Total Security Summit in Frisco, TX
August 24-26, 2020


Leadership Will Make or Break Your Organizational Culture
Panelists include
Joe Malato, National Director of Associate Safety & Risk Management, Valet Living
and more!

Leadership is the cornerstone of a supportive, positive, and productive company culture—and leadership doesn’t stop with the executive team. All managers must be willing to develop their leadership skills in order to ensure everyone within a business is moving in the right direction. Attend our panel discussion to see how professionals in the field are taking the pulse of their organizational cultures, adjusting strategy where necessary, and leading their employees and colleagues towards more successful outcomes.


Building a Security-Centered Organization

Security may not be everybody’s job within an organization, but it’s still everybody’s responsibility. How can you get all employees at your company to understand the importance of both cyber and physical security to the business and encourage them to act with this in mind every day? Join a group of your peers to discuss best practices in process and procedure compliance in order to create a security-centered culture.

The Role of Technology in Security Training

Good security depends on good training, and the training space is constantly being disrupted by new technological tools. From eLearning to virtual reality scenarios to training groups of employees at multiple sites, which technologies can help you best achieve your security training goals? Join the conversation to share what works, what doesn’t, and how you think you might be able to improve education and learning at your organization.


Empathy: The Security Leadership Superpower
Presented by Burke Brownfeld, Director of Security & Global Safety, Visa

A thought provoking discussion on the practical application of empathy and how to use empathy in strategic security decision making, leveraging best practices in psychology and conflict resolution.

Workplace Emergency Planning: Preparing for Any Situation
Presented by Robert Ball, Coordinator, Educational Support Services, Safety and Security, Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District

Emergencies can occur at a moment's notice. From severe weather, to a gas leak, to an active shooter, being as prepared as possible equals lives saved.

In this session, participants will learn how to plan for any emergency situation at any facility. This session will cover severe weather readiness, active shooter training suggestions and research, situations that occur after-hours, and basic emergency planning. It will serve as a guide to preparing your and your staff to be ready to take on any situation.

Winning Over the C-Suites: Getting your Security and Surveillance Plans Approved by Executive Management
Presented by Donald Childers, VP of Surveillance and Loss Prevention, Cherokee Nation Entertainment

Security professionals are continuously having to take on greater responsivities, oftentimes without the necessary resources to adequately accomplish their tasks. Everting from increasing your guard force to updating the technology you plan to utilize can be a hard sell to executive management.

This presentation is designed to raise awareness of a few do’s and don’ts when presenting to executives. We will discuss considerations on formulating your presentation and increasing your ability to receive buy-in from the C-suites.
