This course is designed for leaders who currently have security and crisis management responsibilities in public or private organizations, security professionals that may wish to transition from the public to the private sector and those with security responsibilities in organizations that operate in high risk environments.
Today’s complex global security risk environment dictates that your organization must be prepared to protect its people, assets, infrastructure and reputation from a myriad of ongoing threats and risks everywhere it operates in the world. This is especially true in high risk environments.
Those with security responsibilities in organizations that operate in high risk environments need to develop comprehensive security programs that will provide a slate of capabilities including risk assessments, intelligence acquisition, an alerts and warning system, site security planning, a travel security process, accommodation security, tracking capability, crisis management, business continuity and communications planning, hostile environment and anti-kidnapping training and evacuation and extraction planning. They need to have the right resources, the right planning in the right location at the right time.
Guided by a security professional who led global security operations for a Fortune 500 company and who has built international security programs for other Canadian organizations, participants will learn, through discussion, case studies and exercises how to use influence, good communications and cross-functional collaboration to build a comprehensive security and crisis management framework to secure your organization in a high risk environment.
