Data-driven terrorism and security risk assessments. Anywhere in the world. Anytime.

Tera (Terrorism Risk Assessor) uses a combination of real-time and historical data to assess the exposure and vulnerability of any address, asset or geographical location in the world to terrorism. Simply complete the online assessment and Tera will generate a detailed terrorism risk assessment report with your threat and vulnerability scores and recommended actions. Available as a web app or as an API.

How does it work?


Tera collects data via a detailed online assessment, capturing details such as the location of a property, its associated parties, and its security layout.


The details collected from the online assessment are amplified using real-time and historical data.  A scoring algorithm then processes all data into risk scores and assigns appropriate recommendations.


The outcomes of the analysis are automatically delivered in a detailed PDF report with rich textual and visual content.

Why should you use Tera?

It’s automated

A security audit performed by a security consultant can take anywhere from 10 to 20 hours to perform the assessment and draft a report. With Tera, a comprehensive security audit can be performed by anyone, with all of the analysis and report writing taken care of by Tera. Simply answer the questions on the online assessment form and Tera will analyse your answers, write up your complete and detailed risk assessment report for you, and then send it to you via email as a PDF attachment. 

It works on any address, asset or location in the world.

Tera uses global data, allowing it to work on any address, asset or geographical location in the world. As long as you can locate it on a map, Tera can assess its exposure to terrorism using real-time and historical data covering the entire globe whether that means a shop in Baghdad or a stadium in London.

It’s driven by real-time data

Real-time information about an asset is gathered at the time of assessment to capture features such as the prominence of an asset based on its online profile and footprint. Tera understands where an asset is located and how neighboring assets affect its level of risk. Tera can even detect changes in the online presence of an asset over time that may result from media coverage or special events.

It’s aligned to global best practice

Tera is question for question directly aligned with the ANZCTC Crowded Places Security Audit, meaning you meet your obligations under the National Strategy for Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism. In addition to this, Tera also aligns with best practice set by the US Department of Homeland Security, the UK National Counter-Terrorism Security Office and other leading security and counter-terrorism agencies around the world. 


Reduction in time to complete

It’s (very) time and cost-efficient

Using Tera means you can complete a security audit and get a complete report in less than 60 minutes compared to 10 to 20 hours. Tera is also only 5-10% the cost of an equivalent security risk assessment performed manually by a security consultant. If you are a security consultant, you can also use Tera to save you time and massively scale how you deliver expertise and advice.
