Protecting Houses of Worship: Evolving Threats in an Ever-Changing Landscape
Acts of domestic terrorism are again in the headlines, starkly confronting us with the relentless growth of violence against ordinary citizens who are targeted for practicing their religion. On November 27, ASIS International presented a webinar open to the global community of security practitioners to briefly assess the facts at hand and consider the ramifications of this escalating violence. Drawing expertise from nationally recognized professionals charged with the security of religious institutions and facilities. The event includes a brief on some of the best practices for protecting congregations and discussion of available resources that go deeper into the core security principles, current technologies, and processes unique to the mission and environment of these institutions and facilities.
Key takeaways will include:
- Rapidly evolving threat landscape for houses of worship
- Key factors in preparedness, mitigation, and response
- Resources for guiding security planning for houses of worship
- Responding locally in the global context
