School Adversary Workshop
Presenter: Peter Crabbe, Chameleon Associates
10:00 am - 10:50 am
In this unique workshop led by Chameleon Associates, an international security consulting firm that specializes in school security, you and others in your group will plan an attack against a school. The goal of this workshop is for you to begin thinking like the enemy so that you can assess your school through the eyes of the adversary. Adversarial based security is the best way to secure your school, but it requires you to learn how to think like the enemy. Once you think that way, you will be able to imagine the different kinds of attacks that could happen against your school, recognize them early, and set your security team to defend against them. The goal: mitigate the attack before it ever takes place.
