SCaN for Security - Module 1

This module forms part of the SCaN for Security Managers programme. Those with managerial responsibility can share this with front-line security at an organisation, venue or event to further staff knowledge of hostile reconnaissance and how to help counter it. 

You can find out more about SCaN for Security managers and the wider SCaN programme by speaking to your local Counter Terrorism Security Advisor (CTSA).

  • See - understanding what hostile reconnaissance is and how to spot it
  • Check - knowing what to do if you suspect hostile reconnaissance or identify suspicious activity
