The tragic events of 9/11 reshaped our nation and the entire world. As such, companies located domestically here in the United States and around the world are being challenged each day with new opportunities to better protect their assets, their employees, products and all their stakeholders. There is a growing demand for better security at companies across the nation. A company's survival could depend on how prepared they are to prevent and respond when disaster strikes.

This disaster could come in many forms ranging from catastrophic weather events, an active shooter at your facility or workplace, or a terrorist or protester determined to cause harm to your people, products, image or brand.

We live and operate our businesses in a world that has a growing number of crises. Society is becoming more complicated and diverse. News travel faster and the general public have much more access to information. It is critical and imperative that companies and facilities are prepared for whatever crises may occur within their organization – prepared not only to deal with each situation but also to inform various audiences about what is being done.
