On April 7, 2017, an ISIS-inspired terrorist killed four people using a stolen beer truck in Stockholm. On December 19, 2016, another company’s truck was hijacked and driven into a crowd in a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12. How do you prevent your truck from being next?
The TSA report lists several ways that commercial vehicles may be obtained from your site. The risks, along with tips to avoid being the next victim, are listed below.
TSA provides more detailed guidance to combat these threats. It is up to all of us to do our part.
An attack on one of us affects us all as Americans. But it also affects business. During times of crisis, the police must remain focused on the threat, leaving your site vulnerable to intrusion. The first goal of the police remains protecting the public. You should prepare your site now.
As TSA states in its report, “no community, large or small, rural or urban, is immune” to attack. “Good security is good business. TSA recommends that you take an active role in protecting your business and your community from this potential threat.”
