Marc Kahlberg is a leading expert on counter terrorism and strategic facility protection. Marc uses his vast experience to impart knowledge, practical skills and information, in order to highlight vulnerabilities within agencies and organizations. His skills will ensure that the audience level of awareness of security protocols and technologies is raised. He has recently completed his first book which is expected to be published late 2011.

Marc Kahlberg has been involved in training and advising Israel’s police units as well as International police agencies and organizations throughout the world since 1998.

He has worked amongst terrorists, who murdered innocent children, whilst serving in the Israel Defense Force at maximum security military prisons. Marc served as a detective in various intelligence units where he dealt with organized crime families, human trafficking rings, and established and commanded a specialized police unit in Netanya.

Marc Kahlberg responded to 49 terrorist attacks including the Park Hotel where he lost friends and physically carried out body parts of those massacred in the carnage of terror. Today, Marc’s in depth understanding of a terrorist’s psyche enables him to ensure that his strategies are forward thinking and his security protocols are both futuristic in nature and execution. He was spokesman for Israel’s Police force to all International media during the disengagement from Gaza in 2005. Marc is a frequent commentator for the Jerusalem Post and has appeared on many International television and radio networks, including CNN, CBS, Fox, BBC and more.

Marc has taught and lectured to amongst others the FBI, NYPD, US Customs and Border, The Manhattan Institute, South African Police, Botswana Police, the Nelson Mandela University and more. His creation of the “Secure Zone Concept” as a method of thwarting terror attacks has held International acclaim and application, and is now being used successfully around the world. The success of the security throughout the 2010 soccer world cup in South Africa is a prime example of the concepts accomplishments.

Marc’s special interests are intelligence as well as diplomacy, foreign policy of Israel and its international relations campaign through the media.

Marc has spent over 20 Years conducting field research on the relations between the Palestinian Islamists, jihadists and Israel. He is the writer of many white papers which have been transformed into policing policies and procedures.

In 2002 Marc was honored by the Israeli Minister of Police and the Israeli National Police Chief for his innovation, in not only reducing the terror threat, but cutting the crime rate in his jurisdiction by 70%.
