House of Worship Security Workshop

March 23, 2016 9:50 AM | Rob Layne (Administrator)

The ASIS Savannah Low Country Chapter, with the Bluffton (South Carolina) Police Department, hosted a security workshop, training approximately 50 leaders from various houses of worship. The event was covered by various media outlets. The ASIS Cultural Property Council’s Houses of Worship Committee led the development of a security risk assessment process tailored to churches, synagogues, mosques, and other religious facilities. The risk analysis includes a security survey as part of an overall comprehensive process to identify critical assets requiring protection. Once the assets are known, threats, hazards, and vulnerabilities are ranked on a numerical scale of likelihood of occurrence, and mitigating security strategies are devised. Jim McGuffey, CPP, PCI, PSP, the chapter’s chair, was the instructor for the workshop.
