Situational Awareness and Detecting Pre-Attack Indicator(s)
Situational awareness is more than see something, say something. Situational Awareness requires observation (seeing something), but it also requires an interpretation of what has been observed. This interpretation can then allow for prediction of potential outcomes. The better the observer's expertise on what has been observed, the more effective the interpretation and prediction.Imagine an active assailant attack as an X on a timeline. Everything after X is response and starts after the first gunshot. Everything before X is an opportunity to prevent or at least mitigate the attack. ALICE training builds a powerful platform of expertise, this session will highlight ways to enhance Situational Awareness to help identify Pre-Attack INdicators (PAINs) and make ALICE training even more effective.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
- Apply situational awareness to enhance safety
- Explain how the 20/10 Rule enhances Situational Awareness
- Understand how to establish a security baseline
- Explain why situational awareness observes changes to the base line
- Identify basic Pre-Attack INdicators (PAINs)
CPE credits for ASIS-sponsored webinars will be updated in your user profile within 48 hours of completion. Self-reporting of CPE credits is not required.
