About the team

Preparing for the non-conventional threat

CBRNe World magazine, published bi-monthly by Falcon Communications Ltd, serves the information needs of professionals around the world charged with planning for or responding to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosives (CBRNe) threat or incident.
Spanning the divide of operational and scientific, it brings together opinion formers from the world of civil response, military leaders, academia, government agencies, research labs and industry. Combining the already merging fields of CBRN and explosives together in one magazine, editorial content is a combination of qualitative and researched news, interviews, articles, surveys and regular columns.

Zoe Rutherford

Zoe Rutherford

Marketing & Communications Manager


Zoe worked for the NHS in London for 16 years, 12 of which were spent in a mortuary setting working up from Trainee Anatomical Pathology Technologist to Mortuary Manager. She developed a love for all things CBRN when she began assisting with post mortem examinations on Individual Chemical Exposure (ICE) cases in 2009. The cases were primarily suicides involving Hydrogen Cyanide and Hydrogen Sulphide with the odd ‘unknown chemical’ thrown in to keep her on her toes. She spent a lot of time working with the Metropolitan Police Dedicated CBRN Unit and HART on these cases and this made for a great educational experience and enhanced her interest in not only the chemicals she was dealing with but also the different types of PPE available, types of DIM equipment and how they worked etc. In 2017 she joined the CBRNe World team as the Marketing & Communications Manager where she could continue indulge her passion for all things CBRNe.
