Protect is the workstream of the counter-terrorism strategy that aims to strengthen our protection against terrorist attacks in the UK or against our interests overseas.

Increasing resilience

Along with Prepare, this contributes to increasing our resilience.

In Protect we are responding to recent threats to aviation security and strengthening our border security.

Work will continue to strengthen protective security and promote the resilience of the UK’s national infrastructure. Protect will build on work to reduce the vulnerability of other forms of transport, and of crowded places.

Objectives of Protect

From 2011-2015 our Protect objectives will be to:

  • strengthen UK border security
  • reduce the vulnerability of the transport network
  • increase the resilience of the UK’s infrastructure
  • improve protective security for crowded places
