Preparing for the New Era of Civil Unrest

January 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

All security professionals can benefit from a knowledge and understanding of the causes, warning signs and behavioral dynamics of groups, crowds and mobs that are associated with protests and riots.

This continually-updated 60-minute program provides timely, actionable information to better protect an organizations’ personnel and assets in of potential group, crowd or mob situations.
