Operations Planning and Organization Planning
Start at the beginning by defining the needs and goals of the various components of a security system. As a group, you will identify these needs and create a “plan.”
Do you know how to prepare and monitor your scope? Learn when a critical milestone starts and ends and who needs to be involved in planning and managing it. Determine what a management plan is as well as when and how it is applicable.
Basic System Design and Layout
Learn about system layout strategies. Discuss when to design and who should design systems, expectations, infrastructure, and more. Find out how the design and layout relates to system specification and procurement. Learn how to convert your plan into a design.
Learn to use electronic access control systems, strategies, and coordination. Implement integration concepts with other systems.
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
What is CPTED? Learn how and why it applies. Focus on how to implement CPTED and how lighting is involved. Examine good and bad examples and guidelines.
Building and Life Safety Codes
Why is it important to follow building and life safety codes when building a security plan? Examine some key points to be considered.
Focus on network physical and logical infrastructure as well as aspects of network security. Leave with a comprehensive plan to develop the core of a network infrastructure—the wiring plan. Layers of network devices and infrastructure discussions are added and provide the user a strong overview of the network they are using to transmit information or to monitor.
Locks and Life Safety
What are physical security considerations at door openings? Learn to determine which types of locks suit the plan and purpose.
Intrusion Sensors and Detection Systems
Receive an overview of sensor technology as well as its tradeoffs, limitations, and benefits. Determine how an alarm system is part of access control and be able to demonstrate that in a workshop exercise.
Learn about video architecture and in an exercise demonstrate your plan for achievable results. Find out where video surveillance is oversold and avoid common "gotchas” in your plan.
What is a Gantt chart or Schedule of Values? This portion of the workshop focuses on operations strategies, value derived strategies, opportunities to improve operations, and pitfalls to avoid. Learn to create both of these items in order to understand the correlation between the plan and the implementation.
Class Group Exercises
The class incorporates both individual and group exercises dividing into teams to develop (with assistance from instructors) security solutions and deliver their results to the class. Applications: Review your plan and determine proper scheduling, ordering, coordination strategies and billing. Technology: Review of floor plans and determine proper places to install security devices.
