​This webinar will address emerging terrorist threats directed towards Houses of Worship and present cost-effective security strategies to protect them against these threats.  Threats against Houses of Worship historically have resulted from criminal attacks, but now include terrorist attacks. Participants will learn the Security Risk Assessment (SRA) approach for protecting Houses of Worship.  This approach can be applied to the protection of any facility; however, Houses of Worship will be the focus of this session. Attendees will receive copies of the SRA document created by the Cultural Properties Council – Houses of Worship Committee, which includes a detailed description of the process and a security checklist.

Participants will:

  • Review the history of threats against Houses of Worship and emerging threats
  • Learn the elements of the Security Risk Assessment (SRA) Process
