Workshop to Discuss Suicide Bombers and IED Threat

August 16, 2006  | 

The FBI and DHS are warning state and local partners to be on the alert for suicide bombers using large vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (LVBIED) and man-portable/hand-carried IEDs. Homeland Defense Journal's Managing the Threat of Suicide Bombers and Improvised Explosive Devices will provide useful information based on U.S. and other international case studies. It will take place Sep. 26-27 in Arlington, Virginia.

The conference is designed for advanced levels of government and security personnel to provide you with relevant information about the motivation, training, equipment, techniques, and operational methods used by terrorist bombers, with particular attention on the suicide bomber. In addition, you'll learn about other terrorism counter-measures, including how to prepare an effective bomb threat and bombing response plan.

Homeland Defense Journal's Managing the Threat of Suicide Bombers and Improvised Explosive Devices will provide you with background on the different bombing methods employed by different terror groups, assist you with detection techniques for Suicide Terrorists, help you to understand what an effective protective policy might look like, and give considerable detail about attempted and actual incidents that have occurred in the United States and overseas. It will also teach you how to conduct building and vehicle searches and evacuations, mitigate bombing attacks and understand the sources, costs and evaluation of, physical security enhancements.

This workshop is not only designed for local, state and federal agencies dealing with today's security concerns, but will also be of extreme value if you are a security manager for a government building, school or corporate headquarters. By gaining an understanding of who the terrorists are, how different terrorist groups gather intelligence and operate, the nature of terrorist explosive devices, and how the devices may be detected and stopped, you will be able to work more closely with your security staff and local agencies in creating security plans that may mitigate or avoid disasters.

This conference will be held at the NRECA (National Rural Electric Coop Assn) Headquarters Building, Executive Conference Center (Main Floor) at 4301 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, Virginia 22203.
