Risk Assessment training – Part I Government Facilitates Risk
February 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Part 1-Government Facilities- This program will be instructed by Lt. Col. Glenn Remsen
Col. Remsen will be discussing the general issues concerning Infrastructure protection as well as the Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit (CIPU) Model. This unit was set up with the full approval of Sheriff Leon Lott and the South Carolina Military Department and has both a military and civilian mission.
Its military mission is to handle the security and force protection matters pertaining to the State Guard. This involves working closely with the National Guard’s Anti-Terrorism Threat Working Group, developing threat and vulnerability assessments, conducting personnel security investigations and other activities which involve specialized methods of policing.
The unit’s civilian mission is to help secure elements of critical infrastructure in Richland County through the Sheriff’s Department. This involves conducting comprehensive threat and vulnerability assessments, conducting active shooter training at schools for school staff members, conducting facility penetration tests and performing surveillance operations. Because of the uniqueness of CIPUs skill sets, it has been called upon to assist outside of Richland County and has even been called upon to perform field assignments in North Carolina.
Other areas of discussion will be Challenges Facing Government Facilities and the Assessment Lifecycle for Government Facilities.
