Data on mass shootings show a 40% increase in the number of mass shootings from 2014 to 2016. According to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics, shootings were the cause of 85% of workplace homicides in 2015. Terrorist and active shooter attacks on society have created a sense of terror, often played out in false active shooter alarms that have caused panic behavior in crowds, stampedes, and social media “trending.” For organizations, response to both real and perceived active shooter events can have long-term effects including damage to brand and exposure of security weaknesses to the public. The key is to create multi-layered policies and procedures to respond during and after a crisis event.

In this online seminar, Mr. Richard Serino, Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Harvard University National Preparedness Initiative and former Deputy Administrator of FEMA, will go beyond the basic teachings of active shooter preparedness.
