"London, August 15th 2005: With just three weeks to go, the countdown
to Global Security Week (5-11th September 2005) has begun. Final
preparations are in hand for a variety of public and private sector
security awareness initiatives.
Global Security Week will take place at the start of next month.

preparation of security awareness activities to take advantage of the
general media focus on security in the lead up to September 11th.

actually being prepared for such situations can literally make the
difference between life and death for people, and survival or
bankruptcy for corporations.
