Fukushima

On 11th March 2011, a 8.9 magnitude tremor hit 400km north-east of Tokyo, causing a tsunami along the north-eastern coast of Japan and resulting in a massive loss of lives and infrastructure damage - including damage to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The consequent release of radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has created numerous risks for the Japanese population including food and beverage irradiation concerns, home and workplace energy supply issues, contaminated debris disposal and the continuing risk of hydrogen explosions from the site.

Newrisk Limited's principal adviser, Dr Leivesley, has professional experience and is able to advise in dealing with nuclear explosions, radiological dispersal, radiation poisoning and the management of personnel in an irradiated environment.

          BREAKING NEWS

  • Terror 2017
  • Cyber 2017

New dangers are appearing from terrorism for the UK & other countries after the failed Parsons Green underground rail bombing.  Greater public preparedness is now important on what to do in an imminent emergency whether arising from bombs, knives, car ramming or shootings. Workplace training & exercising will help many commuters & will be transferred by them to their families & importantly will encourage parents to discuss emergency evacuations & procedures with any children who travel unaccompanied to school each day.   Newrisk Limited which is a founder member of The Exercise Group7 LLP, (TEG7) is now part of the team providing 14 bespoke courses to mitigate risk from cyber & terrorism & to develop greater awareness of protection under catastrophic risk events.   The TEG7 team work is built up from former military specialist skills & institutional cyber operations skills (www.teg7.co.uk).

Individuals can be encouraged to make their own personal protection plans to empower themselves for any unlikely emergency from terrorism so that they are quickly able to recognise an incident & protect themselves & people close-by to the best of their ability.  Personal plans may include understanding what may be seen or heard or smelt when in proximity to a threat, what materials in clothing give better durability in certain threat situations & what the timelines are for the best chances for survival & mitigation of injury & shock.  Psychological issues in the aftermath of a high threat incident are also important for awareness & self-help & seeking professional help is possible also in these upsetting situations when there has been a near death experience.

Personal information data loss from 400,000 British citizens has been reported by Equifax alongside 143 million Americans in an incident identified in September.  These large data losses provide the criminal world - as well as nation states that use hackers as proxies for defence & commercial information - with the means to undertake identity theft & to attack individuals & companies in many different ways.  Personal history details remain the same throughout life & passwords are frequently used across different areas of activity so that hacking of this scale inevitably exposes the workplace as well as the individual.

Newrisk Limited as part of the TEG7 (The Exercise Group 7 LLP) training initiative, is providing cyber risk mitigation & catastrophic risk training for companies & governments world-wide.  The TEG7 team work is built up from former military specialist skills & institutional cyber operations skills (www.teg7.co.uk). There are 14 courses designed for cyber & physical security to be managed in an integrated format along with an understanding of the extreme threats which are difficult to recognise but which threaten the sustainability of operations.
