Assessing the Security Landscape

Before any infrastructure is put in place, it's paramount to survey the environment and understand the unique risk factors involved with your event. Here are the essential steps in performing a thorough security assessment:


Understanding the Nature of the Event


Is your event a high-profile industry conference or a community gathering? The very essence of what your event represents will dictate your security approach. High-profile events with potentially controversial topics or high-profile speakers will require a more rigorous security posture.


Identifying Potential Threats


You need to play a scenario-driven chess game, foreseeing any possible threats. Whether it's the risk of unruly elements disrupting a music festival or the potential of corporate espionage at a technology expo, identifying these threats is the bedrock of your security framework.


Assessing Venue Vulnerability


The physical location of your venue is a major factor. Are there entry points that are difficult to control? Is the venue in a high-crime area? This critical assessment will affect your security staffing, technology deployment, and emergency preparedness plan. Has the venue been a target for any type of incident in the past? Has the industry experienced any security-related issues at similar events? Investigating the history can often be an indicator of future vulnerabilities.
