The terror threat level facing Singapore is at its highest in decades. While security agencies will do its utmost to protect us from an attack, a strong community response to the terrorist threat is important and necessary. Every member of Singapore’s business community must do our part by staying alert and united in order to safeguard our way of life. Singapore companies have an important role to play in our fight against terrorism. Our companies need to be prepared for the unexpected through public-private sector collaborations to ensure that Singapore stays strong and bounce back quickly in a crisis.



The Conference will bring together practitioners from various industries to share their observations and measures to prepare business leaders and employers against the threat of terrorism, and to stay resilient after an attack. Visit our exhibition to understand how you can quickly adopt measures to better address security issues and related risks for your organisation.
