Texas A&M HSC Homeland Security Office to Host Suicide Bombers Conference

December 5, 2005

Texas A&M Health Science Center’s Office of Homeland Security will host a statewide conference on suicide bombers and homeland security to provide the “know-how” about the typology, methodology motivation, preparation, bombs and techniques used by suicide bombers. The conference will be held at the Ramada Inn in College Station on Dec. 6-7.
The conference is intended for advanced levels of government and security personnel but will also serve as a learning tool for security managers of government buildings, schools and safety officers and law enforcement.
Tal Hanan, a former Israeli Special Forces Explosive Ordinance Unit Deputy Commander and conference presenter, has made presentations to members of the Secret Service, Naval Intelligence, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, Congressional Armed Forces committee staffers and other members of federal, state and local agencies. He has also lectured and consulted in Israel, Europe, South and Central America and Africa.
Methods used by Middle Eastern terror networks in recruiting, communication and employing terror attacks, lessons learned and experienced from recent suicide bombings, the importance of preventions and how-to detect attacks and how-to respond safely to events that have bombs or bombers will all be covered.
