Client’s Situation, Threats, and Challenges
Mass transit continues to be a highly attractive target to perpetrators of terrorist attacks and other mass violence. Aggressors’ easy-to-imitate tactics, increased targeting of large crowds, and the ability to conceal weapons require a multi-layer security posture. Therefor it is imperative for mass transit to have effective, prevention-oriented security measures.
