Our Anti-Terror Planning service provides a systematically researched and expertly analysed study of an organisation's exposure to acts of terrorism. We practice tactics, techniques and strategies that governments, militaries, police departments and corporations adopt to prevent or in response to terrorist threat.
Anti-terrorism versus Counter-terrorism – Whats the difference?
The concept of anti-terrorism emerges from a thorough examining of the concept of terrorism as well as an attempt to understand and articulate what constitutes terrorism in Western terms. In military contexts, terrorism is a tactic, not an ideology. Terrorism may be a tactic in a war between nation-states, in a civil war, or in an insurgency.
Counter-terrorism – Proactive
Black Swan refers to counter terrorism as offensive strategies intended to prevent a belligerent, from successfully using the tactic of terrorism. The US military definition, compatible with the definitions used by NATO and many other militaries, is "Operations that include the offensive measures taken to prevent, deter, preempt, and respond to terrorism.
In Black Swan words - Counter-terrorism is a proactive set of techniques for denying an opponent the use of terrorism-based tactics, just as counter-air is a set of techniques for denying the opponent the use of attack aircraft.
Anti-terrorism - Reactive
Anti-terrorism is defensive, intended to reduce the chance of an attack using terrorist tactics at specific points, or to reduce the vulnerability of possible targets to such tactics.
In Black Swan words - Anti-terrorism is a reactive response to an opponent in use of terrorism actions.
