Session Highlights

Dana Turner – Security Educations Systems, LLC

Focus Groups & Case Studies: The Dirty Dozen

The Bank Protection Act mandates that all of your employees must be trained about the institution’s security policies and procedures. But what about the Security Manager? Who trains him/her about making critical decisions that are often required by the security function’s personnel? There are so many opportunities for the Security Manager to make inappropriate decisions – particularly during a crisis event. Making effective, critical decisions requires education, training and experience – and it’s the “experience” part that is the most difficult to acquire. Working within the nation’s military services, in law enforcement or in emergency management fields will provide that experience. Working as a banker won’t.

The institution’s “security environment” isn’t static – it’s evolutionary and it can change from minute to minute. A change within this environment will prompt both employees and customers to behave in predictable ways. These behaviors then establish the institution’s baseline “security environment”. Your most valuable survival skill as a person is to be able to predict what will likely happen next. Your most valuable contribution to the institution as the Security Manager is to also be able to predict what will happen next. You should think about what might happen to you and other persons if certain events do occur — and then plan for what needs to be done during these circumstances. The security function’s primary responsibilities include protecting:

  • Employees, insiders and institution-affiliated parties — and their families
  • Customers, vendors, third-party service providers — and other persons lawfully on the premises
  • Facilities and equipment that the institution owns, manages, maintains, leases or controls
  • Assets that are both tangible and intangible — particularly the institution’s image
  • Records and documents that exist in all paper & electronic forms

This presentation separates “business” responsibilities from “personal” responsibilities — and demonstrates how those responsibilities may affect the institution’s policies, procedures, practices and personnel. The exercises addressed in this presentation are designed to pose real-life, real-time scenarios that Security Managers and other personnel may have to handle at any time. Examples from each of the five (5) responsibility categories are used to demonstrate the progressive form of decision-making that reduces the risk of conflict among employees, customers and offenders. Participants volunteer to act as the Security Manager for each topic addressed. Each participant will be asked to:

  • Correctly identify relevant issues
  • Propose potential strategies for resolving the issue
  • Assess resources necessary to resolve the issue
  • Decide upon an action plan
