Increased domestic tensions, targeted violence and disinformation have made public buildings more frequent targets of violent civil unrest. Understanding the current threat environment with its evolving tactics is critical for risk management and preparedness efforts. Lessons learned and best practices from real-world incidents by those who have firsthand experience are invaluable.
In this session, Daryle Hernandez, chief of the Interagency Security Committee, will moderate a panel of senior security professionals and practitioners who will share perspectives on the contemporary threat and how to prepare for and respond to it based on their recent experience confronting these incidents. Their knowledge and lessons learned may be applied to federal buildings, state, municipal and private-sector buildings accessible to the public.
