Events – Risk 2 Solution Group | Published 18 April 2024

In an insightful and urgent response to recent violent incidents in Sydney, Risk 2 Solution successfully hosted a webinar titled “Active Attacks: What We Must Do Now” on 17 April 2024. The virtual event, moderated by Joe Saunders, brought together top experts in security and public safety to discuss proactive measures and responses to active attack scenarios.

The panel featured Dr Gav Schneider, CEO of Risk 2 Solution Group; Leanne Close APM, former Deputy Commissioner for National Security at the Australian Federal Police; and Dr David Bartlett, criminologist at Griffith University. These experts provided valuable insights into the multifaceted causes of such violence, the critical need for comprehensive training for security personnel, and the influence of social media on public perception and misinformation.

Key highlights from the webinar included:

  • The importance of understanding the motivations behind lone actors and the broader societal impacts of violence.
  • The critical role of continuous, comprehensive training to enhance the skills and preparedness of security personnel in public spaces.
  • A call for responsible information dissemination and reliance on verified sources to counteract misinformation and prevent desensitisation to violence.
