Critical Thinking Skills for Security Solutions NEW!

Saturday, September 27–Sunday, September 28

How can security professionals best assess ambiguous situations and solve difficult problems? What thinking techniques help minimize cognitive biases and encourage new insights? How do they think critically about current and future challenges?

Each day security professionals confront real-world threats and dilemmas, often reacting instinctively to uncertainty and conflicting information rather than approaching problems critically and analytically. Structured analytic techniques help professionals frame projects, avoid analytic traps, stimulate creative alternatives, and make arguments more compelling. Understanding and applying basic critical thinking skills and structured analytic methods generate better security solutions, save time over the long run, and build collaborative teams.

This two-day workshop provides practical guidance in applying key critical thinking techniques to security problems ranging from sensitive facilities to insider threats. Learn and practice analytic strategies that improve rigor, avoid mental traps, and communicate clearly with others. Hands-on exercises and case studies teach you how to use logic, analysis, synthesis, creativity, judgment, and systematic approaches to gather, evaluate, and challenge information to effectively form decisions and outcomes.

Working in partnership with GSX and Globalytica (an affiliate of Pherson Associates), ASIS offers this Certificate Course to address potential workforce competency needs for future security management. Certificate courses follow the rigors of higher education and provide evidence of attainment through assessment or testing.

Developing and Implementing an Insider Threat Program NEW!

Saturday, September 27–Sunday, September 28

An insider threat arises when anyone with authorized access to the information or assets an organization values most uses that access—either intentionally or unintentionally—to inflict harm to the organization or damage national security. Failing to identify and mitigate the threat can have devastating consequences for your organization’s assets and increase vulnerability to terrorist activity or economic espionage.

This comprehensive program is designed to develop the critical components of an Insider Threat Program using modern analytic techniques and measures. Using a security Return on Investment (ROI) approach, learn how to evolve your current security program into a converged management structure that will identify and deter individuals posing both violent and non-violent threats. Learn the skills and procedures required to identify social-psychological factors critical to shaping a comprehensive insider threat program. Real case studies are used to explain how counterproductive work behavior can reveal early signs of a potential insider threat. The program will examine potential risk indicators and how organizations can best be structured to detect and deter the insider threat.

School Safety and Security: “What We Need is a Plan”

Saturday, September 27–Sunday, September 28

8:00 am – 5:00 pm

From program management to safety and security systems design, application, and deployment, schools everywhere and in every category are now assessing security and asking the question: “Do we have enough?” One superintendent at a K-12 school district asked this important question of their district’s security, faculty, and facility staff. “What we need is a plan” was a resounding response. It was also a good response, considering that a designer’s first recommendation is to assess the school’s security plan effectiveness, and how it fuses policies and procedures with effective use of technology. Where are the vulnerabilities and what simple, but extremely important aspects may have been overlooked? Find out in this two-day program.

A Risk Assessment Approach to Facility Security Design

Sunday, September 28

8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Understanding the facility security design process is absolutely critical for every stakeholder involved in a project. Before anyone begins talking about security solutions, project initiators have to understand the process and key players involved. Experts will define the steps in a proven process: from establishing the need for security, through asset and risk assessment, through development of functional requirements, to identifying preliminary mitigation measures. Before embarking on a security project, learn the importance of functional requirements and hear practical examples of how they are best developed and used.
