This handbook presents policy-makers and practitioners with a final opportunity to make critical changes to optimise national security, months before the Opening Ceremony of the biggest peacetime event to take place in the UK. Comprehensive in scope, this is the first document to encompass all five official inquiries into the 7 July 2005 London Bombings. It also offers its own analysis of the Anders Breivik ‘lone wolf’ attacks in Norway on 22 July 2011 and the August 2011 England Riots. It covers all key threats, and makes many important recommendations that must be urgently addressed before Summer 2012.
Written by SIRS Consultancy. SIRS Consultancy Ltd is devoted to providing research and policy recommendations on national and international security, carrying out projects across the public and private sectors in the UK and throughout the world.
Foreword by Anthony Glees, Professor of Politics and Director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at Buckingham, who is consulted widely by the media as a 'terrorism expert' to comment on the intelligence matters.
“I have found this SIRS Consultancy handbook on the National Security Risks leading up to the London 2012 Olympic Games to be extraordinarily useful. For the first time the different strands of the threats that are facing this country have been pulled together into one concise document. Having read this I now feel better prepared, better informed and much more ready to understand how threats will develop and how we might deal with them. This is an invaluable piece of work.”
Patrick Mercer, OBE, MP, Shadow Minister for Homeland Security (2003 – 2007)
"A must-read for anyone who does not want to spend hours of their lives trawling through reports and news pages to get accurate, up-to-date information on the threats the UK faces today. This concise document will help you to understand the issues and develop your plans for the future."
Head of the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (2005 – 2011)
