Training and Education Courses in the Ottawa

Advanced Physical Security

Knowledge Advancement Solutions will be continuing its training regime with its Advanced Physical Security concepts course running June 25 through 27 June (inclusive). Intended for intermediate to advanced practitioners intending to hone their skills, this course will go into significant detail on issues such as:

  • Impacts on security design given new workplace expectations (open concept design, pods and clustering, hoteling of workstations);
  • Adjusting security designs to deal with increased connectivity (PDA, smart devices, etc.) and the Internet of Things;
  • Expanding the protection of employees outside of the workplace and worksites; and
  • Factoring climate change and the uncertainty of weather into building design standards and specifications.

Those attending will have access to presentation materials and workbooks, but will also work through the application of the material using a group case study approach based on real events. On day three, candidates will have the opportunity to work through the material in near-real time in an exercise environment.

Recognizing that those participating each face unique operating environments, Knowledge Advancement Solutions has established its training in two parts. Following this course, those participating will be enrolled in the Knowledge Advancement Solutions learning platform where they will have the opportunity to interact with other candidates and instructors for one year following the course. Once registered in this community, participants can renew their participation in the community, ensuring that they continue to have access not only to the expanded community but also updated working tools and other materials.

This 3-day course and its ongoing supplemental materials are available to participants for $950 + tax on a first come, first served basis. Please note that we reserve the right to reschedule based on projected attendance.

What do people say?

“In spite of the many scary scenarios in this excellent and timely book, Mr Goodman is no neo-Luddite. He thinks innovations could ultimately lead to self-healing computer networks that detect hackers and automatically make repairs to shut them out. He rightly urges the private and public sectors to work more closely together, “crowdsourcing” ideas and know-how.” – The Economist
