What this blog is about 

This site, called Criminal Threat Management is about how to use available resources to identify, guide, counter or neutralise those persons that have intent to harm others – Threat actors. Criminal Threat Management will look at how to identify and manage a person, organisation or country that is, or has, developed harmful intentions. This combination of factors is called Threat Management, which can be defined as the “coordinated use of resources to guide, counter or neutralize the behavioral process taken from the development of criminal intent up to the point of actuating a physical crime”.

Why use the services or read the posts from this site? Don’t traditional security and risk management measures counter the risk posed by threat actors?

Professional criminals, terrorists, insurgents and state-based threat actors take the time to gather intelligence that can bypass or defeat security or risk management measures that have been put in place by their intended target. For those persons who must develop measures to ensure the safety of their assets, the identification and management of threat actors can enhance and prevent attacks. Criminal Threat Management can provide valuable information and resources to assist in that identification and management.


What you will find on this Criminal Threat Management site.

With the site being about the management of threat actors, you will find posts and services that will show how to identify a person or group that is developing the intention to harm others. These persons could be radicalised individuals, criminals of varying types, terrorist groups or state-based governments. You will also find posts that provide information on ways to guide, counter or neutralise threat actors that have been identified prior to those actors making an attack. Finally, you will also find posts and services that can be useful in applying various strategies and tactics to defeat a threat actor once that actor has initiated their attack.
