Corporate security teams hope never to respond to an active shooter situation. But given today’s realities, companies spend a great deal of time developing guidelines, holding training sessions, and carrying out drills to ensure that their staff will be prepared in case an active shooter event occurs.
Protocols in place for many organizations don’t adequately incorporate publicly available datasets into their response procedures – thereby forgoing a valuable, real-time information resource that can enable faster, more confident decision making. Public information streams such as social media, blogs, the dark web and more, can serve as essential inputs before, during and after an active shooter crisis.
- Determine why these publicly available datasets are so important
- Comprehend how to implement these datasets into your pre-existing active shooter response plans
- Apply real world examples of how active shooter response was improved with the use of publicly available information
- Assess best practices from experts in the security field
