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.
