SESSION DESCRIPTION
CORE TRAINING: Hotel Security
There is no one size fits all solution to hotel security. A comprehensive yet implementable security structure for an integrated entertainment resort complex is multi-faceted and requires creative thinking to achieve hospitality friendly yet effective security. 

Mac will delve into the various segments that make up hotel security and how they work together symbiotically to keep your guests, teams and assets safe. From simple fixes that are so easy to do but so many don’t implement to high tech solutions and the human element, we will address topics including but not  limited to:

  • threat landscape
  • security audits and master plans
  • current trends
  • what works and what doesn’t
  • preparing for emergencies
  • policies & procedures
  • training
  • CPTED
