The SAFETY (Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology) Act has been in the news recently as MGM Resorts International seeks protection from lawsuits in the wake of the October 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas.

The SAFETY Act was written to promote the use of security products and services that deter, defeat, or mitigate a broad range of "terrorist" attacks. The act can provide liability protection to organizations of any size that invest in anti-terrorism products and services. The act specifically provides protection to organizations that employ professionals that are certified or trained in security best practices.

Join ASIS for a free online review of how the act shields from liability organizations that adhere to the law’s guidance on defending against such threats. The review will be led by Brian Finch, a partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. Brian is a leading authority on the SAFETY Act, and assisted ASIS in obtaining its SAFETY Act awards. Time will be set aside after the presentation to take audience questions.

Key Takeaways include:

  • How do ASIS Certified professionals and their employers’ benefit? 
  • How are users of ASIS Standards & Guidelines protected? 
  • What are the implications of the MGM case?
