Before you begin to plan and implement safety and security mitigation measures, it is extremely important to know what it is you are protecting against. You must, together with your safety and security partners, identify all potential threats to the safety and security of your event and assess the likelihood of them occurring and the potential impact they will have should they occur. This is the process of conducting a Threat and Risk Assessment.

The aim of the course ‘Threat and Risk Assessment’ is to provide you with information, best practices and a roadmap for how to conduct a threat and risk assessment of a sporting event. The core elements will be broken down into bite-sized pieces, using one lesson to concentrate on only one element to ensure that you really understand each element before you move on to the next. You will also be provided with a template which you can use to conduct a threat and risk assessment.

The course ‘Threat and Risk Assessment’ is delivered in an online virtual classroom environment using asynchronous learning strategies and technologies through the ICSS’s Learning Management System (LMS).
