National Counter Terrorism Security Office extends Project Griffin with a self-delivery training initiative

The UK’s National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) is launching a new Project Griffin based initiative to enable organizations to train employees on how to respond to a terror attack.

Details of the ‘Industry Self Delivery’ extension to Project Griffin were announced at the annual Security and Counter Terrorism Expo in London on Wednesday April 20th. Project Griffin began in 2004 and specialist officers around the country are now briefing around 100,000 workers every year. However, the new self-delivery programme aims to reach ten times that number.

Companies wishing to deliver Project Griffin to their employees are invited to register with NaCTSO. Following authorisation companies will be provided with the NaCTSO Project Griffin package relevant to their sector and will be given regular updates. NaCTSO will also offer assistance to trainers through a ‘Product Familiarisation’ program, enabling them to deliver the product to their employees, however attendance is not compulsory.

To ensure that a company is a ‘fit and proper’ body to deliver Project Griffin, the following criteria for registration will be applied.

A company must:

  • Be a Public Limited Company;
  • Have an existing corporate training structure using accredited trainers;
  • Operate in the ‘crowded place’ environment;
  • Deliver all and any part of the NaCTSO Project Griffin product free of charge;
  • Sign a formal contract agreeing to abide by NaCTSO and Crown Copyright terms & conditions of use.
