The Protect Duty App - Action Cards and Training

Give security staff instant access to knowledge for real-time response to serious security and terrorist threats.

The Protect Duty app is a free library of action cards for countering terrorist threats on your venue. Each action card contains practical information your venue and security staff need to safely resolve a terrorist attack.

Prepare staff to counter terrorist threats

As an operator of a publicly accessible place, Protect Duty legislation requires you to formally assess and mitigate terrorism risks.

The Protect Duty App provides your venue and security staff free access to counter-terrorism advice and training.

Our action cards provide recommended activities to be implemented in real-time to counter emerging terrorist threats. The app doubles up as a training reminder for best practice, with a built-in Q&A to test knowledge.

Available on iOS and Android, staff have instant access to this invaluable resource, always in their pocket.
