In a post 9/11 world, the FBI initiated a program called Tripwire. The mission of the program was to identify concerning behavior in the community that could indicate a looming threat of a terror attack. Using the same concepts, we have developed a program for small businesses designed for the same mission. We use a systematic approach to identify individuals who exhibit threatening or concerning behavior, assess the risk, and provide advice on appropriate interventions, resources, and support to mitigate the risk.
The “gold standard” certification for security management professionals. Certified expert in seven key domains of security.
Certified Crisis Managers with 52 years of FBI and Secret Service experience.
