Workshop Take-Aways

Upon completion of this workshop, students can expect to learn a broader holistic approach to security assessments, beyond physical security considerations, access control and installing surveillance equipment. The planning, processes and approaches direct students on how to thoughtfully approach security standards and develop an overall plan. By following these methods, facility managers, first responders and security professionals can expect to lower project management and capital costs while approaching security comprehensively. Students may immediately identify flaws with their current security planning and installations. Students may also seek advanced training certification through ASIS, or request help from our instructors for more comprehensive security needs.
