At ISC West, attendees don’t just want to know what the latest gadgets are in the industry, but ways to integrate information learned through education sessions into their specialty sector. The “See Something, Say Something!” session is dedicated to help all agencies takeaway everyday best practices.
The “See Something, Say Something!” name, originally coined by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), reflects the national campaign launched by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in July 2010. The campaign has a simple goal: raise public awareness of criminal and national security threats and encourage the importance of reporting any suspicious activity to law enforcement. In four words: See Something, Say Something! The slogan goes hand-in-hand with anti-crime and anti-terrorism efforts. Threats at any level should be reported and the national campaign encourages not only law enforcement action, but agency action too.
If you are curious to know how many agencies outside of law enforcement are aiding the “See Something, Say Something!” effort, learn the transit and transportation security best practices on Thursday, March 29. The education session features speakers Tanawah (Tanner) Downing, COO at Global Government Services and Supervisory Air Marshal-in-Charge Douglas J. Hladky from the Federal Air Marshal Service. Both experts will discuss the evolution of detecting threats and examine several cases where transportation security faced challenges and learned ways to improve security for the future.
The session should leave you armed with the knowledge and best practice approaches for security across air, rail and highways. Catch the session titled, “MS03: See Something, Say Something! Supporting Transit and Transportation Security Best Practices in 2012” at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 29. During this ISC West education session devoted to some of the best practices adopted by transit and transportation security agencies, attendees should leave the session armed with the knowledge in safeguarding people, the environment, property and information, while remaining in compliance with typical transit system and governmental requirements.
