VSE’s Executive Director Levent Altan spoke at the LinCT-AA conference 2022, an annual meeting of the world’s leading counter-terrorism and security experts.
Hundreds of delegates attended the event, sharing best practice and knowledge from law enforcement and intelligence agencies across the globe.
Keynote speakers included experts from policing, the security services and the private sector, with collaboration and innovation being highlighted as core priorities.
Amongst the issues discussed at the 2022 conference were international intelligence gathering, Protect Duty, radicalisation in prisons and Extreme Right Wing Terrorism.
Levent Altan participated in the panel session ‘Victims’ Perspective’. The discussion focused on victim-centered approach, importance of international relationships and recent international CT table top training exercise conducted by Invictim and Oscar Kilo, and supported by the LinCT alumni.
The Leadership in Counter Terrorism (LinCT) program was first created in 2004, as a leadership project between the FBI, Scottish Police College, PSNI, The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Harvard University and St Andrews University.
Since then the program has evolved to include a significant number of new partners, but the core purpose of preventing terrorism remains.
The LinCT-AA conference is held annually, with previous events being held in New York, Melbourne, Sydney, Toronto and Los Angeles.
