Description

We must begin by asking ourselves "Why MUST I prepare myself and my staff for an active threat?" Attacks against the hospitality industry are occurring more frequently and they are becoming more catastrophic in nature. We are living in an era of asymmetric and unconventional warfare; and a terror attack against a hotel or convention any place on the globe sets a template for other terrorist organizations to follow. 

Mentally preparing for an active threat and having a plan is a small investment of time and energy, and we hope that you will never need it. But "hope" is not a tactic, and in the event of an active threat, we want you to come home whole. This session will be a step in that direction, by laying out a simple and effective template that you can use in the hospitality environment to prepare for an active threat.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand why being prepared for an active threat is an essential for meeting professionals.
  • Identify the most realistic threats facing meetings and meeting facilities, what vulnerability that threat can exploit, and what the consequences would be.
  • Develop a plan for how to prepare for an active threat and steps to implement it immediately.

Speaker(s):

  • David Lau, Counterterrorism and Security Professional
