Are you worried about the threats from ISIS (ISIL), Al Qaida (AQ), Airport, Tube, Bus bombings or radicalisation in the UK? Is the UK under immediate threat? If you're feeling uneasy about using Public Transport, going to London, Flying, or generally anxious about what each day might bring, Keep Calm, the UK Government's counter terrorism strategy aims to reduce the risk from international terrorism, so that people can go about their business freely and with confidence. While the current terrorist threat presents many challenges, public safety is their absolute priority.
Terrorist Threat Level will keep you informed about the current threat, what you should do, who to contact and more..
The Government can never guarantee that attacks will not happen, but its security effort is dedicated to reducing the risk as much as possible. Assessments of the level and nature of the threat from international terrorism are made by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC); the Security Service is responsible for setting the threat levels for both Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Threat levels in themselves do not require specific responses from the public. They are a tool for security practitioners working across different sectors of the Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) and the police to use in determining what protective security response may be required. By its very nature, intelligence cannot be revealed completely and there will always be limitations to what they can say about security and the responses they have planned.
