Stadium and Soft Target Security Resources

In the wake of the Manchester bombing, Security Management is committed to providing resources and expertise that address the protection of soft targets such as stadiums and public venues. Following are articles, reviews, and reports that can be used to understand the attack in a wider context as well as strengthen security measures.

Last night's attack took place exactly two months aftera man drove into a crowd of people then stabbed a police officer outside of the UK parliament, killing four.

The incident was reminiscent of the November 2015 attacks in Paris, which occurred outside of a stadium as well as in a concert venue. This 2016 article discusses stadium security and the fan experience.

Vehicle access to stadiums is another vulnerability that could be taken advantage of by attackers. There are a number of government resources and checklists for securing stadiums.
