Security has become a major concern for events of any size and of any purpose. Events of any nature are vulnerable to security threats of many natures, but by investing in professional event security you can prevent attacks before they happen.
If you are planning an event, be careful not to overlook the need and importance of event security. Professional security officers will protect guests while also protecting the nature of your event. Here are six key things to keep in mind as you create a security plan for your next event:
Even if you’ve hired professional event security, you must make sure that all staff and team members are well informed of the security plan in place and their responsibilities, but you must also take the time to train them for emergencies. If all participating individuals have a clear understanding of responsibilities, protocols, and how to respond in case of emergency, you will be able to stop a threat before it can escalate and minimize chaos if a threat has materialized.
Be careful that you are not naïve enough to believe that an attack cannot happen at your event. Security threats can come from the most unexpected sources, so take the time to work with your security company to assess threat levels and potential sources. Threat assessments make it possible for both sides to prepare.
An effective security plan extends to cover all elements of an event. Varying techniques, tactics and protocols should be considered in order to stop threats from any angle. Security plans may extend from uniformed officers to metal detectors, camera surveillance, and more. The knowledge and experience available from a reputable company will help you to create the multi-faceted approach that will most benefit your individual event.
In order to attend your event guests likely provided personal data at the time of registration. As an event planner, it is your responsibility to ensure that all information shared by a guest is protected and secured. Be sure to only collect data through trusted and reliable systems that will allow you maintain the privacy of your guests or participants.
Working with a trusted venue and reputable vendors will ensure that your event, your guests, and all private data will remain protected. Trustworthy venues will have established security measures and invaluable experience to help you make sure that your event goes smoothly.
In the event of an attack or emergency, there is a high risk that medical situations will occur. Along with a security plan, make sure that you have a plan in place that will guide event staff and security personnel on how to handle or react to medical emergencies. Be sure that this plan includes information on local and nearby hospitals along with police and fire departments.
