Ken Dulieu, Chairman, Capcon Argen, comments:
The human cost of terrorism has been felt in virtually every corner of the globe. Not only does terrorism have a very real and direct impact on human lives, it also destabilises governments, undermines civil society, jeopardizes peace and security, and threatens social and economic development. The government has an obligation to ensure the human rights of their nationals and others by taking preventative measures to protect them against the threat of terrorist acts.
Intelligence-based admissibility screening is therefore an essential element of counter-terrorism, ensuring that those posing a risk to the UK’s security and prosperity are identified as far away from the actual border as possible or immediately after arrival, and that those who are inadmissible do not enter or cannot remain in the country – thereby denying terrorists the means and opportunity to carry out terrorist attacks.
I have worked with many government agencies – as well as international businesses – home and abroad, on terror related issues, working in locations of high risk. Currently Capcon Limited provides a tiered approach to high level screening and bespoke risk analysis in relation to potential terror threats. Over many years these have often averted potential catastrophes.
