Emerging threats and risks

The proliferation character of today’s CBRNe threats is drawing concern beyond defense circles. Many CBRNe threats are emerging not only due to the increased risk of nuclear weapons employments, but also state use of chemical weapons which increased over the last decades. Terrorist supported individuals that have been disrupted in performing biological, chemical and explosive acts in Western countries are also on the CBRNe threats list.

This session will focus on many aspects of the CBRNe threats including:

      • Emerging technologies to provide an overview of the challenges faced by first responders during a CBRNe event
      • Response of emergency response organisations and armed forces to new types of threats
      • Risks that challenge national and global security
