Counterterrorism Training: New Rules of Engagement

The ubiquitous threat of terrorism, including suicide terrorism, has changed policing forever. With new rules of engagement, law enforcement needs a new overall strategy.

All military, police, security and first response personnel – from the dispatcher to the hostage rescue team – must have the knowledge and training to decisively respond to any terrorist event. Equally important is the competence to deter, interdict and mitigate terrorist threats, because making an arrest after the fact is no longer a useful option.

Proven Israeli Tactics, Tailored for Any Organization

In Israel, counterterrorism readiness training has been field proven and refined through decades of conflict with brutal and innovative adversaries. Drawing on this extensive experience in some of the most tactically active units in Israel, TAM-C experts regularly train public and private personnel to confront all forms of terrorism.

 

The TAM-C Solutions’ training seminars cover all variations of adversarial violence, including: WMD attacks; suicide bombers; lone-wolf jihadism; eco-terrorism; anarchist aggression; animal enterprise terrorism; and far-right extremism.

The Israeli model of dealing with mass-casualty events has been field tested time and again. It is a model that works.

 

Israeli first responders have overcome the challenges of establishing immediate command-and-control and inter-agency cooperation in some of the most dynamic security conditions possible. TAM-C shares this expertise through highly effective training methods unparalleled in their realistic representation of the uncertainty and chaos of a mass-casualty scenario.

 

With TAM-C Solutions, you will:

  • HEAR personal experiences directly from mass-casualty first responders.
  • SEE the sites of mass-casualty terrorist attacks.

Terror attacks will happen. How will you respond?

  • Response to a Weapon of Mass Destruction Incident

Executive Training

For international terrorists, no site is sacred and no target left unthreatened – airports, security installations, government buildings, schools, universities, public transportation and hubs, shopping malls, high-rise buildings, open markets, stadiums, seaports, mass-attendance events, and public meeting places. And each venue has different challenges for security personal to overcome in properly protecting the public and key assets.

 

TAM-C Solutions’ executive training program provides security managers and executive decision-makers an intensive overview of the latest array of counterterrorism security solutions for a vibrant modern society.

Lessons Learned for Effective Decision-Making

Based on extensive experience with sophisticated and metastasizing forms of terrorism, Israeli civilian and government agencies have developed an integrated infrastructure of security, threat assessment, and threat mitigation. Lessons learned from each terror event are quickly shared and implemented at other venues, in order to create up-to-date and viable widespread deterrence.

It is these lessons learned that TAM-C Solutions shares in its executive training programs, including:

  • Tactical Planning and Command Operations
  • Incident Command for Government and Private sectors
  • Operational Security
  • Corporate Travel Security and Safety
  • Special and Large Event Operations
