An Infopeople Webinar
Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM
Instructor: Dr. Steve Albrecht
Think you need to hire an expensive security consultant to conduct a site security assessment of your library? While it’s true that security professionals do have a certain expertise, it is possible to use the same techniques, questions, and assessment instruments as a security professional for your library.
Join presenter and security expert Dr. Steve Albrecht as he discusses how you can ask and answer the various questions about critical facility security components for your library, including: access control, visitor and vendor management, cameras, alarms, interior and exterior lighting, IT protections and controls, perimeter protections and emergency evacuations.
This webinar will help library professionals - who know their facilities better than any security consultant could ever - to perform a thorough assessment, write a draft report for feedback, and then create a finished report that can be used as a reasonable template for security improvements, policy changes, and training suggestions.
At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:
- Know how to ask and answer the various questions about critical facility security components for their library
- Know how to create a finished report that can be used for security improvements, policy changes and training.
This webinar will be of interest to: Library executives, department heads, and managers who are responsible for the safety and security of their facilities.
