Mass shootings seem to be more and more prevalent nowadays. As the world focuses all its attention on the “why”, we must focus our attention on how we can better prepare ourselves to not only respond to but also learn and understand key concepts that are critical in potentially preventing these tragedies within our critical infrastructure sectors and our communities alike. Half the session will cover the latest statistics, the attack cycle, recent case studies and observable pre-attack indicators. The second half of the session will be a best practices panel discussion with subject matter experts in counterterrorism, federal law enforcement and the Presidential Medal of Valor for Public Safety recipient Captain Ray Bottenfield who was one of the police officers who successfully confronted an active shooter on a California school campus.
