Monday 22 October 2018

John Casson has just returned from TINYg’s counterterrorism conferences in New York and London.

Following a meeting with David Evans, founder and co-chair of the Terrorist Information New York Group (TINYg), John Casson has accepted a board appointment with TINYg.

‘I am honoured to have been invited and delighted to accept,’ said John. ‘I believe that with my police background, my career in international security and my close business dealings with both UK and US organisations, together with my interest in counterterrorism, I can make a meaningful contribution to TINYg.’

TINYg brings law enforcement and intelligence agencies together with many blue-chip companies from the UK, US and around the world through a series of annual conferences and meetings.

At the recent conference held at Deutsche Bank in Wall Street, New York, delegates were briefed on active terrorist groups, including ISIS and Al-Qaeda, and counterterrorism measures. Speakers included Charles E. Berger, FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge, New York office, counterterrorism division; Alexandra Elena Skoler, Intelligence Research Specialist, NYPD; and Chief John Donohue, Chief of Strategic Initiatives, NYPD.

A few days later, a similar well-attended conference was held at Barclays’ headquarters in Canary Wharf, London, with speakers including Alistair Sutherland QPM, Assistant Commissioner, City of London Police; Dean Haydon QPM, Senior National Coordinator, counterterrorism policing, Metropolitan Police; and Peter Neumann, from the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence, King’s College London.
