Even with the best counter-threat training, technology, and equipment, it may not be always possible to prevent attacks and incidents from occurring, but what can be done is this: Ensure proper prevention and preparation measures are in place.

WCTS is equipped with a wealth of knowledge in this area, and can provide advice, guidance, and training across a range of biometrics- and forensics-related counter-threat scenarios.
