Given today's ever-changing threat environment, preparing for and training employees to cope with active threats and workplace violence should be a key piece of an organization's emergency action plan.

A Unique Training Opportunity

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency is hosting a one-day Security Workshop to enhance awareness of, and response to, an active shooter event:

  • Educating participants on the history of active shooter events;
  • Describing common behavior, conditions, and situations associated with active shooters; and
  • Fostering communication between critical infrastructure owners and operators and local emergency response teams. This course includes discussions of interoperability, communications protocols, and best practices for planning, preparedness, and response.

Building Emergency Planning Capabilities

The event will also describe how to incorporate key elements of successful incident management into planning efforts including:

  • Communication and Incident Planning for employees;
  • Emergency Action Plan Development;
  • Recognizing Behavioral Indicators; and
  • Coordinating with First Responders.
