Terrorism in Africa 20 years after the Nairobi/Dar es Salaam bombings

We tend to associate significance to anniversaries and in that light I’d like to weigh in on terrorism in Africa today. Are things any better? Any worse? Let’s look at what is happening across Africa.

Continuity Standards, Guidelines, Best Practices: Goal or Guide?

Why a well-designed, implemented, and maintained Business Continuity Management System results in a more resilient organization.

Contrary to accepted wisdom, terrorism CAN be detected early enough to prevent

A recent FBI study on active shooters has concluded solidly that ''In the weeks and months before an attack, many active shooters engage in behaviors that may signal impending violence''.

Upcoming training opportunities in the USA with ContinuityLink

ISO 22301, ISO 27001, ISO 37001... Register today for our training events in September in the USA.

Preparing festivals and community events for emergencies

Communities are well aware of the importance of festivals as places to socialize, unwind and spend time with friends and family. Yet they often represent large gatherings of people where safety and security must be a priority.

The debate over prison conditions for convicted terrorists

There was a very interesting juxtaposition of stories on violent extremism this week in two Western, democratic nations where two acts of terrorism shocked their populace’s in recent years. 

Score one for the good guys!

As a society we have to decide what powers and what tools to give our protectors. Are we ok with the use of devious tactics to deal with devious actors?

Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ≠ ISO 37001. Here’s why!

Why ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System certifications are about to become more commonplace in the US.

Finally some data about the mental health-terrorism link

The presence of symptoms of a mental disorder will only ever be one of many factors in an individual’s movement toward radicalization.

To be continued…

Because you want and need your life adventure to be continued, and there are people you can help, we can work together to build resilience and help save the day, perhaps even save some lives too!

A good day for anti-extremist forces

Extremism is extremism, irrespective of political or ideological stripe. We must restrict the use of force to the State (and even that must be judiciously exercised).

Magical gifts to overcome your fears

We can all learn from our own experience that resilience isn't complicated... Art mirrors life, resilience mirrors life too.
