Chemical Threats: Further Information

Newrisk Limited is available to advise organisations and governments on chemical threats including chemical incident prevention and response.

Newrisk Limited and its principal adviser, Dr Leivesley, have designed and overseen the construction and training programmes for a pioneering chemical rapid response unit designed to operate in urban areas and in remote areas accessible only by plane. This unit was established following a review of fire brigades throughout Queensland which led to the formation of a modernised fire service, supported by the chemical response unit.

Technical assessments and risk advice has also been provided to rail authorities for hazardous goods management, investigations of road and rail chemical incidents as well as site risk assessments and field exercises on chemicals storage sites and hazardous chemicals on critical infrastructure (such as power stations and water treatment sites).

Chemicals in confined space environments (such as tunnels and buildings) have formed part of the work to protect the public from accidents and terror attacks. Exercises for rail and rail/airport interfaces have also been undertaken for governments and have involved various forms of chemical agents that may be used by terrorists in an attack on urban infrastructure.

Newrisk Limited and its principal adviser, Dr Leivesley, have provided media commentary, lectures, conference papers, workshops and publications on this topic, examples of which are set out below. To return to an overview of Newrisk Limited's chemical threat expertise, please click here.

          BREAKING NEWS

  • TEG7
  • Cyber Threats

In response to the Paris & Brussels terror attacks, Newrisk Ltd became a founder member of The Exercise Group7 LLP (TEG7) which is a dynamic team drawn from cyber & former special defence fields to exercise organisations & governments on emerging terror and cyber threats.  The TEG7 profile can be seen at www.teg7.co.uk. The Manchester Arena suicide bombing in May 2017 highlights a new military style of terrorism from ISIS with a greater potential to attack the public & security personnel in many countries.  TEG7 integrates physical & cyber security for corporate exercises to protect against terror & cyber-attacks.

Delta & British Airways have suffered a world-wide loss of aviation business systems as a result of computer system outages.  Newrisk Limited - as part of The Exercise Group7 LLP - conducts exercises in integrated cyber & physical security transformation for companies & governments.  Cyber threats are becoming more serious for critical infrastructure & require new principles in management & exercises of personnel to pre-empt crises. Degraded operations will become a fall-back if persistent attacks continue to exploit vulnerabilities & use ransomware or nation state motivated attacks. The Ukraine power grid attacks are a key lesson for infrastructure protection. Aviation remains the industry ‘canary’ for cyber failures.
