and new employees are appropriate and could these leave any security gaps exposed? What will be the impact on the business, as security becomes an increasingly important issue when hiring employees?

15:30 Refreshments

16:00 Obtaining Employee Support for Your Security Policies

Employee relations could prove vital in developing a watertight security strategy. When we are talking about tightening security your employees form a crucial group whose influence and actions might make or break a new security policy. So the matter of communicating and training staff should not be left until last. This session will describe the development of a security ‘mindset’ amongst staff and customers, training programmes and how a top down approach to security works in practice.

#BEST PRACTICES FOR PROTECTING
TRANSPORT SYSTEMS AGAINST TERRORISM#

What security upgrades have been put into place to boost security on different transportation modes and at key risk prone junctures? What are the main threats and how are these been monitored and contained? These 'practice sharing' sessions will allow participants to glean important insights into how other transportation modes are tackling terrorism and take back important ideas and solutions for tightening security to their own organisation. These sessions will also give delegates an unique opportunity to re-consider their own security procedures, perhaps by highlighting potential security gaps not previously identified, or highlighting alternative approaches to operational security.


11:30 Case Study: Cruiseline Industry

This session will be covered by a major cruiseline operator and will cover port and on-board security issues. Please keep checking this site for speaker's details which are currently unavailable.

13:00 Lunch for speakers and delegates

14:30 Panel Session: Transferring Security Solutions and Strategies between

Whilst many security solutions employed by a particular transport mode (such as screening in aviation) may not in practice be transferred to other modes, critical lessons can still be learned from the way other sectors are hardening security procedures and rethinking their approaches, for example in the realms of intelligence gathering, information sharing and staff training. This session will bring together a panel of key experts from across the different transport modes to help facilitate strategic thinking on counter-terrorism activities and enable the emerging lessons to be disseminated between organisations in a timely and appropriate way

15:00 Communicating The Threats: How Can Government and Law Enforcement Agen

Where does the information that transport operators receive about terrorism come from, in light of this sectors’ “constant movement” on land, sea and air? Where are the weak links in communicating terrorist threats and how can government and police departments improve communications and information flow? How do different industries and countries tackle this issue and what is best practice in this vital area. Can technology play a more prominent role here? This session will also cover good examples of how different agencies have, in a co-ordinated fashion, shared intelligence and information to the private sector to effectively counter terrorism

Tuesday 3rd September 0830-1130 : WORKSHOP A:
Pre-Empting a Terrorist Attack through Pre-Incident Preparedness

After September 11, there is a clear need for organisations to review existing procedures and ensure that they are capable of countering modern security threats including the danger that Al Qaeda or another terrorist network will strike again and to prevent against the possible use of chemical or biological weapons on public transport and terminals.
However, with the correct sets of pre-emptive procedures in place in terms of "actionable" threat assessment and defensive measures, it has been shown that terrorist attempts on key transportation facilities can be thwarted. Joshua Sinai will conduct an interactive "Red Team" workshop in which participants will discuss, work through and categorize all the components involved in the incubatory pre-incident terrorist attack phases against a spectrum of transportation facilities (by sector) and the defensive measures that need to be instituted to prevent and pre-empt such attacks.

The categories covered will include types of terrorist groups, objectives, strategies, tactics ("conventional" or CBRN, single or multiple attacks), likely weapons/devices, internal and external hurdles, likely targets, geographical location of targets, and the 10 most likely targets. Participants will gain a "tool kit" to conduct similar Red Team assessments on their own when they return to their organizations.

Tuesday 3rd September 1200-1500 : WORKSHOP B:
Practical Measures for Preventing and Responding to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Incidents

The devastating consequences of the potential threats to transportation systems and structures from terrorist groups are well known. Terrorist attacks on public transportation such as the sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system in 1995 have demonstrated the extent to which terrorist groups will go to cause death, public fear and disruption of society's most critical infrastructure. Public transportation is a relatively easy place for terrorists to target, and surface transportation (e.g., railways, buses, subways) in particular is more open to security risks because the procedures used to check baggage and passengers by airlines have recently become hardened. However, robust security measures can make terrorist operations more difficult on the ground and air and increase the likelihood of early detection and prevention. This practical half-day workshop will emphasize prevention as well as response to "Weapons of Mass Destruction" (WMD) incidents. Participants will be shown how to identify potential hazards, reduce vulnerability and improve mitigation - using T.E.R.M. - a Threat Exposure Response Matrix developed by TSSI to analyse specific threats such as the Atlanta Olympics package bomb. In this session, Jeffrey will also show how TERM is able to examine new threats to transport systems and facilities: from anthrax to package bombs to vehicle bombs.

Tuesday 3rd September 1530-1900 : WORKSHOP D:
TRANSPORTATION WARGAME TO IMPROVE PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE


Why Now: Recent events have caused the US government and industry to substantially upgrade their concern over the likelihood and impact of international terrorist incidents on the Transportation sector. We believe the time has come to proactively mobilize to explore innovative ideas and practical solutions to improve our nation's preparedness and response to terrorism. A key aspect of this mobilization is ensuring government and businesses work together to achieve three objectives:

4 Understand the vulnerabilities inherent in the transportation industry at large
4 Heighten institutional awareness of systemic threats to the nation's transportation infrastructure
4 Forge a consensus on the need for collective action and the nature of private-public partnerships to facilitate information sharing on threats, vulnerabilities, and responses

This strategic wargame will provide a valuable way to understand and mitigate a catastrophic incident or co-ordinated attack on US transportation assets. Wargames have helped many organizations test and refine their strategies and structures when faced with similar complexity and uncertainty. These games can help organizations plan for a future they cannot predict, help stakeholders understand each others' perspective, and help to align the goals of individual participants.

What Wargaming Is: Wargaming is a powerful process for thinking about the future that challenges conventional wisdom and allows participants to break with "known truths" and past assumptions. The basic assumption is that the old rules don't apply any more - and most players don't know what the new rules will be. The wargame will provide dynamic interaction among government and industry stakeholders in a realistic risk free environment. For the transportation sector, the following questions will be posed:

4 What are the lessons learned from the recent crises?
4 How should we better prepare and respond in the event of a future terrorist attack?
4 What are the industry and national policy implications of the above responses?
4 What are the public private partnership models to enhance our preparedness and response?
