Working together: evaluating risk & after action forums

We have learned that protecting an environment that has mass amounts of people at any one time or is a critical infrastructure requires practises that have been proven effective. Then, when a situation moves from operational to a crisis, it's imperative the situation needs to be well-trained and have procedures in place that are controlled and managed in a manner that is beneficial to public safety and expediency of bringing an incident under control.

To make our transportation security systems and critical infrastructure as safe as possible, it is important to bring to the table best practices based on lessons learned, review each incident, and place those actions against the practices to see if they can be improved.

Community Security Best Practice

Security starts with prevention requiring the implementation of structured cooperation between all agencies to help ensure the highest levels of security in our transport networks (e.g., airports, seaports, etc.), public open spaces (e, g., rail transportation hubs, bus and coach stations, etc.) and other mass public environments, such as shopping malls, office and workplace hubs, and concerts. The vulnerability of all these domains has been tragically demonstrated over recent years through the impact of serious crime (e.g., marauding terrorist attacks, etc.) and are cause for significant security challenges.

This best practice guidance offers low cost, effective, and evidenced-based security practices which include methods such as the Port Protective Security Management System (PSeMS) approach to provide a framework and methodology to support your organization’s security assurance and resilience. Guidance on support technologies for enhanced organizational communication and collaboration are also provided.

The CSBP/PSeMS document shares information and best practices to help keep people safe and secure by ensuring a sustainable transportation and critical infrastructure framework. The guidance is equally applicable to public open spaces and venues where many of the lessons learned can be implemented.
