4BC Breakfast: Was the Martin Place siege a terrorist act or an act of terror?

According to Shannon Sedgwick, Senior Risk Consult at ZeroRisk “The terrorist acts aren’t half a world away anymore, the risk is very real. It’s right on our door step and it was proved last night”.

"I think this was an act of terror, he may have been influenced by a call to jihad made earlier this year by Islamic state, but I think this was just an act of terror".

"The terrorist acts aren't half a world away anymore, the risk is very real. It's right on our door step and it was proved last night".

As a specialist risk consultant and security contractor Shannon Sedgwick has worked extensively throughout the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

On 4BC Breakfast he joined Mark Braybrook to discuss how we as civilians can prevent incidents like this from occurring, the expected reaction from police and the likelihood of Islamic state involvement in the Martin Place siege.
