ANTITERRORISM - building design - crime prevention - security engineering
UFC – DOD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings (UFC) – This course is available to all Federal, State, local government and private sector SECURITY and ENGINEERING professionals. While the course focuses on securing DOD assets, the concepts learned are prudent and applicable in reducing the criminal and terrorist threat to non-DOD buildings, as well. Contractors and consultants seeking construction contracts with the Department of Defense will attend this course. The course is designed to familiarize students with the fundamentals of Security Engineering and antiterrorism related to protecting critical facilities from common criminals and acts of terrorism. Much of the course is dedicated to understanding and applying updated Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) and other current supporting security and antiterrorism related documents. This is a DOD Certification course for those involved in developing mitigation strategies and building design review.
Physical Security Engineering Convergence Bootcamp (PSECB) - With electronic technologies quickly converging in the physical security vertical it is paramount to understand first, the basics of physical security, secondly, how this new technology will effect the physical security landscape of the future, and thirdly, how the correct physical security environment can actually enhance the technologies effectiveness. Every good physical security program starts with assessing and quantifying criticality, threats and vulnerabilities. Students will use a variety of methodologies during a field exercise. The data they collect will be used over the next few days, as we spend time addressing mitigation strategies and best practices that are proven to deter a catastrophic event from happening and if that fails, reduces its effects on personnel and facilities.
Interagency Security Committee: Risk Management Process and Physical Security Guidelines (ISC) - The Interagency Security Committee (ISC) developed the ISC Risk Management Process to ensure that security becomes an integral part of the planning, design, and construction of new federal office buildings and major modernization projects. The criteria considers security in all building systems and elements. In this 3-day workshop we cover the risk management process for federal facilities and security industry best practices in protecting property and people. Attendees will learn how to use the Facility Security Level (FSL) matrix and Risk Assessment Database to identify the appropriate level of protection, determine effective protection options and express their findings to decision makers. Secrets to requesting and receiving funding also discussed.
Security Integration in Building Design (SIB) - Familiarizes students with design principles used in preventing and detecting criminal activity and reducing the effects of terrorist attack on the safety of personnel and damage to facilities and critical infrastructure. Students learn to use Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles to control the exterior of the facility while applying 5 basic strategies to the inhabited space.
Using Building Design to Reduce the Effects of Terrorist Attack (DBT) – Based on the assumption that preventive measures must be in place to be effective, students learn 25 mitigation strategies that when successfully applied reduce the impact of terrorist attack. We examine the current state of terrorism in the United States, its evolving nature and the future use of weapons of mass destruction. A variety of options are explored for addressing the most common manmade threats we face today and for the foreseeable future. Student develop skills for planning exterior and interior inhabited spaces as there is the move to make buildings, neighborhoods and cities safe. FREE UPON REQUEST
Security for Architects and Engineers (SAE) – This 2-day course explores principles developed over the last twenty years in the “social behavior” arena. The same concepts that effect positive social engineering are duplicated in designing inhabited spaces to cause people to do what you want them to do. Students will learn to design “from the curb inward” and incorporate overlapping threat prevention principles, including CPTED and others. We also look at crime and terrorist activity and their causes and how they affect design.
Hiding Security In Plain Sight (HSP) – This workshop is based on the premise that future buildings will be “Smart”. They will include a variety of IoT connect devices that make them “efficient”. We take this idea a step further and explore how to use building design, including interior design and external landscaping, to create inhabited spaces where people feel comfortable and safe. By adding the concepts discussed in this workshop the public will use the space because there’s an atmosphere of safety and not that of a police state. FREE UPON REQUEST
Planning Electronic Security Systems for Buildings and Compounds (ESS) – This course was developed with the asset owner in mind. Students will learn how to design CCTV systems for different types of secure areas, compounds and installations. Students will be able to design their own intrusion detection (IDS) and access control systems (ACS) for sensitive compartmented Information facilities (SCIF) and secure vaults, limited access or controlled areas, and high value storage areas. Students will ultimately combine camera systems with video analytics, with ACS and IDS. This very interactive course has numerous case studies built into the curriculum that promote the understanding of ESS fundamentals. Student will be able to implement ESS principles in designing and overseeing construction of a comprehensive and integrated ESS system.
