A five-day course for those who have responsibility for strategic security and security risk management

This course details how to protect your critical infrastructure by minimising day-to-day and long-term risk.


CARVER is one of the tools we look at on this five-day course.  Developed by US Special Operations Forces and adapted into a defensive model to counter current and emerging threats, it’s a system that is used to identify and rank specific targets as well as vulnerable points in the critical infrastructure.


The CARVER process is based on risk management.  It helps to ensure that resources are correctly targeted to ensure maximum efficiency and that vital processes and installations are protected.  It was used recently against Jemaah Islamiyah insurgents in the Philippines.


Critical infrastructure includes:


  • Airports
  • Seaports
  • Ground transport
  • Rail
  • Power
  • Military Installations
  • Fuel infrastructures


This course is relevant for those with a responsibility for Strategic Security and Security Risk Management:


  • Security Risk Managers
  • Military Intelligence Services
  • Premises Security Managers


The course will be delivered over five days.

An example of this is our seven-day course – held on airline premises – that introduces and maintains a culture of security amongst aircrew.  Delegates are taught how to design and deliver their own personal security training programmes.


The ‘Train-the-Trainer’ approach provides in-depth knowledge of aviation security procedures, practices, regulation and law compliance.


On completion of the course, a pack - containing a PowerPoint presentation produced to the airline’s procedures, training films and other teaching materials - is provided with a licence for one year (longer licence periods available by agreement).  This helps to make sure the initial training programme is deployed. The licence also includes an update and support service.


A recurrent programme is available where the course is reviewed and revised on an annual basis to ensure that it remains current. This option also includes the review and assessment of client record-keeping and certification.
