Introducing MARTYN's Law
Counter terrorism training

We are committed in assisting the UK government to help improve the safety and security of public spaces and venues as outlined in its 2019 manifesto, and more recently, as part of the consultation process for Martyn’s Law.

One of the main requirements for the new legislation will be for businesses to obtain Counter Terrorism (CT) Advice and undertake CT training.  The new legislation will ensure that those responsible for locations can improve their security by early interventions and be ready and prepared to take the appropriate action, should a terrorist attack happen. MaST and Crisicast joint training solutions will ensure that your business and personnel are compliant ready, and understand the importance of having simple and available ‘true to life’ awareness training as part of any new staff and refresher programme.

Take a look at our suite of online learning packages below and allow us to build the necessary elements in order to help your staff identify the signs of hostile reconnaissance and how to take appropriate actions.

Behavioural Detection

This entry-level course in the basics of Behavioural Detection creates an organisation-wide culture of involvement in risk reduction and keeping public spaces protected by spotting a threat before it becomes one. This need is relevant to any crowded place that needs to reduce its threat risk - retail businesses, entertainment and sports venues, airports, ports, rail stations – just by involving employees in the team effort to keep themselves and their organisation safe.

Dramatised Learning
Cyber Security Awareness

Based around a three part drama, this course examines essential learning for entry level cybersecurity. Recently promoted at work, our hero posts her new job on LinkedIn, unaware that hackers are targeting exactly that sort of post. She gets hit with a ransomware attack on her new work laptop last thing on Friday and has the weekend to try to sort things out with the help of her old boyfriend who is something of a geek - which causes some discomfort for her current boyfriend … who isn’t. This is one of our best sellers - including a mandated roll out for one of the four big banks to all global employees.
