ASIS International Chapter 208 is proud to host the second annual North East England regional event at Business Central offices; (www.businesscentraldarlington.co.uk) located a few minutes' walk from Darlington railway station, birthplace of the railways. The event brings together regional and national security professionals to discuss the important issues around 'Emergency Planning & Organisational Resilience'.
The 2015 shooting at the Emanuel AME church in Charleston, SC, and the Paris attacks illustrate that these risks must be assessed properly by security professionals responsible for the safety of cultural properties and hospitality venues. Andy Davis will be on the panel of experts at this event.
The Save® programme has been devised to improve levels of security awareness and vigilance in order to enable staff to proactivley protect themselves, their colleagues and the organisation:

ASIS International Chapter 208 is proud to host the first North East England regional event at the Ramside Hall hotel, (www.ramsidehallhotel.co.uk) located on the outskirts of beautiful historic Durham City.
Following on from the blog that was released last week and the requests for information about how I would assess the levels of security at a hotel I have written this follow up blog.
On the 16th of January the Splendid Hotel in Burkina Faso, in Africa became one of the latest hotels and hospitality venues to fall victim to an attack by Islamic extremists. Should we be concerned or should we accept that this type of attack is always going to occur?
This one day workshop provides managers and organisational leads with an understanding of what ‘Duty of Care’ responsibilities and liabilities exist and what impact they can have on the organisation, and individuals within it. The workshop is suited for those organisations that operate in difficult and at times hostile environments but equally those countries where the risks may not be as obvious but where they still exist.
In the UK, irrespective of the size, scale or nature of your organisation there is a legal obligation for your leadership team to proactively ensure the safety, security and general well-being of all staff working on your behalf or on your premises...
Many galleries, museums and stately homes will start the process of protection their artwork and antiquities but not all will complete the process – hence my likening art protection to building jigsaws which also get started but not all are correctly completed.
Since returning to the UK I have been able to hold a number of discussions with business owners, company executives and private individuals. One of the things that continues to strike me is the lack of understanding about the organisational risks that exist and can directly impact companies whether small, medium or large.
For the past 12 years I have travelled the world managing security risks and implementing risk reduction strategies for a wide range of organizations. During all of this time one aspect of security risk management that is constantly overlooked; or at best played lip service to is the education of staff about security risks that they, or the organisation face.
