A lot has happened since the 2017 Manchester Arena attack, when 22 people sadly lost their lives. Fast forwarding to today, we have the Terrorism (Protection of Premises) draft bill.

Terrorism (Protection of Premises) more commonly known as ‘Martyn’s Law’, is a bill pending UK wide legislation that will place legal requirements on those responsible for publicly accessible locations and events, to consider the threat from terrorism and implement appropriate mitigation measures.

This webinar will discuss what organisations need to consider to be compliant, including organisations who will already have considered terrorism as part of their risk profile and organisations that now come into scope.

When you attend this webinar, you will:

  • Gain insight into what Martyn’s Law will mean for your organisation.
  • Learn what an in scope (qualifying) public premises is, and the difference between standard vs. enhanced duty premises.
  • Understand why the bill has been drafted and the potential associated enforcements and penalties.
  • Have a better understanding of evaluation and assessment of terrorism risk (assessments and training).
  • Hear about the implications of the bill from an insurer’s perspective.
