This presentation introduces the concept of Threat Management, which is a management strategy that focuses on human-centric threat actors. Threat Management seeks to identify and counteract the criminal development pathway process from initial intent up to the point of actual physical attack. By focusing on the pathway of the criminal development process and a person’s or group’s intention and attack planning cycle, opportunities can be identified to guide, counter or neutralise the threat actor prior to an attack. Further, how to apply this strategic strategy across operational and tactical protective security environments will be demonstrated.
