Designing Secure Buildings (DSB) (3 Day Workshop) – A three day workshop designed to familiarize students with design principles used in preventing and detecting criminal activity and reducing the effects of acts of terrorism on the safety of personnel and damage to facilities and critical infrastructure. Specific modules include; Terrorism Ideologies, Security Basics, Philosophies and Design Strategies, Blast Fundamentals, Glazing and Window Systems, Lighting, Vehicle Barrier Selection, Electronic Security System, Perimeter Security, Weapons of Mass Destruction Use, and Preserving Historical Buildings. PSE SPSE MSME.

Designing Electronic Security Systems for Buildings and Compounds (ESS) (3 Day Workshop) – This three day workshop was developed with the asset owner in mind. Students will learn how to design CCTV systems for different types of secure level areas, compounds and installations. Students will be able to design their own intrusion detection (IDS) and access control (ACS) systems. 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. Upon returning back to the workplace, the student will be able to effective implement ESS principles in designing and overseeing construction of a comprehensive and integrated ESS system.

Security Criteria Development (SCD) (3 Day Workshop) – A workshop focusing 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.

Vulnerability Assessments and Risk Analysis Methodologies (VAR) (3 Day Workshop) – Field evaluations are conducted. Students will learn the differences between qualitative and quantitative risk analysis. They will use a variety of methodologies by evaluating single or multiple buildings and critical infrastructure nodes. This workshop 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 more effectively.

Drills & Exercise Planning and Development (DEP) (3 Day Workshop) – 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 Government of India law (where applicable).

Entry Control Facilities Design (ECF) (3 Day Workshop) – Government, military and contractor SECURITY or ENGINEERING personnel involved in designing entry control facilities will attend this three day course, which focuses on the design features required for the effective and efficient and safe operation from a security design perspective of access and entry control points at installation and controlled area perimeters.

Protecting Personnel, Facilities and Information (PPF) (2 Day Workshop) – This workshop has been specifically developed for decision makers. Course curriculum focuses on protecting personnel, the facilities they work in and the information systems they use. Students will learn what constitutes suspicious behavior, how and what to report, counter-surveillance techniques, what actions to take in case they are involved in an active shooter situation using RUN-HIDE-FIGHT philosophies, protecting sensitive information and mail handling procedures.

Safe Haven Design and Construction (SAF) (1 Day Workshop) – A safe-haven 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, waste management, capacity limits, use of electronic media and other technologies will be examined in detail.

Protecting Personal Information in the Digital Age (PPI) (1 Day Workshop) – This workshop addresses information handling and password management, social media vulnerabilities, data protection, cryptography, UNIX and WINDOWS Server Security. Student will learn how to ensure information is protected using the principles of “Power over Ethernet (PoE)”. They will also learn how to conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment and how to protect personal identity information (PII) in compliance with the law.

IT Sustainability & Disaster Recovery (ITS) (1 Day Workshop) – This workshop focuses on creating a sustainable IT environment within the corporate framework. Most companies cannot survive a catastrophic failure of their IT system – learn how to protect yours. Myths and misconceptions about new technologies will be discussed.
