Dr Alasdair Marshall, an Associate Professor in Risk Management and a member of the Centre for Risk Research (CRR), recently delivered a presentation at this year’s UK National Security Summit, in Pall Mall, London. Dr Marshall’s presentation focused on how risk-based approaches to security can help the public and private sectors to work together more effectively. 

Also speaking at the summit was Wing Commander Shaun Ryles, a Senior Consultant with Global Security and Disaster Management Ltd, who is writing his PhD on ‘risk and resilience’ under the supervision of Dr Marshall and Dr Ian Dawson (Director of the CRR) at Southampton Business School. Shaun drew upon his specialist knowledge of counter-drone resilience planning to provide unique insights into managing the risks associated with unmanned aircraft. 

The summit, which was organised by Dods Parliamentary Communications Ltd and was held at the Institute of Directors building, was attended by senior delegates from central government, blue light services and the wider public sector. Some prominent topics covered at the summit included the new ‘fusion doctrine’ for coordinating national security strategy decisions across government, and the need for private and public sectors to work together to protect people and critical infrastructure.
