CHS Hosts Former Head of Counter-Terrorism for the City of London
London is possibly the most resilient city in the world, and for good reason. Brett Lovegrove, the recently retired Head of Counter-Terrorism for the City of London and Metropolitan Police Service, commanded London’s response to the July 7, 2005 terrorist bombings targeting London’s public transport system during rush hour. Mr. Lovegrove discussed how the U.K. brings together the three critical disciplines of counter-terrorism, business continuity, and emergency planning and applies them to the strategic level resilience platforms in corporations and non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) in order to prevent, prepare for, mitigate, and recover from terrorist attacks.
Mr. Lovegrove, a long-time UCCS instructor in the Seminar in Transatlantic Civil Security (STACS) at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, made his first visit to Colorado Springs as a guest of CHS to attend the National Homeland Defense Foundation’s Annual Symposium, and to lecture at UCCS.
