Best of GSX 2022: Physical Security Potpourri
Stay up to date on physical security topics with this curated package of GSX recordings.
Protecting assets demands a broad knowledge of physical security principles. Brush up on some of the fundamentals, including risk assessments, design, data and analytics, and public/private partnerships.
This Best of GSX package contains 5 recordings covering a variety of physical security topics.
This package includes:
- Public/Private Partnerships: Keeping Value in Long Lasting Partnerships
A historical challenge for sustaining long lasting public/private engagement has been in the value of the partnership. Opportunities to keep these needed relationships strong continues to be staying relevant to the trends of the day and an understanding of shared risk. Through communication and an environment that encourages collaboration, partnerships do not become stale but instead remain vibrant and active through valued intelligence, resource identification and networking opportunities. This session will include members of the public and private sector speaking to the value of the public/private partnership model and highlighting specific active resources currently available to support both sectors.
- Bias vs. Experience in Physical Risk and Vulnerability Assessments
Risk and Vulnerability Assessments are fundamental to the security profession, but they are only as good as the person preforming them. Findings and recommendations are influenced by an assessor's background, either inadvertently or consciously. Join our panel of security experts as they share their diverse backgrounds and approaches to performing risk and vulnerability assessments. Participants will partake in guided case studies to explore how their background could create an undesired bias and how they can make the most of their personal and professional experience when completing their own physical security assessments.
- Incorporating Security Technology into the Architectural Design Process
Too often security technologies are forced into a project after a design has been established and is well into the construction documentation phase. This approach does not take into account how specific equipment will best preform in the built environment, often relying on security technologies to overcome any shortcomings of the design and resulting in additional equipment and cost. Join our panel of security industry experts as they sit down to discuss strategies on incorporating security technology into the early stages of the architectural design process to achieve a more cohesive final solution. They’ll explore the challenges faced when selecting equipment for different spaces and simple spatial layout concepts, including CPTED, that will allow for greater performance from the technology systems.
- The Hole in Your SOC: Identifying and Solving the Gap in Your Corporate Security Protocol
As security professionals, we're good at protecting our employees inside our buildings. However, outside our buildings, protection is only afforded to executives (EP). What about the risks for commuters, lone workers, work from home employees, and travelers (domestic and international)? The “New Normal” of the last two years has heightened risks and concerns for all of these employees. This session will examine this “Personal Security Gap,” and the unresolved risks for your employees outside of company facilities. We’ll talk about the inconvenient truth regarding the shortcomings of public emergency response systems. Plus, we’ll discuss methods of scaling up your SOC’s capabilities to keep pace with employee demand and foster adoption of new security measures.
- Physical Transformation: How Data and Analytics Have Shifted the Physical Security Paradigm
Outside the physical security world, businesses are unlocking efficiency and value by digitizing old manual and analog processes. But screening technology hasn't fundamentally changed since the 1920s and is completely devoid of digital data. Old analog metal detectors, hand wands, and manual bag inspections are artifacts of a pre-digital age. Weapons screening sometimes feels like the land that time forgot. See how sensors and artificial intelligence are leading the way in transforming physical security and hear real-world case studies of security leaders who intelligently use data to create a frictionless experience for guests and employees that not only addresses the current environment, but also can adapt and flex to handle future needs.
