Dec. 10 Webinar: How Do You Manage Risks at a Major Event?

November 11, 2019 Leave a comment DRI Admin
Join DRI for a look at how a major public event prepares for and plans against mega-sized risks with our next webinar on Dec. 10 at 10:00 a.m. ET/3:00 p.m. GMT!
One day after the announcement that London had won its bid to host the 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games, there was a series of bomb attacks on the London transport network, leaving many seriously injured and killing 52 people. This attack delivered a wake-up call as to the level of preparedness that London and the rest of the country would need for the Olympic Games.

In response to this call, the “London 2012, Olympic & Paralympic Safety & Security Strategy” was produced, a document that set the UK’s “risk appetite” and established certain key planning assumptions, not least that the Games would be based upon an assumed terrorist threat level of SEVERE.

This presentation will take you through the steps that were used during the preparation, planning and execution of the London Olympics and Paralympics Games, for which such “Mega Events” are classified as the “Greatest Show on Earth.”
