Board for Certification in Homeland Security News

ACFEI's Board for Certification in Homeland Security news:

CHS is proud to announce a new membership application for Active Military Personnel. All Active Military Personnel should use this form when applying for CHS certification and membership.

Also, don't forget, that the course Managing Executive Security, written by respected security authority Dave Johnson, is now available online for only $124.95 for members, and $250 for nonmembers.

Directors of Security may encounter risk factors involving “C” level staff from external organizations, disgruntled employees or because their company is establishing business in areas affected by instability, civil strife, even terrorism or conditions of war. When facing a need to establish protection programs for designated individuals, how does one approach this task? What are the components of such a program? How does one determine which are the right ones to implement given the perceived circumstances? Is there a way to measure and quantify the risk factors? If so, how are those used in the development process of such a program? How can one determine if the right things are being done and if it is a cost effective program?

Establishing Executive Security Programs presents a threat assessment based method of determining resource requirements necessary to establish, or modify, an executive security program. Executive security operations, methodology and goals will be discussed. The conduct of threat assessments will be outlined, sources of information and other resources will be identified and the student will gain an understanding of how to apply the results of such assessments to the design of the security program.
