The active assailant threat landscape is constantly evolving. Stories of workplace violence and mass shootings dominated the news throughout 2021, and are on an upward trend. Although many, if not most, organizations have developed robust strategies and tactics for the mitigation and response to this type of hazard, the nature of the current threat environment is exceptionally complex and dynamic.

But what if you were able to get ahead of these emerging active assailant threats? While it is difficult to predict what challenges the future may hold, we can better predict how employees and other critical stakeholders may react to certain situations. The ability to form accurate behavioral assumptions can give an organization's leaders a strategic and tactical advantage in managing active assailant threats. In addition, smart technologies can provide ongoing awareness to situational threats and can activate automated emergency response plans when danger arises. Active assailant incidents evolve quickly; time lost to denial, disbelief or indecision can be costly.

Understanding human behavior and integrating the human element with the use of smart technology is imperative in effectively planning for an active shooter incident. In this informative session, you will gain insights on:

  • Why the active shooter threat landscape is changing and how this affects safety, security, and business continuity
  • Forward-thinking actions that individuals and organizations can take to mitigate harm in the future
  • Considerations for holistic incident planning and improved communications
