In this session, we will cover the challenges of embedding security into the built environment and will suggest a new methodology that greatly increases the chances of success.
This will focus on the achievement of inherent security through early involvement of security professionals with an understanding of architectural planning and design disciplines, demonstrating that collaborative planning and design can achieve more efficient and effective protection through innovative solutions, with case study examples.
We will cover the management of security risk rather than risk removal, with a focus on addressing biggest risks through physical environmental design, providing a base that better enables better security management and operational response.
We would hope that those attending the webinar will take away examples of how to better protect urban environments for different types of properties and spaces at risk and perhaps most importantly, an understanding of emerging approaches/guidance and leading practices that is driving evolution in both the security and development industries.
