Any inter- esting projects that you can men- tion? We are currently supporting clients in the insurance industry, government contracting compa- nies, local/city governments, etc. In regard to interesting projects, we currently support a large insur- ance company with workplace violence prevention and planning. Our current efforts are centered around training the security staff, HR & legal staffs, managers and ultimately all employees on active shooter incidents. This train- ing includes awareness training centered on company employees and indicators that may be exhib- ited prior to carrying out such an event as well as reporting, etc. We also discuss the Run, Hide, Fight approach and what that means. We are also discussing the devel- opment of training for employees in the field that visit clients to address claims. There are occur- rences where employees are ver- bally accosted by clients and these verbal encounters could turn into physical confrontations. The train- ing would focus on situational awareness for employees and how to prepare to handle any incidents that occur while in the field.

I then received my security clearance and when I left the Marine Corps, I went to work in the intelligence community so I could maintain my clearance. I initially wanted to go into law enforcement but decided maintaining the clearance was key and I stayed in the security world. Can you talk about what new or emerging technologies you are see- ing or specifying today? I think a key emerging technol- ogy centers around social media and how you use that information to your benefit. For example, I am involved in a lot of workplace violence prevention and plan- What's your title and role at the company?
