Investopedia states that the added coverage of an Umbrella Policy (extra liability insurance “is most useful to individuals whoRead More →

Remember Ghostbusters (1984) the movie? The Ghostbusters became heroes when they waged a high-tech battle with the supernatural after they stumbled upon a gateway to another dimension that could release evil upon the city.

The big question on everyone’s mind after an incident or a tragedy is, will more security help? Let’s take a look at the facts. In 2018 the global physical security market was $84.1 BILLION and projected to grow, and yet there were still over 300 mass shootings in the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security recognizedRead More →

When it comes to active assailants, active shooters, terrorists, extremists, and numerous other evil doers, waiting years and years for Artificial Intelligence is clearly not an option we can afford. Preventive Intelligence, however, is real and making organizationsRead More →

A lot of schools, organizations, and communities are focusing on threat assessment teams (TATs) right now, are you equipping yours for success?
