Dan Pascale, a Certified Protection Professional (CPP), is responsible for security and emergency management-related services for Margolis Healy. In this role, he has worked with dozens of IHEs to conduct emergency plan and program reviews as well as hazard, risk, and vulnerability assessments. Dan has also conducted executive training programs, both facility and campus-wide security assessments, and developed relevant emergency preparedness and security-related policies and procedures.
This webinar is intended to assist IHEs in building a comprehensive physical security program and in assessing current capabilities beyond the use of cameras and electronic access control systems. This includes using crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) practices to identify appropriate territorial reinforcement, campus lighting needs and deficiencies, use of way-finding signage, and community engagement. In addition, Dan will discuss the value and methodology for conducting self-assessments, who should participate in the assessments, and what to do with the information collected. He will explore the interrelationships amongst people, policy, and technology, and how each of these plays an equally important role in creating safer campuses. The totality of this information is used to compare your current state of security against best and promising practices, and to identify gaps and opportunities to make reasonable enhancements. Dan will also discuss the importance of sustainability, changes in technology, and the need to replace equipment at the end of its life.
This webinar is appropriate for all audiences having a role in the planning and development of a campus security program, including campus safety, facilities, information technology, and others.
