Implicit Bias and Security Professionals | 21 Feb. 2018, 15:00 – 16:00 ET
Implicit biases have particular relevance for private safety/security professionals who must make consequential decisions regarding who is a threat, who is telling the truth, who needs further scrutiny. Decisions by security professionals based on their biases–which can manifest outside of conscious awareness–can make those personnel ineffective, unsafe and unjust. This webinar will provide an overview of the science of implicit bias, discuss how those biases might show up in the daily routines of front-line private security personnel, and discuss implications for change.

Recently Updated Standard:
Management System for Quality of Private Security Company Operations-Requirements with Guidance (PSC.1)
Consistent with ANSI requirements, the ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012 Standard was evaluated by a technical committee comprised of industry users and managers, producers and service providers, as well as government, academia, and other interested stakeholders to consider possible changes based on applicable laws, regulations, international agreements, and/or other factors impacting the standard's use. Reaffirmation signifies that no substantive changes to the standard were necessary.
The PSC.1 Standard establishes a mechanism for private security providers and their clients to provide demonstrable commitment, conformance, and accountability to the principles outlined in the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers and the Montreux Document.
