JANUARY 21–25, 2019



This intensive five-day program teaches risk mitigation and incident management at the security manager/ detail lead level. Participants will learn, and then apply, the process of measuring risk by identifying pertinent and critical threats and mapping vulnerabilities to create a detailed RTVA (Risk/ Threat/ Vulnerability Assessment). Participants will thereafter define routine and emergency procedures based on the RTVA results. This program focuses on preventing, and limiting damage from, violent attackers (including active threats) and will include practical exercises pertinent to fixed site security and executive protection. Participants who complete this program satisfactorily will understand the “why”—not just the “how”—empowering them to implement effective and practical risk-based procedures at their fixed location or protective detail.

Who should attend:

This program is specifically designed for experienced security professionals responsible for defining routine and emergency procedures for corporate/ residential/ public spaces and executive protection details. Applicants to this program should be team leads/ detail leads/ managers/ directors OR have at least 5 years of currently consecutive experience at the operational level. If you have any questions about these criteria please email us at AS Solution champions diversity in the EP industry and encourages qualified candidates of all backgrounds to apply.
