The activity delivered by Protective Intelligence Network consisted in facilitating a major table top exercise simulating an international counter terrorism investigation against an al-Qaeda cell plotting a major terrorist attack.

Participants formed joint investigation teams and were called to develop a complex international investigation, involving more than six countries and numerous law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
