Physical Site Security and Compliance with Bank Protection Act 
During this session, the instructor will discuss how to conduct your own physical site security assessments utilizing the Blue-U Defense method. Their method does not entail looking at what many other organizations are looking at such as cameras, lighting, card readers, etc. Their theory is your building is your building, your people are your people, and your layout is your layout. So, how do they take what you currently have and, without spending any more money, significantly increase the safety and security of those people inside – your most valuable assets? The instructor will cover this and more!
