Corporate, School, and Healthcare Campus Security: What We Need Is a Plan
Get smart about linking security with emerging technology trends and proactive planning. Learn how to deploy safety and security policies and procedures to keep corporate campuses, schools, and healthcare facilities safe. Draw on the common threads for these facilities and offer planning, operations, and solution matching approaches. Through interactive discussions, learn where potential vulnerabilities might be and what simple, but extremely important, aspects may have been overlooked.

How to Make your Video System “Forensic Ready”
Recorded video and related data is one of the first and most important resources for incident review. But what is available in this data and what are the opportunities for industrial security, first responders, operations management, and safety and loss prevention professionals? To understand this, we first need to define what is included with this “forensic” video data and then apply a process for its use. Establish the capability for securely gathering legally admissible evidence to meet the requirement.
Command Center Experience: Design to Actionable Data
From the development and design of an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to the deployment of supporting man-machine interfaces and agency interoperability, the process of command center design is critical to the success of industry and public safety alike.