Security Lighting: Influencing Positive Behaviors (SLS) – This class examines the relationships between theory, energy conservation, and social and environmental factors for man-made and natural light applications. Two full days focus on the effective use of lighting the environment to augment other forms of security technology. The effects of light on human physiological and psychological behavior are discussed in detail.
Access Control Concepts and Entry Control Facility Design (ECF) – Like the Maintaining Control Workshop conducted by the US Army Surface Deployment and Distribution Traffic Engineering Agency, this class is intended for government, military and contractor SECURITY or ENGINEERING personnel involved in designing entry control facilities. The curriculum focuses on the design features required for the effective and efficient operation of access control points at installation perimeters and controlled areas from a security design perspective. The curriculum includes, classification and usage, barrier selection, effective use of lighting and cameras, design philosophies, vehicle inspection and rejection capabilities, guard protection, visitor control centers, traffic control and geometric roadway design, electrical power and IT requirements.
Sensitive Information Facility Design and Construction (SCIF) – After attending this unclassified class, students will be able to oversee design and construction of a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) which meets official government requirements for a secure area where classified information is handled. The stringent physical security requirements; such as, access control systems, thickness of doors, the strength of concrete and the use of alarms, and acoustical controls which prevent eavesdropping, information exposure or “jamming”, and surveillance prevention will be discussed. The use of electronic media within the facility will also be explored.
Safe-Room and Shelter Design and Engineering (SAF) – A safe-room is a structure or protected area, that provides protection from man-made or natural threats, for both short and long periods of time. It usually serves as a fall-back position in case of emergencies. Effective design components; i.e., air requirements and waste management, capacity limits, use of electronic media and other technologies will be examined in detail.
Beyond Protecting the “C’ Suite: Safe-havens (BPC) – We outline trends in the trans-national and domestic terrorist threat arenas and how they relate to the protection of the “C” Suite. We firmly believe other high occupancy spaces; i.e., retail centers, hospital waiting rooms, airport gate areas, schools, etc. deserve this type of protection, too. We’ll exchange ideas on how to incorporate sound security principles into corporate culture thereby reducing risks to personnel and facilities. After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Vulnerability Assessment and Risk Analysis (VAR) – Students will learn the difference between qualitative and quantitative risk analysis. They will use a variety of methodologies (including MSHARPP & SME3R [asset owner's point of view], CARVER [aggressor's point of view], ABRA [combination] & CAIRA [analysis of energy systems supporting critical assets]) to evaluate single or multiple buildings and critical infrastructure nodes. This class is very “hands-on” with numerous field exercises assessing lighting, electric systems, drinking water, perimeter. They will be able to write a comprehensive report detailing their findings in a clear and concise manner, so that decision makers can allocate funding and resources effectively.
Drills and Exercise Planning and Development (DEP) – Geared for those who must evaluate training plans, drills and other operational factors during extreme conditions. A series of table-top and field evaluations are designed and tested. Exposes students to DOD Combat Training type stress. Upon completion student will be able to design, development and conduct live, virtual and constructive (LVC) drills and exercises that conform to the Post Katrina Management Reform Act (Public Law 109-29, Oct 4, 2006). If you are just checking the box for compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) then this class is not for you. If, on the other hand, you want to exceed CFR requirements then you should attend.
Security Criteria Development: Exceeding DHS/DOD Guidelines (SCD) – This course focuses on writing criteria for antiterrorism, continuity-of-operations (COOP) and resiliency, information security, physical security, operational security plans and operating procedures to meet Federal, State and local government requirements. What should be included in each type of plan is discussed in detail. Students will learn how to translate company policy into the five functional areas of every good plan. They will also learn how to integrate security into every facet of an organization’s operation and create a “culture of security” that promotes safety and the well-being of personnel. Students will take home templates for AT, INFO, PHY SEC, COOP and OPSEC plans that they have worked on in-class.
Adding Antiterrorism to Your Security Posture (ATS) - The face of terrorism is changing and so should our approach to reduce its effects. This 4-hour workshop explores emerging trends and the possibility of extending Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) beyond the current four principles. We define another 21 strategies that specifically address a variety of terrorist tactics; i.e., active shooters, bombings (vehicle and handheld), kidnapping and others. FREE UPON REQUEST
