Breakfast Briefing: ​​​​​​​Thursday 16 June 2022, 8am for 8.30am to 9.30am BST

Resilience First is delighted to convene a breakfast discussion, in partnership with Pool Re and the National Preparedness Commission, on the latest report (London Prepared: A City-Wide Endeavour) commissioned by London’s Mayor on the capital’s ability to meet and respond to terrorist attacks with the report author, Lord Toby Harris, Chair of the National Preparedness Commission.

The Breakfast Briefing will be chaired by Simon Collins, Chair of the Resilience First Board and will include a panel discussion with experts from Pool Re and PA Consulting on specialist terrorism risk and city resilience.  

London remains at a substantial level of alert to terrorist activity. In recent years, there have been incidents at Westminster Bridge, London Bridge, Fishmongers Hall, and Parsons Green. Lord Harris’ report is a review of the 2016 report on terrorist activity in London and considers what the city has learnt since then and assesses our current state of readiness with 294 recommendations and a section, with six recommendations, specifically for the business sector.

This breakfast briefing will discuss the latest thinking on the role of business in managing the response to and the recovery from terrorist activity in the capital and will help London’s business community plan its preparedness and security as part of a city-wide endeavour.
