National Air Traffic Services (NATS) Physical Security Penetration Testing Exercise 

NATS is the UK's leading provider of air traffic control services. Each year they handle 2.2 million flights and 220 million passengers in UK airspace. In addition to providing services to 15 UK airports, NATS work in more than 30 countries around the world spanning Europe, the Middle East , Asia and America. NATS commissioned Trident to plan, develop and deliver a two-week physical security penetration testing exercise against a number of its facilities. The highly successful Trident physical security penetration testing exercise enabled NATS to clearly determine the effectiveness of its physical, technical and procedural security measures to a specified threat.

"Trident Operations Ltd undertook a range of security tests to ensure that the physical security defences and security awareness of staff were of an acceptable level to counter the perceived threats to our organisation.

The professionalism and skill of all the Trident operatives was first class. The detailed planning and execution of all testing activities was conducted to the highest standards. At all times Trident fully engaged with my planning team and a most satisfactory outcome was achieved for all of those involved.

Trident were a pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other security managers looking to have their security independantly tested and evaluated".

PB, Senior Security Adviser, NATS.

International Maritime Bureau Anti-Piracy Workshop

Trident Operations, delivered a presentation on 'Dealing with a Hijack Incident - Operational Level' and ran Exercise SOCOTRA; the Table-top exercise. The scenario-based exercise focussed on a commercial Tanker undertaking a passage through the Gulf of Aden and took delegates through the process of a Hijack incident. The exercise explored a range of issues faced by the Master and crew of a stricken vessel, as well as the important responses required from the corporate Incident Management Team.

"The Socotra table-top exercise highlighted the practical issues facing Owners and Masters as they transit the waters off Somalia. The delegates on the workshop advised that they found it useful."

Dorset Police 2012 Olympic Games Gold Level Counter Terrorist Exercise

Trident delivered a Gold Level, Maritime Counter Terrorist exercise to the Dorset Police 2012 Olympic Planning Team. The exercise was delivered in a seminar format to approximately 50 delegates, included the Chief Constable of Dorset Police and a number of senior Gold, Silver and Bronze level police officers and key stakeholders from the Operations and Planning Contingencies Division..

The exercise comprised of a combination of specialist maritime threat presentations and a realistic scenario-based table-top exercise, that formed the platform to explore a number of maritime and land-based security threats to a 2012 Olympic Games venue. Trident delivered the exercise with speakers and specialists from a number of fields including Counter Terrorism, Explosive Ordnance Disposal (land and maritime) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). High quality video media, employing security cleared news reporters was used to deliver realistic news broadcast serials and GIS after-action software was used to assist the review of discussion points and lessons learnt throughout the exercise.

"I was very impressed with the flexible approach that the Trident team took in assisting us with this important exercise. The quality of the inputs both face -to -face and the pre-prepared news feeds was of a very high order. Impactive inputs ensured a high level of participation"

Financial Times Media Group

A Trident consultant planned and delivered a one day Incident Management training exercise for the Financial Times Media Group as part of a teaming arrangement. The exercise scenario focussed on a kidnapped journalist in a foreign country. The exercise successfully practiced the Incident Management Team in time critical decision-making during a steadily escalating scenario. The exercise identified procedural issues and technical functions that required improvement, which were articulated in a post exercise report and action plan.

"The Exercise clearly identified gaps in our Serious Incident Plan and the preparation of the Incident Management Team. The Incident Management Team was given a clear reminder of the existing Serious Incident Plan and had valuable time to work together through an imaginative and realistic scenario"

Business Counter Terrorism Awareness Workshop

“I thought the scenarios were brilliant. I was stunned by my initial reaction to them. They really got you thinking about what you would do and how something like that could happen.

“Some of the arrangements we need to put in place are really straight forward and we just need to make sure that we have the information and procedures are available.

“The workshop definitely raised my awareness of the potential of what could happen and what to do. I would really recommend it.”
