SYDNEY – Masterclass #7 Terrorist Bombs: The Practical Facts for Security and Risk Personnel


An ASRC masterclass to enable security and risk managers to identify and manage risks that exist in Australia relating to terrorist bomb attacks.


Providing an introduction to the lethal, but often simple world of improvised explosive devices.

With the proliferation and transfer of bomb tactics and technology by global violent extremist organisations, the breadth and scope of the security challenge can often become overwhelming. Underpinning any sound security decisions is an accurate understanding of the nature of the terrorist bomb threat. If the starting point is wrong, then measures and resources can be misused.

Who Should Attend

This session is for leaders and managers who work in industries that directly or indirectly deal with the challenges posed by terrorist explosive devices. This includes the sale and security of components, physical screening of people or their property, or in the protective measures to counter the threat. The aim is to provide a base level of understanding so as to enable identification and management of risks that exist in Australia relating to terrorist bomb attacks.
