#1: WEBINAR – Emergency Preparedness and Your Building’s Liability: May 8 – 1PM EDT
Register Today! 

Mass shootings have been on the rise for decades, but changes in liability mean every business needs to take steps to mitigate their risks. Security and facilities professionals can no longer claim they didn’t see a mass shooting coming. It can happen anywhere, and it’s vital to prepare for this ongoing security threat and understand your role in preventing and mitigating loss of life. Every organization and facility needs a comprehensive plan that accounts for mass shooting risk, covers how to save lives if a mass shooting occurs, and makes use of all available resources to stop or intercept active shooters.

This webinar will discuss strategies for active shooter prevention, evacuation and mustering, and mass notification and alert technologies.

Main Learning Points:

  • Understand the concept of foreseeability and how a building owner or manager can be held responsible for the actions of an individual.
  • Learn how security and facilities personnel can work together to anticipate risk and prepare for the worst.
  • Learn best practices for evacuation and mustering.
  • See how mass notification and alert technologies play a role in saving lives.

#2: WEBINAR – Physical Security for Facility Managers: May 15 – 1PM EDT
Register Today! 

Building safety and security requirements have been redefined in recent years and physical security systems need to keep up. They’ve evolved from handling video surveillance and access control to becoming key to an organization’s digital transformation. The primary goal of a physical security system is to keep people, facilities and assets safe. These functions are often interdependent and work best when they are unified on a single platform. Creating a strategic approach that is holistic and stresses policy and technology unification gives users a consistent experience across security tasks.

This webinar will discuss how facility and security management can assess your building’s technology needs and properly integrate your access control, video surveillance, panic alarms, lockdowns, visitor management, smart building tech and more.

Main Learning Points:

  • How to plan and implement a unified physical security platform
  • What does systems integration really mean and how can it work in your facility
  • How can you use technology to improve situational awareness and enable better decision-making
  • What does an open-architecture systems approach do to enhance security and your bottom line
  • Why cybersecurity is now a priority during physical security design and deployment
  • Why a connected solution with building automation tools can provide even greater protection and efficiencies for building operations

#3: WEBINAR -- What Is Proptech and Why Security is a Key Element:May 22 -- 1 PM EDT
Register Today! 

Proptech refers to the use of technology in the research, design, analysis, and management of residential and commercial properties to make the process more efficient, secure, financially viable, sustainable, and streamlined. Proptech has recently seen a boom in investment. In 2021 alone, there was $32 billion (USD) in capital invested in proptech alone. Proptech is white-hot, and many experts believe we have entered a new era in how commercial buildings operate and, more importantly, how tenants, visitors and residents expect buildings to function.This webinar will discuss why Proptech is white-hot, and why many experts believe we have entered a new era in how commercial buildings operate and, more importantly, how tenants, visitors and residents expect buildings to function and how facilities are approaching security policy and technology.

  • Main Learning Points:
    • How Proptech allows property owners, managers, and landlords to manage their assets with more efficiency, ease, and flexibility
    • How Proptech solutions can work to create a better experience for buildings and tenants, taking the form of a mobile key card that replaces a physical key card or fob for secure access to the facility. Or a software solution that allows decision-makers to collect data to decrease operational costs and overhead.
    • How Edge and AI are teaming up to form a comprehensive Proptech solution for physical security involving the use of security hardware, but also employing the data in a much more productive and efficient way
    • How Proptech is driving direct digital engagement, which refers to the interaction with technology that would otherwise have to be with a person or non-digital system. Some of the most prominent real estate technology solutions include touchless access control systems, contactless visitor management and digital registration/sign in and cloud-based security systems with remote management
    • How Proptech solutions are advancing the ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) movement help property managers stay accountable and improve overall facility operation, sustainability and quality.

#4: VIDEO ROUNDTABLE - Lessons Learned: A Security & Risk Roundtable – May 29 -- 1 PM EDT
Register Today! 

A successful workplace violence prevention program should be based on the implementation of effective programmatic elements that drive the program forward. These elements include multidisciplinary involvement, risk assessment, threat assessment and management, policy, documentation, and training. So, what does implementing a good workplace violence prevention program entail for organizations? Some clear fundamental building blocks must be in place to withstand legal scrutiny; but it is more important to simply do the right thing to protect staff from acts of workplace violence, ranging from a lack of civility and verbal abuse to lethal attacks with a variety of weapons.

  • Statistics are a strong reminder that violence in the workplace is more common than we might think, but workplaces can take specific measures to prevent and lessen the impact of violence. When you know how to prevent workplace violence, you can be part of the solution and make your company a safer place for all employees. This webinar will deal with best practices for preventing workplace violence and how to integrate technology into a mitigation solution.

    Main Learning Points:
  • Why workplace violence prevention begins with hiring. Conducting a thorough background check on potential employees and having strict vetting process is mandatory
  • How harassment and bullying create an offensive work environment and subsequently often serve as a warning for violence. Why creating a policy to prevent harassment is a crucial step in preventing the possibility of violence
  • How do you establish strict anti-violence policies and how these policies can empower your team to report violent and harassing behaviors and other signs of danger
  • How to build out a security monitoring strategy and properly manage visitors and vendors. Whether security guards are patrolling your facility/parking lot, capturing video surveillance, or overseeing a visitor check-in desk, these are all extra layers of security that can deter someone from performing a violent incident
  • How staff can identify organizational risk factors that might trigger a workplace violence incident and the training necessary to help educate them
  • How to design and implement effective security technology deterrents using access control, video surveillance and panic button devices
  • How to implement effective lockdown procedures and active-shooter training and maintain a consistent approach to reinforcement
