Prevention, Protection,Preparedness

On this day, an active shooting incident that had ended one hour ago and was well under control in the airport's baggage area led to 19 notifications of other false active shooter notifications. With no command and control and social media users offering information that was not accurate, the situation became out of hand with self-evacuation and the shutdown of the airport busing everyone out and restarting the following morning.

Community Security Best Practices

The Morrone 9/11 Center Team

Security Practices Standards are designed to support services that drive education, awareness, and effective implementation by stakeholders.  All mass environments and critical infrastructure require security protection.  Organizations need to ensure they have the processes and procedures in place to deliver an effective, efficient, and compliant security provision.  To assist organizations to be better prepared to meet these challenges, the 9/11 Center working with the INTERPORTPOLICE, has produced a guide that addresses the environment’s community security, from all the public to stakeholders, tenants, personnel, and security and police.

Project Griffin International (PGI) offers a wide-ranging strategy to improve and support security in environments where people gather, participate, or work by helping as one goes about their daily life by informing and reducing vulnerability to the extreme of serious crimes and terrorist activities. The strategy is based on the proven proactive operational imperatives of; Protect, Prevent, and Prepare. Using the community as part of this strategy can be beneficial in so many ways from helpful to essential.

Protective Security Management Systems (PSeMS).  This support the methodical and proactive approach for assessing and managing holistic security risks for senior leadership teams and security managers.  PSeMS incorporates an approach to security that addresses the components of information, physical, cyber, and personnel, and incorporates the requirement of accountability at a senior level within the organization.

From every day developments to Insider threat, cyber attacks, and even an active shooter incident, they are real threats that happen in today’s world.  Being prepared for the worst provides a safe environment for the every day and contributes to the well being of operational requirements; and more.

There needs to be preventative efforts. Using best practices will start an effective path that will not only enhance security, but provide operational, emergency and crisis preparation for the protection and preparedness of the environment.

Security requires a holistic approach.  It is also best when it is embraced on a top down manner.  Gone are the days when police alone can protect an environment by themselves.  Security, real security needs to be embraced at every level.  It requires management down to every employee, and even other individuals who are part of the work environment.
