Project ARGUS is a National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) initiative, exploring ways to aid you in preventing, handling and recovering from a terrorist attack. It achieves this by taking businesses through a simulated terrorist attack.

NaCTSO has developed a series of Project ARGUS sessions that are adapted to suit different sectors: Retailers; Bars and Restaurants; Hotels and “Argus Professional”, which is for architects, planners and engineers. The forthcoming session is the “Retailer” scenario, which is ideally suited to office based and retail sector colleagues.
