This in-person workshop is delivered by specially trained officers from the National Counter Terrorism Security Office and the Counter Terrorism network. It includes the chance to examine counterfeit and genuine identity documents to gain a better understanding of security features.
The session is aimed at staff who are required to verify ID documents on a regular basis, including those working in HR and recruitment.

In other security-related news, the UK Government recently published the draft Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill, otherwise known as “Martyn’s Law,” named after Martyn Hett, who was murdered in the terrorist attack at Manchester Arena in June 2017. The new law will impose legal requirements on certain establishments and events to ensure they have taken proportionate measures to safeguard against the possibility of a terrorist attack and also to better ensure that the response will be fit for purpose should such an attack take place with the primary objective being to reduce the risk of physical harm to people. More information including premises that the Bill will apply to, is available here.
