Security, Risk and Crisis Management

Show organizers could be forgiven if the news they are seeing and reading over the last few years gives them pause.  Previously there was not much thought given to large gatherings of people and what might happen or that a celebratory or educational event could take a turn for the tragic.   Many organizers are now asking themselves, “Have I done enough?”  Looming over every show or event organizer are many concerns:

  • Is my event secure – are we prepared in the event of a security concern?
  • What can we do to mitigate risk?
  • What are the best practices for security, risk and crises management?

Many of you may already sleep soundly knowing you have assembled a plan in conjunction with vendors and key stakeholders and have communicated this plan clearly and well in advance.  Some may not know where to start with what at first, might be a daunting task of preparing for all possible risks or contingencies. The CEM program can help.  In November 2018 CAEM will be offering the CEM course Security, Risk and Crises Management.  This is a comprehensive course which identifies, analyzes, evaluates and addresses loss exposures and monitors risk control and financial resources for mitigating the undesirable effects of loss. This involves evaluating the security needs for an event and if a crisis should occur, having a crisis management team in place to manage it.

This is an essential program that can be taken as a stand-alone course or as part of the comprehensive CEM globally recognized designation.  One important part of risk management is to evaluate your event and have the right team in place if something should occur – the CEM course is a great place to start!
