Securing Conventions & Exhibitions: A Practical Exercise

January 30, 2020

Presented by Jennifer Hesterman

Join Dr. Jenni Hesterman, a retired Air Force colonel and international counterterrorism and soft target hardening expert, for this informative webinar session on how to proactively secure your conventions and exhibitions, and decrease vulnerability. She will introduce a scored assessment used by law enforcement to help organizations determine vulnerability to acts of violence and terrorism. Lessons learned from soft target attacks, red teaming events and other tactical and operational information will be interwoven into the session to add context. Participants will leave with an understanding of the current threat landscape; how to conduct a vulnerability assessment; a scored instrument for their venue or event; and unique ideas for securing and protecting mass gatherings.


12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. CST
