This well-rounded seminar focuses on a range of issues of concern to security officers, facility personnel, and management.  Using current trends and examples, a variety of topics will be covered as highlighted below.


National Security Update | AI: What is Ahead
Security issues and priorities change on a daily basis, requiring the Security Manager to remain topically informed, assess the impact of those changes and adjust the security model for the entire institution. Crime trends and the evolution of critical legal issues should be as important as media headlines to the Board of Directors, who relies upon the Security Manager to stay topically current, in order to make informed decisions and reports to the Board of Directors. This segment contains “briefing” information about new and emerging events that will likely affect the security function.

Active Shooter: The Warning Signs
Active Shooter events just don’t happen! This program will review the warning signs that one of your staff members or visitors might display before an actual event. The FBI has issued the report, “A Study of the Pre-Attack Behaviors of Active Shooters in the United States,” which serves as the basis for this session. We will review behaviors that many shooters display before an attack. Awareness of a person’s surroundings when an event occurs will be discussed. This session will have no physical contact and no attendees will be asked to participate in an actual demonstration or mock training exercise.

Conducting a Physical Security Review and Risk Assessment
This information packed program will provide you with a recipe on how to conduct your annual security review. No longer can you just use a checklist to determine if your financial institution is safe. We will instruct you on how to think like a criminal to protect your assets, information, and people. Today, the criminal world attacks your institution via computer, customers, and social engineering ploys. Your annual review should find or correct problems with physical security, robbery procedures, and staff training.

Focus Group and Case Studies
The Bank Protection Act mandates that all of your employees must be trained about the institution’s security policies and procedures. But what about the Security Manager? Who trains him/her about making critical decisions that are often required by the security function’s personnel? There are so many opportunities for the Security Manager to make inappropriate decisions – particularly during a crisis event. Making effective, critical decisions requires education, training and experience – and it’s the “experience” part that is the most difficult to acquire. Working within the nation’s military services, in law enforcement or in emergency management fields will provide that experience. Working as a banker won’t. This fast-moving session will provide training in handling crisis situations.

Internal Fraud: A Look at the Thieves from Within
Regulations specify that the Security Officer must report to the board annually and that the implementation, administration, and effectiveness of the security program be addressed. What exactly the Security Officer should report to the board is not clearly identified in the regulations. This interactive session will review best practices relating to training, inspections, and foreseeable events that should be reported to your board.
