“See Something, Say Something, Do Something”
The Expanding Role of Bystander Intervention and Implications for Active Shooter Plans and Procedures

Unlike other violent crimes, the “active” aspect of an active shooter incident inherently implies that both law enforcement personnel and citizens have the potential to affect the outcome of the event based upon their responses. Active shooter incidents evolve quickly, and in the "response gap between "shots fired" and "shooter down" everyone on scene is a potential first responder. Individuals, organizations and communities must understand and prepare for the changing nature of active shooter threat, and enhance their capabilities to respond and recovery from incidents of mass violence of all types and sizes. This presentation will provide an overview of the "Stop the Killing, Stop the Dying, Stop the Crying" approach to violent events, as well as resources and recommendation for program development and training.

“Lessons Learned from Hackers for Physical Security Practitioners”

Physical security is typically viewed as having two primary players - the good guys and the bad guys. With the evolution of technology, a third group has emerged, one that enjoys the challenge of finding vulnerabilities in current security systems. These creative individuals are now seeking to better basic technology through unorthodox ways. Just as lock picking groups view the activity as a "sport", the white-hats are attacking physical security technology for the challenge. This has led to some dramatic, yet positive shifts in the security and technology environment.

For this presentation, we will review lessons learned from this hacking community and see examples of improvements that the industry has made to address them. We will review some of the media exposure and reactions to these events by the news media and general public. We will attempt to explain questions like, "Why would anyone that isn't a locksmith, want to learn how to pick a lock?"

Further, we will focus on the lessons learned from recent real world incidents which have impacted the security industry and the world as a whole. This presentation will be educational and entertaining, for both the technical and non-technical security professionals.
