March 6th Event: Integrated Security Systems and the Human Factor
Integrated security systems combine alarm, CCTV, access control systems, and barriers with human security personnel to create a total system for the protection of assets. The weakest part of an integrated security system is the human component.
Integrated Security Systems and the Human Factor will provide attendees with an understanding of:
1. Basic physical security concepts;
2. How those basic security concepts are applied in the design of an integrated security system;
3. How humans are the component in an integrated security system that is most likely to fail;
4. How clearly written and carefully developed policies and procedures can mitigate the risk of the human component failing;
5. How a well developed security training program and ongoing refresher training can improve security personnel performance.
6. How security training can improve the safety of an organization and turn the organization's employees into "a force multiplier" to enhance safety.
